On the CASE: Oh, Hello Again!

Apr 24, 2019 | Hello, Just Because & For You Cards | 1 comment

What occasion to you create for the most?

I’ve found that I’m sending more “hello”, “just because”, and “thinking of you” type cards lately. I’ve been trying to get in the habit of sending notes to friends that don’t live close, but that are my “chosen family”. I don’t know who gets more out of it – the recipient who gets the surprise in their mailbox, or me who gets a note from that friend saying I made their day! Either way, it’s a win! So, #sendasmile today – ok?!

On the CASE Notes

(your step-by-step guide)

  1. Score the card base at 4 1/4″. Adhere the Peacock CS and set aside.
  2. Set up the Turnabout template and stamp in a stamp positioner. Stamp the image in each of the 4 colors on the 80lb Solar White CS, rotating the cardstock. 90-degrees each time
  3. Stamp the large sentiment in Staz-on Jet Black on the window sheet
  4. Diecut a circle from the center of the turnabout layer. Trim the layer to 4″ x 5 1/4″
  5. Adhere the window to the turnabout layer with some tear tape or Tombow Multipurpose Glue
  6. Add foam strips around the window, add sequins and then add a small backing piece to cover the space
  7. Adhere the finished shaker layer to the card base

How Hard Was It to Crack this CASE?

Difficulty Level: 2 out of 5 – Turnabout or rotating pattern designs are an instant wow that’s easy to create! I love that you can do these up in any color combo and achieve a multitude of different effects! If you love this stamp set, better hurry and grab it – it’s on the last chance list over at Concord & 9th – about to be retired. You can also find it at Scrapbook.com, but hurry!

We hope our projects today inspired you to try CASE-ing our projects, or another project you’ve been eyeing!  We hope to see you again in 2 weeks when we’ll be On the CASE again!
