Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I am so glad you’re here and I hope that I can inspire you with my take on today’s case. Have you seen what we’re casing yet? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch with all the measurements:
I must say having the sketches now with all the measurements really help, especially if you are new to the craft or you having mojo issues. I followed the measurements exactly, except I left off the small square. I just couldn’t get it to work with my card without compromising the images. I decided to use the Jar of Love stamp set for today’s card. It’s an older set that we haven’t used in awhile and thought it could use some love, especially since it goes so well with the gingham! For my card I chose to use the Balmy Blue gingham from the Gingham Gala DSP pack and cut it down to fit my Balmy Blue card base. Then I cut the Whisper White layer to 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ like the sketch and stamped my images. I started off by stamping the jar in Balmy Blue ink, then I added the lid and the handle in Gray Granite. I thought that shade looked more like the color of the antique lids. I love, love, love Mason jars, so much that I use them as glassware in my kitchen and even as toothbrush holders in the bathroom. In fact, I’m kind of obsessed with them. 😉 You can imagine how I felt when this set came out. Next I stamped the burlap image in Sahara Sand and then added the fireflies with Tuxedo Black ink. I used Daffodil Delight to stamp the glow spots on them. Next I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch and added it over the burlap image with dimensionals. I adhered this layer to the card front with dimensionals to give it some depth. Next I found a scrap of the Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon that is a Sale-a-bration item. It’s on backorder right now, but should be back in stock soon. I tied the scrap into a bow and added it to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot. Next I pulled out the Gingham Gala Sequins and added two of the yellow ones on my sentiment label. Then I added some more to the fireflies to help them “glow”. I love how this card turned out, how about you?
