#CTC241 CASE a Layout on Page 101

CASE any of these layouts on page 101:

For me, I was drawn to the Woodgrain background card on the bottom left.

I've used a base card of Smokey Slate, which has had the small image from  Daisy Lane stamped in Blueberry Bushel randomly. From Noble Peacock Specialty DSP (this is just stunning!! but hard to show how much in a photograph), I've diecut several of the Stitched Nested Labels and with some assistance from Press n Seal, I've lined them all up and attached to a piece of Smokey Slate with multipurpose liquid glue so I could still wiggle it a little into place as needed. When I was happy with the placement I trimmed the edges and matted this onto a piece of Blueberry Bushel cardstock and then onto the base using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I've used a larger sized Stitched Nested Labels die and cut one from Whisper White and one from vellum, recutting the white piece with the same die to give a straight edge at the top and leaving the same stitching. The greeting added is from Stitched All Round and again uses Blueberry Bushel ink. I've trimmed the vellum and turned so the straight edge lined up with the straight edge of my white piece, and adhered it to the back.  

The piece of crinkled seam binding ribbon gave me the idea for some texture in my leaves. I've punched them with the Leaf punch from Garden Green cardstock. I then spritzed them with water and squished them into a ball. They were then carefully unfolded and left to dry. The cardstock soaks up the water and makes them a bit thicker but when dry very stiff and hold their shape. 

My daisy is the star of the show and the Baker's Twine ribbon finishes the CASE.

I've used the Medium Daisy punch with the matching image from Daisy Lane. I have sponged colour to the centre instead of the whole image and repeated this four times. If you look closely you will see a little notch at the end of each petal, I've just popped the very tip of the petal back into the punch, punched then repeated for every petal. The edges were sponged gently at the edges as well. For the gardeners among you, this reminded me very much of an Osteospermum and I seem to recalling one that was blue. 

This is a different angle to highlight the stunning Noble Peacock Specialty DSP

The Daisy Lane bundle is a winner in my book!  Thanks for stopping by, and please continue on to see what the rest of the crew have been up to, starting with Rebecca who just might have been called to  the same card to CASE...


  1. What a great idea to use the label dies portrait orientation to create the tabs on the side of your main panel, I am going to have to CASE that sometime soon! The flower is so soft and understated against the beautiful foil background ... just perfect.

  2. Absolutely stunning card. I love the background of Peacock Foil DSP in the Stitched Nested Dies and the sponging just to the centre of the daisy is so subtle and matches so well with the background.

  3. Wow Sandra, gorgeous card. The Noble Peacock background looks amazing and I love how you've coloured your daisy, beautiful.

  4. Everything is perfect. Gorgeous flower and brilliant DSP choice for the background. Love love love

  5. Your card is gorgeous, Sandra. Love the colour palette and your beautiful daisy. The foil makes a beautiful background.

  6. That background is amazing. Like some sort of beautiful tiles. I admire your patience in lining all those pieces up so neatly. Lots of beautiful details, the daisy is especially lovely. :) Siobhan.
