Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday! Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday project!! I hope your week is going well and if this is your first time here, please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all my scrappy news. Have you had a chance to visit 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 card beautiful? I haven’t had a chance to play with the Blessings of Home bundle much, so I decided to use it for my take on the sample.
As you can tell, my take is pretty close to the sample. I followed the sketch for my measurements pretty closely. I started with a Smoky Slate card base and chose the medallion piece of DSP from the Heart & Home DSP pack. When I trimmed my layer, I was sure I saw 5 1/4″ for the length, but alas, it was 5 1/2″ in length. I didn’t see that until my card was finished, so I just went with it. Next I added the 2 1/2″ x 4″ piece of DSP to the top, which is actually the back side of the medallion layer. This pack of paper is so pretty! It has the colored prints on one side and the backs are some sort of wood grain in Basic Gray ink on white. Sooooo pretty! Next I pulled out my stamp and found that I had the floral image already stamped, colored and die cut already done. I had created this image back at the virtual OnStage and never did anything with it. Score!! I had stamped the image in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I colored it using my Watercolor pencils and then blended it all with a Wink of Stella. That creates bling on bling!! I didn’t have any of the doilies from the suite, so I pulled out one of my Square Doilies and colored the back with my Light Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Marker (our version of alcohol markers). I thought it turned out really pretty! For my sentiment layer, I took a scrap of Basic White cardstock and trimmed it to the 5 1/4″ length and stamped the edge with the sentiment in Misty Moonlight ink. I attached it to the DSP with Stampin’ Seal and then trimmed the layers to the 3″ in width. I attached all three of these layers to the card front with more Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. Next I cut a piece of the White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon and folded it in half. I tied a bow around the top with a piece of Black Baker’s Twine and then secure it to the card front with some Tear & Tape. I also used a piece of the Tear & Tape to glue the top piece of the ribbon to the bottom so it wouldn’t flail around. I attached the doily to the ribbon with some more Tear & Tape and then added the die cut over the doily with dimensionals. And for my bling, I added some of the new Classic Matte Dots.
For the inside, I cut a piece of Basic White to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and stamped the larger floral image in Misty Moonlight ink, stamping off several times so that it was very light. I stamped the sentiment from the same set, also in Misty Moonlight.
Now don’t forget to decorate your envelope! You could add some of that gorgeous DSP to the flap, but this time I chose to stamp the large floral image in Misty Moonlight ink on the front. Really ties it in with the card.
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. You can create it exactly like the sample or change it up. The fun part of casing is you get to create it the way you want to!
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire today. If there’s anything I’ve shown you that you would like to add to your collection, I would be honored if you chose me as your demonstrator and shopped with me. You can head over to my online store here to take a look at all the fun products. I hope you have a great rest of your week!
