Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I know I’ve been missing them with the crazy schedule in the studio the last two weeks, so I am very glad to be back! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time here, welcome! 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 a pretty card? I decided it was time to pull out the Kindest Gnomes for my take.
I just love that little guy!!! I followed the measurements from the sketch for my take, but for whatever reason, the Basic White layer looked off, so I trimmed it to 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″. I also trimmed my DSP layer to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ because I wanted my Night of Navy card base to show through. The best part of my card is I used all scraps for it! LOVE it when that happens! I used Night of Navy, Basic White, Petal Pink and Soft Suede scraps to die cut my little gnome. I cut the legs twice, once in Night of Navy and once in Soft Suede. I trimmed the feet off the Night of Navy cut and glued it on the Soft Suede layer to make it look like he had on pants and shoes. I used my Light Smoky Slate Blend marker to color in the embossed lines in his beard. The vellum, white and Balmy Blue layers are attached together and added to the card front with Stampin’ Seal adhesive. The gnome and the sentiment label (stamped in Night of Navy ink) are added with dimensionals.
For the inside, I stamped the gnome (my favorite in the set) in Memento ink and colored with the Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Petal Pink, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede and Real Red Stampin’ Blends, our alcohol ink markers. The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy ink and then the 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Basic White is attached with more Stampin’ Seal.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I added another piece of that beautiful DSP with Stampin’ Seal to the envelope flap and trimmed it with my snips. I just love how it ties it all together!
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 just like the sample or change it up; it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing – you get to put your style in your creation.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of your week!
