Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! If this is your first time here, thank you for stopping by my little neck of the woods and please be sure to join my email list for all the scrappy news around here. Can you believe it’s the first day of September already??? Yikes! But that means all of the “ber” months are upon us!! lol So have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet today? Not even sure what that is? Well we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that case (copy and share everything) a card out of one of the Stampin’ Up! catalogs each week and we encourage everyone to join us! Here is a look at the card we are casing this week along with the sketch:
Today is the first card we are casing from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalog. Isn’t that a cute card? I only have the paper from that suite of product, so I went a different route.
I chose the new Poinsettia Petals bundle for my card. I did follow the sketch measurements for my card, but as you can see, instead of the rectangle image, l chose that beautiful poinsettia for my focal point. The bundle has a stamp images that coordinate with the solid die, but I chose to use the piece that embosses each petal or leaf while you cut it. And the Designer Series Paper (aka pattern paper) that goes with this suite of product is gorgeous!! Since I wanted the die cut flower to be the focal point, I wanted something subtle for the background layer and the wood grain fit the bill. I cut it to the measurement and glued it down to a Soft Suede card base. Then I cut the three layers of the flower in Real Red cardstock, the center in Very Vanilla and the leaves in Shaded Spruce. After I glued them together using Mini Glue Dots, I added Wink of Stella to everything. Next I cut out 3 of the sprigs in Vellum cardstock and attached them to the back of the flower with more Mini Glue Dots. I then added the entire die cut to the card front with dimensionals. Next I created my tag. I stamped the pine bough in Shaded Spruce ink, stamped it off twice and then stamped it on a scrap of Very Vanilla and then added the sentiment in Soft Suede ink and punched it out with the Timeless Label punch. I wanted to keep my card rustic looking, so for the ribbon I choose the Braided Linen Trim. I added some Stampin’ Seal adhesive to the back of the label and attached the trim in a zig zag and then added it all to the card front with dimensionals. For my bling, I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the center of the flower.
Isn’t that poinsettia beautiful? I love how 3-D it looks with the embossing on the petals. And that Wink of Stella is the perfect accent! For the inside I stamped the berries in Shaded Spruce and Real Red inks, stamping off first and then added the sentiment in Soft Suede ink. My Very Vanilla layer measures 3 3/4″ x 5″ which is the perfect size when signing a Christmas card!
