Among the Branches for #GDP08

Just a quick post to add my challenge card over at the Global Design Project. This week we are asked to ‘case’ a design from Kylie Bertucci.  I only recently discovered Kylie via Pinterest, just before the Global Design Project started.  I just love her style and I love the card we’ve been asked to ‘case’.  If you’re not sure of the term ‘case’ it stands for Copy And Share… Read More »

This week we were to case a design from one of the designers, Louise Sharp.  Here is Louise’s card.     I was inspired by the circular wreath shape used in her card, and for some reason, Christmas Pudding came into my head. If truth be told, I… Read More »

Christmas Card Ideas using the Stair Step Card for Technique Class
