On the CASE: Make a Difference

Nov 21, 2018 | Hello, Just Because & For You Cards, On the CASE | 1 comment

Here’s a quick getaway from the holiday hustle & bustle…

For today’s On the CASE, I have a fun little 3x3 card that you can make in a few minutes – perfect for a quick getaway from all the extra people and an opportunity to let your mind empty out while you focus on some fun and simple crafting.

I popped back into the Annual Catalog and a suite of products that you probably saw a lot of early on – the Share What You Love suite. There’s lots of fun little projects in the catalog, and that Specialty DSP is just amazing, so, let’s dive in!

For On the CASE with Ann & Nicole (November 2018 - Make a Difference - 2018-19 Annual Catalog). Featuring, Make a Difference stamp set, Share What You Love Specialty DSP. For more details including tips for CASE-ing this card , click through. #pmretreat #stampinup #hello #handstamped

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score your card base at 3″. Fold and burnish the edge with a bone folder.
  2. Emboss one side of the card base with the Lovely Floral DTIEF
  3. Stamp the word “hello” in Granny Apple Green on Whisper White.
  4. Diecut sentiment with the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits
  1. Fussy cut two large flowers, a small flower and three leaf fronds.
  2. Arrange the fussy cut images around the diecut sentiment.
  3. Add two turns of white thread from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.
  1. Adhere the Specialty DSP strip to the card base.
  2. Adhere the finished sentiment element using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. Adhere three Artisan Pearls to the center of the left-most flower.

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – This was a lovely little card that could be easily stepped-down by omitting the embossing folder and using a 1 1/2″ Circle Punch instead of the die. No Big Shot required! That makes this design a bit more accessible to the beginner stamper. To make it even simpler, the fussy cut pieces could be omitted all together!
