Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday project! Don’t you just love Tuesdays? There’s so much going on for a Tuesday, but the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group is my favorite thing to check out first thing in the morning. Did you see today’s sample? If not, here it is:
For some reason I really struggled with this one. I knew I was going to use the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper with Marina Mist cardstock, and had the whole leaves and stems stuff in my head out of silver foil, and then when I had to put it together, the mojo skidded to a halt! So this is what I finally came up with and I’m still not happy with it. (yes, we are our own worst critics!) Here are the measurements of my card:
- Card base in Marina Mist cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Sweet Soiree Specialty DSP cut at 1 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
I used the Petal Palette Bundle and cut out a bunch of the shapes in the silver foil. I ended up using two of the lattice pieces and adhered them to the back of the DSP. I then added a piece of the Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon to it and tied it in a knot. I first stamped the flowers in each corner of the card base in Marina Mist ink, then adhered the DSP strip to the center of the card. Out of all the colors retiring, Marina Mist and Island Indigo will be two that I will miss the most. I stamped the sentiment in Marina Mist ink and cut it out with the banner framelit from the set. I took some Silver Metallic Thread and wound it around my fingers and added it to the back of the banner with some adhesive, added a couple of dimensionals and adhered it to the card. Of course I then added some rhinestones for extra bling. What do you think? I’m still on the fence about it. 😉
Now it’s your turn! Create a project with your take on today’s sample, then post it on our Facebook Group. If you’re not a member of the group yet, that’s ok, just request to join. We’d love to have you play along! I hope you enjoyed today’s project and I thank you for stopping by!
