Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time here, welcome and please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news in my neck of the woods. Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group to see what we’re casing (copy and share everything) this week? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that a cute card? I love the Snowflake Wishes Bundle, which is what they used in the sample, so I just had to use it again for this week’s post.
Here are the measurements for my card:
- Card base in Highland Heather cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Snowflake Splendor DSP cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ for the inside
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the inside
As you can see, I changed up the look of the card by creating it in a landscape style card, but I kept all of the measurements the same as in the sketch. I loved that the sample is a shaker card and it gave me a chance to create one as well using a new method I learned from fellow demonstrator, Rosie Gonzalez. It makes it so much easier to create a shaker card! And all of the elements to my card are scraps leftover from other projects. Love when I can do this!! I grabbed my DSP pack and chose the pattern I wanted to use and trimmed a piece to the measurements in the sketch. Next, I grabbed one of our clear envelopes which have an adhesive flap and inserted my piece of DSP. Next I liberally sprinkled in some of the Snowflake Sequins. Before I adhered the flap, I made sure that my DSP was snug in the envelope. Now because the size of the DSP is smaller then the envelope, you need to secure the envelope around the DSP so that it doesn’t flop around in the envelope and also fits on the card front. Once it was snug in the envelope, I close it up and then added a piece of Tear and Tape adhesive to the back of the long side and then folded over the excess of the envelope. I then added more Tear and Tape to attach the whole thing to the card front. Next I cut the label out of a scrap of Highland Heather cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and attached it to the card front with dimensionals. I stamped one of the larger snowflake images in Gorgeous Grape, stamped off twice, and then cut it out with the coordinating die. I then cut several other snowflakes from a scrap of Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper and a scrap of Thick Whisper White. The Whisper White I colored with some Wink of Stella to give it some shimmer, I then layered them together with Mini Glue Dots and attached them to the label. To finishe them off, I added a couple of the Blue Adhesive Back Gems.
I think if I make another of these cards, I will use a piece of Purple Posy for the label since it’s lighter. What do you think? For the inside, I found a scrap of Whisper White and stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape again, and then added the small strip of DSP to the top and glued it to the inside of the card. I had one snowflake left over, so I added it with a Mini Glue Dot.
And don’t forget the envelope! We don’t want to send out naked envelopes!!! lol I glued on a piece of the same DSP and trimmed it to fit.
I love to coordinate the envelopes with the cards. It just finishes it all off so nicely! Now it’s your turn! Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us on the FB Group. You can create it just like the sample or change it up. You can change it up a little or a lot, it’s all up to you! That’s what is so great about casing – it’s all up to you!! If you aren’t a member of the group yet, no worries; just request to join. We would love to have you come and play along with us!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day and have a chance to play along with us!
