Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time in my neck of the woods, welcome and please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this morning to see what we are casing (copy and share everything)? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:
Isn’t that a nice card? Pretty traditional in color scheme, so I needed to change it up some. I followed the sketch for all of my measurements, which makes creating super easy; my kjnd of card!
I just love the Christmas lights in this sheet of DSP from the Sweet Stockings pack, so I had to use it. One of the best parts of playing with Stampin’ Up! products is all the coordination between all of the products. You know that if you choose a certain color option, in this case Pool Party cardstock, that my ribbons and Designer Series Paper (aka pattern paper) all go together perfectly! So I pulled out a Pool Party card base from my stash and the two scraps of DSP from the pack. I trimmed the plaid piece to the measurements and attached it to the card front. I then trimmed my lights piece to the measurements and attached it to the card front. Next I pulled a strip of Basic White from my stash and stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink. This is the perfect way to use up all those left over strips you know you hang on to! 😉 I attached it on my card base so that the sentiment was to the right, leaving room for my bow, then trimmed the edges flush with the card base. Next I tied a small bow in the coordinating striped ribbon and added it to the card front with a Mini Glue Dot. And of course I had to add plenty of bling since those are Christmas lights. (not that I need an excuse for bling mind you!! lol)
For the inside of the card, I trimmed a piece of the DSP to 1/2″ x 5″ to attach to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ scrap of Basic White. I stamped a sentiment from the Holly Jolly stamp set in Cherry Cobbler ink and then attached it to the inside of the card. I thought this sentiment was perfect for the Christmas lights!
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I used some more of that adorable paper to decorate the flap. I think it just ties everything together! Isn’t that cute?
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the CT FB Group. You can create it exactly like the sample or change it up a little or a lot; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing – it’s your take on it! And if you aren’t a member of the group yet, not a problem. Just request to join; we would love to have you come over and play along.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great rest of your Tuesday!
