Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! Don’t you just love Tuesdays? They are so much easier then Mondays, but not only that, I get to play along with some of my favorite fellow demonstrators over at the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group. If you haven’t been to the group in awhile, we now have sketches to go along with our samples to be cased. I LOVE sketches!! It makes it so much easier to case a card since you have all the measurements right there! Here’s what we are casing today and the sketch for it:
The papers and cardstock I used are Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Wood Textures DSP, Whisper White and Old Olive. The only measurement that is different on my card is the circle. I used a 1 1/4″ circle punch since my sentiment was so small. I didn’t have either of these stamp sets and since I had never used my Country Road stamp set, I thought it would go perfectly for this case. I used the Buffalo Check stamp for my background and stamped it in Crumb Cake ink on the Crumb Cake cardstock. I love tone on tone which is one of the best ways to stamp this background. I am so glad that this set is carrying forward!! Next I stamped my other images. I used Old Olive for the grass, which I stamped off first so that it was a lighter image. Then I used Early Espresso for the wagon wheel as it is one of the coordinating colors in the designer series paper. After the images were stamped, I adhered all the layers together. For the larger ribbon I used a piece of the Burlap Ribbon and adhered it on the back of the layers, then adhered it all to the card front. The happy birthday sentiment stamp is in one straight line and since it wouldn’t fit in a circle, I stamped it by masking the words and stamping. The easiest way to do that is using household tape. Cover up one word, ink the stamp, remove the tape, stamp it, and then repeat for the second word. You can align things any way you want by doing this and it’s super easy! Then I punched it out with the circle punch. Next I punched out two of the sprigs in Old Olive. I thought the sprigs matched the grass in the stamped image pretty good, what do you think? I added them to the back of the circle with a couple of Mini Glue Dots. Then I took a piece of the 1/4″ Copper Trim and pulled it apart like the ribbon in the case and added it to the back of the circle more Mini Glue Dots. Then I added a couple of dimensionals and added it to the card front. I love how it turned out and it’s the perfect masculine birthday card!
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s case and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. The best part is you can copy it exactly as is or change it up a little or a lot, it’s all up to you! If you aren’t a member of the group yet, that’s okay, just request to join; we would love to have you play along. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday.
