Pink Card - Inspired by Packaging

My card design is CASEd from Susan Raihala's Simplicity blog and her recent "Get Inspired by Packaging #1" post. Scroll down in her post for the kraft, red, and white card that inspired mine. I changed the colors to pink, added some texture to the base layer, and embellished with two small punched flowers. Love her card! and mine too! Thank you, Susan!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink raspberry fizz (dark pink base layer) and sweet blush (light pink "package") and Paper Source blossom (medium pink oval). Adhered with foam tape for dimension.
  • Embossing folder is Cuttlebug swiss dots.
  • Oval die is the middle-sized die from Spellbinders Nestabilities classic ovals LG. Punches are 1/2" flower punch (EK Success) and 1/4" hole punch.
  • Baker's twine is pink sorbet from The Twinery.
  • Sentiment "celebrate" and dotted lines are computer-printed in Courier font with dark pink ink.
