Welcome to another CASE-ing Tuesday! Hard to believe this is number 175 already! Have you been over to the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group yet to see what we’re casing? If not, here is a look at it:
Isn’t that a cute card? I love how the designer used the Embossing Paste to create the snow on the house top! I don’t have this set, but I think you’ll like what I’ve created. Here are the measurements to my card:
- Card base in Shaded Spruce cardstock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Tropical Chic DSP cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and 1 1/2″ x 4″ and ends flagged
Since my Product of the Week is the So Santa stamp set, I knew I had to incorporate it some how. Then when I saw today’s sample, I knew exactly what I was going to do! I chose the Santa with the surfboard image and went with the whole tropical theme. I cut a piece of Whisper White with the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes Framelits. Then I inked the image in Versa Mark and then Early Espresso ink and stamped the image. I added some clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then I took a drop of Crumb Cake reinker and mixed it with some of the Embossing Paste to create the sand and added it to image. Here’s a close up so you can see just how cute it turned out:
Doesn’t that look like sand? It doesn’t take much reinker to color it either. I then stamped the sentiment on the DSP in Versa Mark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder and adhered it to the card front. I flagged the ends of the DSP strip and added it to the card front. Next I added a piece of the Blushing Bride Shimmer Ribbon with Mini Glue Dots.Then I stamped the leaf in Shaded Spruce ink and the flower in Blushing Bride and cut them out. I also cut out a palm frond in Lemon Lime Twist. I used Mini Glue Dots to attach them to the circle and then adhered it all with dimensionals to card front.
So what do you think? I love it!! It is the perfect tropical Christmas card! Now it’s your turn. Create your take on today’s case and share it with us over on the Facebook Group.
