Hello everyone. Let’s try this again. Apparently my original blog post got lost, so we are recreating it! If you haven’t been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet this week to see what we are casing (copy and share everything), here is a look at this week’s sample and sketch:
Isn’t that a cute card? I chose to change things up a little on mine; I changed it to a profile layout.
I did follow all of the measurements for my card. I started with a Pacific Point card base and chose my DSP to coordinate. I trimmed the pieces and attached them with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. I then stamped the leaves image on the Basic White layer in Pacific Point ink. I stamped the splotches in Gray Granite ink, stamping off first. I added the layer to the card with dimensionals. I trimmed a scrap of Gray Granite cardstock to the measurements for the sentiment layer. Now the sentiments in this stamp set don’t fit that particular size label, but this is where our Stampin’ Write Markers come in handy! I took the sentiment that actually says “Best Wishes & Happy Thoughts” and used the Pacific Point marker to stamp my sentiment to fit. I changed it up so that the “Happy Thoughts” fits my label. To stamp with these markers, you use the brush end to color the section of the stamp you want to use, then “huff” on it to moisten the ink and stamp. This works really well when you want to stamp something in multiple colors. After I stamped the label, I added it to the card front with dimensionals. I had a leftover white Baker’s Twine bow sitting on my desk, so I added it with a Mini Glue Dot. Then I added some rhinestones for my bling.
For the inside, I trimmed a scrap of Basic White to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and a piece of the DSP to 1/2″ x 5″ and attached them with Stampin’ Seal together and then to the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment using the marker method again.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I added some more of that gorgeous DSP to my envelope flap to tie it all together. This is definitely my favorite way to decorate my envelopes and you get to actually use up your paper!!
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 exactly like the sample or change it up like I did; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing – there are no rules and you create it with your style!
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
