Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time stopping by my little piece of the globe, I am so happy you are here and would love it if you joined my email list here to keep up on all the scrappy news in my world. So 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:
I just love that fat cat! But since the Share a Milkshake bundle was sitting on my desk, I decided to use it. As you can see, I changed up my take quite a bit.
The fun part of my card this is I created it from all scraps, except for the DSP. I started with a Thick Basic White card base and added a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the Country Gingham DSP. I trimmed a scrap of Basic White to the 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ measurements. When I chose the ice cream sundae for my image, I decided to change the orientation to a landscape card. I stamped my ice cream in Mint Macaron (mint chocolate chip is my favorite ice cream!) on a scrap of white and then I die cut all of my pieces from scraps. I used Sweet Sorbet for the cherry, Basic White for the whipped cream and ice cream, Early Espresso for the hot fudge, Pool Party for the dish and silver foil for the spoon. I then glued everything together using some Multipurpose Glue. I added it to the white layer with dimensionals and the spoon I tucked under the ice cream and attached it with a Mini Dimensionals. I had so much white space on the right I decided against the sentiment layer and just stamped my sentiment on the layer in Early Espresso ink. So that the dish wasn’t sitting in mid air, I grabbed my Light Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Marker and just added it around the base of the dish. I then attached the white layer to a 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ piece of Early Espresso with Stampin’ Seal and then to the card base. I found my Festive Pearls and added three of them in red for my bling.
For the inside, I stamped my sentiment in Early Espresso ink. I was going to add some die cut hearts in Sweet Sorbet cardstock to the front, but I just didn’t like the way they looked. Once I stamped the sentiment, I added two of the hearts and a 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ strip of the DSP at the bottom.
For the envelope I added some more of the DSP and the last heart. A little different then my usual envelope flap, but I like the way it turned out.
Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s card and share it with us over on the CT Facebook Group. You can create it just like the sample or change it up a little or a lot. That’s the fun part of casing – you get to make it your way!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I was able to inspire you today. If there is anything I’ve shown you today that you just can’t live without, I would love it if you shopped with me. You can head over to my online store here to shop. I hope you have a great last week of March and I will catch you later!
