Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday and Happy August! 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! So have you had a chance to visit the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group this morning? If not, here’s a look at the sample and the sketch:

Isn’t that a cute card? Especially since it’s a fall card!!! Yes, I know, it’s still summer….lol But that’s okay, only about a month and a half to go!! woo hoo!! So here’s a look at my card:

The sketch shows this week’s sample to be a note-sized card, but I created a regular A2 card. I started with an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock and scored it at 4 1/4″ to create my card base. I trimmed a piece of the Inked Botanicals DP and cut it in half at 3″ x 6″. I then marked a little tic mark at 4 3/4″ and die cut the end with one of the Basic Border Dies. I added that to the card front with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive. Next I stamped the bird and the branch in Memento ink and colored them with my Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon and Pecan Pie Stampin’ Blends. The beak is colored with a touch of the Wild Wheat Stampin’ Blends. I then stamped the glasses in Pretty Peacock ink. I still have the retired 2 1/2″ circle punch, so I punched out my images and added the circle with dimensionals. Next I cut the sentiment strip from a Pretty Peacock scrap. I stamped the sentiment from the Sweet Songbirds stamp set in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I then added the strip with dimensionals and added 3 of the Pretty Peacock sequins from the Adhesive Backed Trio pack. I had a tiny bow in white baker’s twine, so I thought it would fit perfectly on the bird.

For the inside, I stamped the leaves from the Bird’s Eye View stamp set in Memento ink (the ink you want to use when coloring with alcohol markers) and colored them with the Lost Lagoon Blends. I then stamped my sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink.

And don’t forget to decorate your envelope! I trimmed off a portion of what was left from the sheet and added it to the flap.

Doesn’t that just complete the package? 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. 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. If there’s something I used today that you would like to add to your collection, I would love it if you shopped with me. Just head over to my online store here. I hope you have a great week and take time for yourself to play!
