Well. Good Friday morning to y’all! Hope your week is going well – and that the last two days of 2016 will be uneventful! Or…eventful – whichever you prefer!
Igor has gone. Seems hard to believe he was even here! But, it was a wonderful visit – we had lots of catching up to do after 21 years, as you might imagine. Once we got back from the airport on Wednesday, Igor took a family picture! He’s getting big, isn’t he?!?
Yesterday we went up to the Mall of Georgia for him to do some last minute gift/souvenir shopping and then we dropped him at the airport in the evening for his flight. Finn – so he wouldn’t have to spend the day in his kennel, cuz…kennel! – went over to his friends’ house for a doggie day camp. He had a very good time with Scout and the other children! He was tired enough when we got him home that I’m not entirely sure he even noticed that Igor’s not here! 🙂
Now my card for today is a CASE-piration. I saw a cute sample for the Any Occasion stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration flyer and used it as a jumping off point for my card. It’s similar to the sample, but I’ve made some changes to it, so…a CASE-piration! Take a look-see:
This one was quick and easy! I started with a Crumb Cake card base and used a piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock to add a mat. I cut a piece of card stock the same size as normal (4″ x 5 1/4″ ), sliced it on the diagonal with my Stampin’ Trimmer and SNAILd it to the card front. The next layer is from the new (2017 Occasions) Succulent Garden DSP. I cut a normal sized card front (3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″), measured in a 1/4″ from the diagonal corners and made a tiny mark with a pencil. Then I sliced from mark-to-mark and SNAILd it over the mat – with the bottom left corner flush with the mat!
The central art heart is a piece of Whisper White card stock that I cut with the Sweet & Sassy Framelit. I made the sentiment banner using the various elements in the Any Occasion stamp set. First I stamped a “string” in Crumb Cake ink. Then I added a Crumb Cake “Hello” and finally stamped several little banners in Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral. The little heart below the banner is also from Any Occasion, stamped in Calypso Coral.
I popped the heart over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then I added a couple of Linen Thread bows with a couple of dabs of Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue, a heart from the new Sending Love Embellishments with Liquid Glue, and one Peekaboo Peach heart from the 2017-2018 In Colors Enamel Shapes. And the card front was done!
On the inside, I made a couple more Any Occasion banners from Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral on a Whisper White panel and added a couple more hearts.
For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added some Any Occasion banners and hearts across the front…
…and added some Succulent Garden DSP to the envelope flap. I did it a little differently than my normal flap embellishment – to coordinate with the front of the card. I adhered a piece of the DSP with Liquid Glue on a diagaonal, with the point at the bottom of the flap, then I just trimmed the excess.
