Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! If this is your first time here, please be sure to join my email list. Once you’ve joined, be sure to check your spam folders as sometimes my emails go there instead of your inbox. If you noticed I haven’t been around for awhile, not only did I take time for Thanksgiving, but both my hubby and I caught colds, so I’ve been taking some self-care time so it wouldn’t go into bronchitis. So now I’m behind and trying to catch up!! lol Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet today to see what we’re casing? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch for this week:
Isn’t that a cute card? I love all the watercoloring the designer did for the background! I didn’t have time for watercoloring when I created my card, so I chose a paper that had a watercolor wash look to it from the Let It Snow Specialty DSP, which coordinates with the bundle I chose, the Snowman Season. Did you know that the punch actually coordinates with the paper? Yep! The snowman in the middle of my card was punched from one of the sheets. The other two I fussy cut out . That’s one of the great things about Stampin’ Up! products, they coordinate so well it makes your designing a snap when you’re in a hurry! All of the measurements for my card are the same as in the sketch too, which is another bonus! I didn’t have to think about it, just chose my papers and cut them to size.
I went with Pool Party cardstock for the card base and both of my pattern papers are from the same DSP pack. I went with a strip of Shaded Spruce cardstock for the sentiment layer. I stamped the greeting in Versa Mark and then heat embossed some White Embossing Powder. Then I wrapped the end with a scrap piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine and added a bow that was leftover from another project with a Mini Glue Dot. And this is why I keep all those scraps! 🙂 Next I glued the 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the card base. I glued the two smaller snowmen straight to the DSP layer and then added the third with dimensionals. Since he was just a plain glittered snowman (not that glitter is plain by any standards!), I added two of the felt embellishments from the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit. Then I glued the two sentiment layers to the card. I added some of our Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card and called it done! It really did go together rather quickly.
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on today’s sample and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. You can create it just as the sample, or change it up a little or a lot; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing, there are no limitations! If you aren’t a part of the group yet, just request to join, we would love to have you come over and play along. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope your Tuesday is a terrific one!
