Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well.If this is your first time in my little corner of the worl, 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 cute card? And I love that we have sketches with all the measurements listed; it really helps when you’re in a hurry or especially new to creating cards. Here’s a look at my take on this week’s sample:
I realized as I was getting ready to create this post that I used the same color of cardstock for my card base as last week – oops! lol Guess I really am in the mood for fall! This card is made with all scraps. In fact, the base is actually the other half of last week’s piece of cardstock. My card layers are the same measurements as the sketch, except for the sentiment layer. It measures 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ and is die cut with one of the dies in the bundle. I used the gorgeous Beauty of the Earth DSP for my two base layers. I trimmed the 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of blue and then I trimmed the 2″ x 4″ green piece and using my snips, I trimmed it to look like a rolling hillside. I attached the two pieces together and then to the card base with Seal Adhesive. The tree base and DSP die cut were left from another project so all I had to do was die cut a scrap of Old Olive cardstock to create the tree top layer. I used Tombow Liquid glue to attach the tree trunk the card base and the “leaves” image to the tree top layer. I then added it to the card with dimensioanls. I realized I forgot to stamp the little ground layer image, so I added it in Old Olive ink right over the base of the tree trunk. After I die cut the sentiment label, I stamped the sentiment in Cider Cinnamon ink and attached it with dimensionals. I realized it looked rather plain, so I die cut one of the birds from the set from a scrap of Cider Cinnamon cardstock. I used a dauber to add some ink to the edges and the Stampin’ Write Marker to create the eye. I attached him with a mini dimensional and added two Champagne Rhinestones for my bling.
For the inside, I trimmed a scrap of Basic White cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Cider Cinnamon ink.
Then I decorated the envelope with some more of that gorgeous paper. No naked envelopes!!
Doesn’t that just complete the whole project? And think how happy the recipient is going to be to see such a beautiful envelope!! Now it’s your turn! Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the FB Group. You can create it just 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 the sample! And if you’re not a member of our 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 today. I hope you get a chance to inky today!
