On the CASE: Detailed With Love
It’s time to celebrate!
This is the last CASE file for Ann and I this year! Wow! How time flies 😀 I thought I’d revisit a past suite and share another quick and simple design. With the holiday hustle and bustle, it can be good to have a few quick cards ready to go.

On the CASE Notes
(your step-by-step guide)
- Grab one of the Blackberry Bliss watercolor wash notecards from the Delightfully Detailed Notecards & Envelopes pack.
- Trim out the spiral floral pattern and a bit of the dotted scallop trim from the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper.
- Sponge some Grapefruit Grove ink on the white side of the scallop trim using a sponge dauber.
- Stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss. Trim the dots off the bottom of the sentiment.
- Adhere the scallop element to the bottom of the sentiment.
- Thread the sentiment through the laser cut piece.
- Add a 2 1/4″ vellum circle behind the sentiment.
- Adhere the finished sentiment panel to the card base. The laser cut piece should fit exactly. If not, trim the card base or the laser cut to fit.
- Add some Faceted Dots for some extra bling!
How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?
Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Once I realized that there was no way this card was actually white, but vanilla, the project came together quickly. Sometimes SU has their product samples put together and photographed before they finalize designs and colors. Seems like they originally thought to use Whisper White as the primary neutral for the Delightfully Detailed suite, not Very Vanilla – hence the white looking sample images in the catalog! I really love the detail of weaving the sentiment through the laser cut image. It really makes the whole thing look pretty complex, but really, it’s just about having the patience to weave through and adhere. Give this project a try this weekend and you’ll have lots of nice notecards to use in the coming weeks!
We’ll be back!
We’ll be On the CASE again in 2 weeks – in 2019!! Be on the lookout for fresh, new projects, and a NEW assignment for ME! But, until then…

Here's some other projects you'll like!
Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!
It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
