Anything Goes - C.A.S.E A Card Friday #23-2016

Today's C.A.S.E A Card Challenge:

I found some patterned paper that I thought would work for this CASE card. It’s from the 6x6 paper pack Hey Girl from Basic Grey. The colours and small repeated patterned were similar to the CASE card.  I also used a darker gray background and lighter grey for the tag, cut with Stampin’ Up’s Ornate Tag Topper. The sentiment is from Simon Says STAMP Lots of Love stamp set. I matted the sentiment with a red scallop to make it pop. I wrapped jute twine twice around the card and also used it to make the bow for the tag. ~ Sue 

Love card sketches and CASE challenges because you can make cards quickly!  For this challenge,  I used a Bo Bunny Madeleine  Collection  paper pad so everything  would coordinate  except the tag.  I die cut the sentiment ,  added some twine, a few black rhinestones  and mounted the card front  on a gray card base. ~ Gracie  


Every holiday my Brother and Sister-in-Law are hosts to anyone who wishes to come for's always a wonderful day and the dinners are scrumptious!  So I made this card knowing I would need a thank you for yet another holiday dinner, thinking Thanksgiving in this case.  Now it'll make sense why I'm making an Autumn card in June.  Now to the card.  I used a Samantha Walker cut file purchased in the Silhouette store to make this card.  I paired Stampin' Up's Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze card stocks which work so well together for a fall card.  The cut file has partial cut lines for each leaf on the panel, so you pull the edges up to allow the Crumb Cake to peek through.  I wrapped the panel three times with Linen Thread (SU) before attaching it to the card base with pop dots.  I tied on the tag, embellished with a larger leaf, with the same linen thread.  I sponged the edges of the card and tag with Cajun Craze and stamped the greeting using the Falling Leaves stamp set by Stampin' Up (ret'd).  Inside, I created a sentiment using Time New Roman font, color matched to the Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla card stock, double matted on Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze.

  1. Nice cards everyone and Kim, I love that you did a matching envelope. I have been trying to give a little more detail on my envelopes, but that usually just involves a stamp. Yours has more impact.
