Happy Tuesday and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday project. I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend! 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 cute card? And it’s a square card!! I haven’t made a square card in a very long time! The nice part about this card is it still fits in one of our Medium Envelopes so you don’t have to spend extra on postage. And these days we need to save our pennies wherever we can, right? So since we just celebrated the 4th yesterday, I thought it would be fun to commemorate it, especially since the new pack of Host Paper from the new July-December Mini Catalog, Celebrate Everything, has some fireworks paper in it.
I followed all of the measurements in the sketch for my card. I used Pacific Point cardstock for my card base. I had a scrap Poppy Parade cardstock for the second layer, so I took the stars image from the Bewitching stamp set, also from the new Mini Catalog, and stamped it randomly in Poppy Parade ink. I added the piece of DSP and then added the layer to the card front with dimensionals. I then took the sentiment from the new Very Best Occasions stamp set and stamped it in Pacific Point ink and then added more stars in Poppy Parade ink. I punched it out with the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch. I had a piece of the 2022-2024 In Color Baker’s Twine in Starry Sky, so I added some adhesive to the back of the punched layer and added it to the back. I wrapped it around my fingers, pinched in the middle and pushed it in the adhesive. I think it looks like a really big bow. There was also a leftover bow in the same twine, so I added it to the front with a Mini Glue Dot. I added it to the card front with dimensionals and then sprinkled on a bunch of rhinestones. I figured with fireworks as the print I really needed it to pop!
For the inside, I added a scrap of Poppy Parade ink that I trimmed to 4″ x 4″ and added a piece of 3/34″ x 3 3/4″ Basic White. I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments in Pacific Point ink and more stars in Poppy Parade ink.
I took what was left of the strip of DSP and added it to the envelope flap. I then trimmed the flap at the bottom. I would much rather cover the entire flap, but I this time I wanted to just use what was trimmed.
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample and share it with us over at the CT Facebook 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; you get to create it the way you want.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you with my project. Have a great rest of your week and please, take time to get inky!!
