Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! I hope your week is going well. If this is your first time visiting my little blog, welcome and please be sure to join my email list to keep up on all the scrappy news around here. 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 this week’s sample and sketch:
Isn’t that an adorable card? I decided to change mine up a little bit.
When I start my design, I usually start with picking a stamp set. This week I started with my DSP. I pulled out my pack of Delightfully Eclectic pack and chose this pattern. Then I headed to my cardstock shelf and found a card base already cut in Night of Navy that measured 4 1/4″ x 11″, so I pulled it out. I should make note that all of the pieces used in this card were scraps or trimmed from scraps. I love when I can do that!! So, when I started to add my DSP to the card base, I thought it just looked too monochromatic, so I trimmed it down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and layered it onto a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Basic White. I then attached it to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. Now if you have visited my blog before, you know that one of my very favorite color combos is yellow and blue – so of course I went to my Lemon Lolly scraps folder for one of the layers. When I saw this week’s sketch, I knew I wanted to use the new Nested Essentials dies. I die cut the Lemon Lolly and a scrap of Basic White, attached them together with Seal and trimmed off the right edge at 4″ to meet one of the measurements from the sketch. I stamped my sentiment from the Charming Sentiments stamp set in Night of Navy ink and added the piece of Night of Navy ribbon and tied it in a bow. I attached the layer to the card with Stampin’ Seal. I added 3 of the Starry Sky In Color Pearls for bling and called the front done.
For the inside, my layers measure 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the Lemon Lolly, 3 3/4″ x 5″ for the Basic White layer and 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ for the DSP. I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and assembled my layers.
And then I added another piece of that pretty DSP to the envelope flap.
So what do you think? I just love that plaid pattern and the fact that it’s in Night of Navy – bonus! Now it’s your turn. Create your take on this week’s sample or sketch and share it with us over at the CT Facebook Group. You can create it exactly like the sample or change it up. You can change it up a little or a lot – it’s all up to you! That’s the fun part of casing; you get to make it your way.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great rest of your week!
