#GDP012 CASE the Designer

This week at Global Design Project we  had to CASE one of the designers, Brian King. I am a huge fan of Brian's, a silent visitor to his blog and facebook page and an avid pinner as well! This is the card we were to CASE:
As always Brian likes to keep it clean with lots of layers and I have done the same. I have kept the square card and the layers, elected to go monochrome and changed the images.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Jingle all the way
Ink: Pool party and pacific point
Card: Pool party, pacific point and very vanilla
Accessories: Sleigh ride edgelits and Home for Christmas DSP

This week's theme at Global Design Project is Christmas! Definitely my favourite time of the year. Summer weather and long school holidays and time spent with family and friends. Not to mention a great opportunity for crafting!

The paper for the Christmas trees on these tags was created using reinkers and water spritzer on a sheet of plastic. The vanilla cardstock in then placed on top of the ink pattern, press down, peel off and allow to dry. I then cut them out with the perfect pines framelits, covered with crystal effects and a little glitter sprinkled on top.
