Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this morning to see what we’re casing? If you haven’t, here’s the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that card cute? It’s actually created using one of our little note cards, but I changed it up a bit and created a full size card. Here are my measurements:
- Card base in Basic Black cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Balmy Blue cardstock cut at 3 1/2″ x 5″
- Botanical Butterfly DSP cut in 5 strips of 3 1/4″ x 3/4″
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 2 1/8″ x 1/2″
I actually used a leftover packet from a previous class for the supplies for today’s card and just added a scrap of Balmy Blue cardstock and trimmed the DSP to match the measurements in the sketch. I adhered the strips to the Balmy Blue with Snail adhesive. I grabbed some leftover Basic Black Baker’s Twine from my last card class and added it to the card front with a few strips of Snail. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Tuxedo Black ink and snipped the ends to create a flag like in the picture of the sample, then added a small strip of dimensional to adhere it over the twine. I use every little piece of those dimensionals! I know this bundle (stamp set and punch) are not available at the moment, but when they come back in stock, make sure you get yours. I punched a small butterfly in both Vellum cardstock and Daffodil Delight cardstock and added a drop of glue from the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere them together. I snipped a tiny piece of dimensional to add the butterfly to the card base. My latest obsession is coloring our rhinestones to match my project, so I colored some with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker. We carried black rhinestones a couple of years ago and I was so bummed when they were discontinued…but not any more!! 🙂 So I added them to the card and the butterfly and voila! My take on today’s case!
