CASEplorations August

Hello Crafty Friends!

It's time to start off 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 are made using a cake of chalks/pastels dragged across my piece of card. The rest is pretty easy ... the butterflies from the Trendy Butterflies set were embossed with Frantage powder, fuzzy cut and glazed with clear nail varnish. My topper and sentiment were die cut using CUTplorations dies: Word Die Smile and Rectangle Nesting Dies Crazy Double Running Stitch.

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!
