Today we C.A.S.E. a card that has quite a bit going on.
Gracie continues her outstanding take on the challenges this week.
Before I started I chose papers to use from my paper pad Basic Gray's Oh Boy). I picked 3. I began with the brown as a base panel, then the chevron as a second panel, and turned the triangle a different direction and placed it higher on the card. I know Fall is over but while looking in my stash I found these copper leaves and borders. I put the panel on a black card stock base and used a white panel and a strip of the chevron paper on the inside of the card. I think I can use it as a masculine card. ~ Gracie
My card includes a couple of new things I tried.
I thought one of the papers in my stack looked sort of Oriental, so I went with that theme and made a tri-fold card. I cut it on my Cricut from a 12 x 12 green paper so that I could cut the diamond shape from the one side. I then cut the Oriental paper just a little smaller than the left side and mounted it on that side. I placed a piece of acetate cut just a little larger than the opening and attached it to the inside. That allows the pattern to show through around the image that I used in the middle of the diamond. That image was done in gold and gold flake vinyl on my Explore. It is a goldfish from the cartridge called Pagoda. I first pit it directly on the acetate, but decided it didn't show up well, so I took it off and put it on a white cardstock diamond. On the back I used gold washi tape to cover where the adhesive for the acetate was showing and used a stamped white cardstock diamond to cover up that adhesive too. The inside sentiment and bamboo leaves are from Club Scrap. A gold button from my stash with the shank cut off and placed on foam tape gives a place for the front to slide into to hold it closed. It was a different way to make a card and I ended up liking the effect. - Denise
