Case Study Friend


I love CASE Study
Hi everybody! This month I'm honored to be the guest muse over at the Case Study challenge blog!  If you haven't heard of them, I hope you'll take a moment to check out their fun challenge! Each Thursday in March they'll be challenging you to be inspired by and loosely CASE a given card of mine. They usually have some fun prizes, too, so be sure to check it out!

For this week, we're CASE-ing this card I made for Mark for our anniversary. It's one of my recent faves and I hope you find some inspiration there!  To read more about this card, you can check out my original post  here.
I took my inspiration from the overall shabby chic feel, the rosette and the flower... oh and those little hearts from the Text Objects set.. love them!  My card for today went with a much more feminine feel, but Mark seemed just as impressed by it.  He even momentarily stopped his video game to ooh and ahh over it!  And he knew right away exactly which card I had CASE'd.


I started with the Good Day Sunshine collection by My Mind's Eye and embossed the cheerful friend quote from Text Objects in Early Espresso directly onto the coral paper. Next I used the Damask texture fade to dry emboss above and below the sentiment, then sanded lightly for a super shabby feel. The rosette is made from coordinating paper using the Tim Holtz Rosette die and I matted it onto a Petite Scallop Circle Nestabilities die cut for a little more oomph! Next I added the stamped heart, sponged with a little Groovy Guava then the friend sentiment punched with the modern label punch. The Prima sets it off and I added a hint of glitter and diamond glaze mixture for a little sparkle.

Okay, so before you run and start the challenge, be sure to check out these inspired creations by the CASE Study Design team...
