Global Design Project - CASEing Brian King!

23 November 2015


This week the challenge over at the Global Design Project is 'CASE the Designer'.

Far Out!!! *insert clammy hands, sweat beads, heart racing - enter craftroom*
Does anyone else ever feel this way? Did you all feel this way when you CASE'ed my card a little while back? Oh my, the anxiety of CASE-ing one of my favourite people in the world, Brian King.

I'm not kidding, it was tough. But there is three things (and many more) I know about my close friend Brian: 1. He likes layers 2. He likes clean and 3. I know he thinks this little penguin from the Snow Place set is adorable!

So I set to task to give his gorgeous penguin card the justice it truly deserves. And I will say I am happy with it too. Isn't this little guy just dapper?

I really enjoyed making this card. The best part about creating something for someone, is that you think of that person the whole time you're making it. Not only was I CASE-ing my friend Brian, I was also making this card for him too! He has been such a huge support not only to the Global Design Project, but also with his friendship and I am so blessed to call him my friend. 

The best part about this stamp set is that not only is the set just too cute, but it comes with matching Framelits, so no fussy cutting! Yay. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my Global Design Project creation this week. Be sure to go and admire our amazing Design Team and also play along with us this week too!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this card, Louise, and lovethat I can call you my friend. I love your write-up - you are dead on about the things I love. The layers in this card are music to my eyes. Wait! That doesn't make sense. Your layers are divine, and your use of colors is amazing. This little penguin has never looked so adorable, dapper or festive. I am honored that you played along with my challenge this week. ❤️

  2. You got Brian in one Lou!! The King of Clean! Mind you, looking at your CASE, I need to call you the Queen of Clean, lol. Brilliant CASE card Lou xox

  3. Goodness me! I simply adore your creation, it just makes me want to smile and I am not even a fan of that stamp set. Yes, the "KING" of stamping does like clean with layers and you have displayed that so well. I notice the little bit of crystal effects on his bow tie.

  4. Louise! this is an adorable.. stinkin cute card.. :) LOVE IT!

  5. holy layers batman!!! someone will be very spoiled to receive this!

  6. So adorable. You took Brian's card and made it totally Louise. Love it.

  7. What an adorable little penguin and teamed with polka dots just makes him more adorable. Love your card and love you! x

  8. Just love it: so funny you arranged the details on your card.
