CASEd from Sandy Mathis at Stamp With Sandy.
I love the color combination of this one—Cherry Cobbler, Lost Lagoon, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake. It's really fresh & clean!
Background Basics—I started with a Crumb Cake card base and stamped down the side with the leaves from Crazy About You in Crumb Cake ink.
Next, I stamped the leaves from Crazy About You on a 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Whisper White, also in Crumb Cake ink to make a foundation for my flower focal point.
Blue Border—I die-cut a zig-zag border with the Finishing Touches Edgelits from a 3/4" x 5/1/2" strip of Lost Lagoon. It's SNAILed onto the back of the Whipser White stamped layer, then adhered to the card front.
Flower Focal Point—Crazy About You comes with two cool flower designs. I stamped the larger one in Cherry Cobbler and punched it out with the Flower Medallion Punch, then popped it up with Dimensionals. Pearl Jewels in the flower's center and surrounding the bloom add soft, textured details.
Crazy Greetings—The Crazy About You phrase is inked in Lost Lagoon and stamped onto a 1/2" wide piece of Crumb Cake card stock. I trimmed it to size, then fish-tailed the ends before popping up with more Dimensionals.
Sweet Thinlit—Lastly, I die-cut my Hello You word from Crushed Curry card stock and adhered it to the front with dabs of Multipurpose Glue.
TIP: I used a sheet of wax paper between the card stock and die, and I ran the die through the Big Shot four times to make sure the word was fully cut and could release easily. Those little extra steps work like a charm!
TIP: When adding the Multipurpose Glue, be sure to use very small dabs and do it very sparingly. I like to dab only at the intersections of the lines and the outer-most lines. Use too much and you'll have glue smooshing out from the edges, like my photo above shows. Oops!
Two Cool—On my horizontal version, I changed the border to a Large Scallop Edgelit shape.
