Happy New Year and welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday!! And with the new year we also have something new over at the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group! Now when we showcase our sample to be crafted, we are going to include a sketch of that card with all the measurements. How cool is that? I love crafting with sketches, it takes all the hard work of creating out of the equation. So, here is what we’re casing today:
And here is the sketch with all the measurements for you:
Doesn’t that make it even easier to case the sample? Now don’t let that stop you from really changing it up, this just makes it easier for people who are new to the craft or maybe just want to craft and not want to hassle with designing. The measurements on my card are all the same except I added a layer behind the 1 1/2″ squares. It’s in Gorgeous Grape and they measure 1 5/8″ x 1 5/8″.
I decided to give you a sneak peek of one of the upcoming Sale-a-bration stamp sets, the Hello Cupcake set. Such a cute stamp set and it’s one you’ll be able to get for free when you place a $50.00 or more order starting on January 3rd. And it is the perfect birthday set! We all need those birthday cards!! I also decided to stick with the sketch, but since I don’t have the stamp set that outlines the squares, I went with another layer of cardstock. See? It still accomplishes the look of the card! Since the sample had two different shades of green, I too chose two coordinating shades using Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather. I love those two colors of purple!! I stamped each of the images, one in Highland Heather, and the other two in Gorgeous Grape, then adhered them to the Gorgeous Grape layers. I stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the Highland Heather layer, adhered it to the card front, then added the image layers. Just to be a little different, I had to add my bling, so I added two rhinestones at the bottom. Can’t be one of my cards without bling!! lol
Now it’s your turn! Create your take on today’s sample and share it with us over at the Facebook Group. You can choose to use the sketch or not, it’s all up to you!! If you aren’t a member of the group yet, that’s okay, just request to join, we’d love to have play along with us. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a very happy New Year’s Day!!
