Hey everyone! Happy Thursday!!! I hope your week is going well. So you know how I love casing, right? Today’s project is a card I cased (copy and share everything) from a swap I participated in last week on a trip to St. George, UT with 80 other Incentive Trip Achievers. It was soooooo much fun!! I showed some of the swap cards on today’s Facebook Live. If you didn’t catch the live, you can watch the replay over on my YouTube Channel. While you’re there, I would love it if you would give my video a thumbs up and also if you’re not a subscriber, I would be honored if you subscribed.
Here are the measurements for my card:
- Card base in Sweet Sorbet cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Basic Black cardstock 2 cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic White cardstock 2 cut at 3 3/4″ x 5″
- 2022-2024 In Color DSP cut at 2″ x 3 3/4″
- 2022-2024 In Color Glimmer Paper cut at 1/2″ x 3 3/4″
I love the look of red, black and white and when I saw the card from fellow demonstrator, Jeannette Swain, I knew I had to put my spin on it. Here’s a look at her card:
Isn’t that cute??? And that gingham ribbon just makes it!!! As you can see, I changed mine up a bit. The best part, every piece I used for my card was a scrap!! Way to use those up, right?!? I started by die cutting the circle out of a scrap of Basic White using one of the stitched circles from the Stylish Shapes Dies and a scalloped circle in Basic Black using one of the Layering Circles Dies. I love that they coordinate in size! I attached the two with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive and set it aside. I then attached my DSP and Glimmer Paper to the Basic White layer with Stampin’ Seal. I wanted a little something to it, so I took out a Sponge Dauber and sponged on some of the Sweet Sorbet ink around the edges of the DSP. I added a piece of the gingham ribbon over the Glimmer Paper and then added it to the Basic Black layer. I laid the scalloped circle over the layers to judge where to stamp my sentiment, and then stamped it in Memento ink. I then attached the layer to the Basic Black layer and then both to the card front. I then attached the scalloped circle with dimensionals over the ribbon. On another scrap of Basic White, I stamped the cherry in Sweet Sorbet ink, the stem in Garden Green and the leaf in stamped off Garden Green ink. Before I punched out the leaf, I stamped the veining in Garden Green ink. Once it was all punched out, I assembled it with a little bit of Multipurpose Glue. Once dried, I added the cherry to the circle with dimensionals. I then tied a bow in the gingham ribbon and added it with a Mini Glue Dot. For my bling, cuz you know I have to add bling, I added 3 of the Iridescent Pearls. They are so pretty and pick up the red color really well. And don’t you like the polka dot paper with the gingham ribbon? So country/farmhouse-ish!
For the inside, I stamped the cherry again just like the one I punched out, down in the corner of the Basic White layer and then the sentiment in Memento Black ink. I attached it to the black and then both to the inside. Normally I just add white to the inside, but I thought it looked a little plain; I think the black makes it pop.
And don’t forget to decorate your envelope – no naked envelopes!!! I repeated the cherry to tie it all together.
Isn’t that a fun card? I love the large sentiment on the inside. And there’s still plenty of room to write a message on the inside too. Now, if this bundle is on your wish list, now is the time to get it!! When you place and order using Host Code 3YUB2KMN and your order is $40.00 or more, I will send you a project packet to create this card plus an embellishment; but you must use the host code.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great rest of your day!
