CASEplorations August Reminder

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today's post is a little reminder that it is still time to play with us at the August CASEplorations Challenge over at STAMPlorations. This month we are CASEing this stunning card by Vijaylaxmi Siyal better known as Shalu from All By Heart Creations.

Shalu posted about her card on her blog here, if you want to check it out. Have a look, what can you see?

  • bold strips, appearing black to me, but on reading Shalu's post, I discovered they were navy blue
  • flowers
  • silver embossing and threat
  • sequins
  • focal pop of colour, provided by the orange flowers
Here is what I made of it ...

I went for the bold stripes which I made using an orange Caran D'Ache Crayon on a piece of ink blended card cut with the medium CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Die. The rest is pretty easy ... stamp out and die cut the buttercups from the Buttercups And Butterflies set and Coordinating CUTplorations Dies and attach to your topper. Stamp and cut out a sentiment from the Bloom Happy set, pop it up in place, layer your topper on a linen effect base card and finish off with a touch of Stickles on the buttercups.

Looking forward to seeing your creations inspired by Shalu's card. You can link them up here on the STAMPlorations Blog.
Back again soon.

Have a lovely day!
