Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I LOVE Tuesdays, how about you? Monday’s are always hard for everyone, but Tuesdays are the best! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet? If not, here’s a look at today’s sample:
It’s hard to tell in the sample in the catalog, but the designer actually uses a card from the Perfect Days Memories & More card pack, which is exactly what I did for my card today. I love how quick and easy it is to create a card using the card packs, so it was a no-brainer using them for this project. Here are the measurements:
- Card base in Dapper Denim cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
- Memories & More 4″ x 3″ card
I saw that the sample was done using Dapper Denim, so I immediately knew I had to use Lemon Lime Twist with it. That is definitely one of my favorite color combinations and I am going to miss Dapper Denim after it retires. Since I chose a patterned card from the pack, I wanted to use a solid behind it and chose Whisper White. I used the stamp that was used in the sample from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and stamped it in Dapper Denim ink. I adhered them down at angles like in the sample, but went with a horizontal layout. I did swipe on some Wink of Stella, but you definitely need to be careful and be sure the ink is dry before you add it. It did smear the blue a little, but not bad. I stamped the thank you sentiment from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and punched it out with the Classic Label punch. Isn’t that font adorable? It goes so well with the flowers! I trimmed one end of the label, added a couple of Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, and added it to the bottom of the card. I grabbed some of the Denim Dapper Baker’s Twine and tied a double bow and adhered it with a Mini Glue Dot. I then sprinkled on some rhinestones and called it done. Don’t you love how everything coordinates?
