Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! If you haven’t been by in awhile, we now have sketches that you can follow! How cool is that? I absolutely love sketches because it takes out half of my work in designing. And for a new stamper, it makes it even easier to create something when you have all the measurements to follow. So if you haven’t seen today’s case over at the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group, here’s what we’re casing and the sketch:
I followed the measurements for the card base and layers, but changed up the circle to ovals to accommodate the lily. I love the new Sale-a-bration stamp set Lasting Lily! Don’t get me wrong, I really, really love that frog too from the Hoppy Together set, but I needed to create a sympathy card and the lily is the perfect image to use on it. Not to mention, we all tend to struggle with sympathy cards, so if I can help someone create one, all the better!
The lilies in this set are part of our new distinktive style of stamps, they make the image look more 3-D by adding layers with only one stamp. I stamped the lily in Highland Heather and the stem in Pear Pizzazz, then cut it out with one of the larger ovals from the Layering Ovals Framelits set. Then I stamped the sentiment, also in Highland Heather and cut it out with another smaller oval. I used Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the 2 x 4 layer and embossed it with the Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I thought that was perfect for a sympathy card. I adhered that to the piece of Gingham Gala DSP, then both to the card front. I used a piece of the new Whisper White 5/8″ Flax Ribbon and adhered it down with a piece of Tear & Tape which works better then Mini Glue Dots. I added dimensionals to both ovals and and then adhered them to the card front, then added the two little pearls to the sentiment. I really love the softness to this card and hope the recipients feel some comfort too. Here’s a look at the inside:
The inside layers are measured at:
- Whisper White cardstock cut at 3″ x 4″
- Gingham Gala DSP cut at 1/2″ x 4″
