Anyway, in papercrafting, to CASE means to Copy and Share Everything. In other words, you find a card you really like, and you make one like it. For today's card, I CASEd my own card from my last post. I made my first easel card then, and I ended my post saying that I was starting on another one already. That's exactly what I did. I was so pleased with my last card (especially the stamps I used on it from ODBD!) that I made another one a great deal like it, except that I made this one CAS - which is NOT my usual style! CAS stands for Clean and Simple, btw. lol Here it is:
As I said, I used ODBD stamps again. These are all from the Friendship Set. I used the same white base card and red cardstock for the front base as I did for my first easel card. The dp is also the same - from Sassafraslass. I simply flipped it over and used the striped side. This already gave my card a more CAS look, so I kind of got the idea at that point. I tied the dp with the rest of my red dotted ribbon. Instead of a doily like I used in the last card, I used a larger Spellbinder's Scalloped Oval cut from plain white cardstock. I stamped the lovely swirly butterfly on red mulberry paper again with CTMH White Dasiy ink, which I heat embossed with white embossing powder. This time I painted the edge with blue acrylic paint. I used the same white ink and ep with the "Thank you for being my friend" sentiment. I think you'll notice that I do lots of heat embossing. It has to be my favorite technique - I love the look it gives!
The verse from Corinthians was stamped on a piece of cardstock from my stash with Brilliance Mediterranean Blue ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder - of course! : ) I painted the cardstock with blue acrylic paint first, btw. So their is plenty of red, white and blue! Here is a closeup of the inside:
I added a piece of the dp (turned in the other direction) to the bottom half of the inside before adhering the cardstock verse. Finally, I had to add a few pearls! That is as CAS as I can get! lol
I am entering this in the following challenges:
ODBD Shining the Light Challenge - red, white and blue
Pile It On - favorite technique
Stamping, Scrapping Challenge Central - a CAS project
