Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday project! I am so glad you stopped by and if this is your first time here, welcome and be sure to join my email list to catch up on all the scrappy news around here! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group this morning? If not, here’s a look at what we’re casing (copy and share everything) and the sketch:
Isn’t that a cute card? I love Christmas cards in blue, but as you can see, I went a more traditional route this week. I used the Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP for my paper. If you love plaids, this paper is for you! Not only are the plaids gorgeous, but there is some gold embossing throughout the patterns! LOVE it!! Since I wanted the paper to really stand out, I chose not to emboss my card base like the sample shows. Here are the measurements for my card this week:
- Card base in Shaded Spruce cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Wrapped in Plaid Specialty DSP cut at 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
I used the largest stitched circle die which measures at 2 7/16″ in diameter. After I cut my DSP I added my strip of that gorgeous Shaded Spruce/Gold Ribbon. If I tie a bow with my ribbon I will wrap it around the paper, but since I was just tying a knot, I cut a strip just long enough to fit across and taped it to the back and then glued it all to the card base. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink at the bottom of the circle and added it to the card front with dimensionals, and then added the little piece of ribbon to tie a knot all the way to the left. Next I punched a pine tree in Gold Foil Paper to bring out the gold in the ribbon and the plaid and added it to the circle with dimensionals. Of course I need some more bling, so I added some of the pretty Holiday Rhinestones and the front was done!
For the inside I had a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White left over from prepping for my WCMD event, so I added a strip of the DSP cut at 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ to the top of the layer. I stamped the sentiment (also from the Itty Bitty Christmas set) in Shaded Spruce ink, layered it to the inside of the card and I was all done! Easy-peasy! This is one of the cards that can be massed produced very easily!
Isn’t that pretty? I absolutely LOVE these colors! The red color you see in the plaid is Cherry Cobbler, which I think is the perfect Christmas color combo with the Shaded Spruce. Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s sample and share it with us over at the FB Group. Don’t worry if you’re not a member yet, just request to join, we would love to have come over and play along with us!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Tuesday!
