This is the card we are CASEing this week:
And this is the card translated to a sketch to help you in your planning. We hope you'll play along and post your card to our Facebook page by next Sunday evening using the link over to the right.
I've opted for a monotone card - white on white - except for the greeting. I've used a thick Whisper White cardstock base. I've cut a mat and trimmed it to 1/3 and 2/3, running the small piece through my machine with the Pinewood Planks 3D folder and the larger piece with the Ornate Floral 3D folder. I adhered them to a scrap of cardstock to hold them while I wrapped a piece of Baker's Twine around the card then added it to my base.
Next I used Layering Squares to cut my square and the scalloped background. I embossed the plain square with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder and glued it to the backing scallop. My greeting is from Zany Zebras and stamped onto Whisper White card then adhered to a piece of black cardstock with had been diecut using one of the Ornate Borders dies. This was then popped under the scallop and the whole section was added using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I've used Poppy Moments dies to cut the poppy background from Vellum cardstock and the outline and stamens from Whisper White before adhering them all together (just in the centre), and gluing to the embossed square. I've added a Baker's Twine bow to finish.
