Casual Fridays 61 - CASE card


I was over on my friend Kirsty's blog and saw this lovely card, immediately I knew I wanted to CASE it, and so armed with some scraps which I've been meaning to use for ages, and my trusty cuttlebug to cut me some lovely shapes I set about making my own version. This is also for the CAS-ual fridays challenge to use strips of paper.

The two outer banners are Basic Grey papers, whilst the chevron one is actually a scrap of wallpaper. I used my Papertrey Fillable Frames 5 for the main sentiment frame. I have the matching die, and so the blue one is the full size of the die, and stamped around the edge with a gentle blue tone, and then I used the die twice to get the smaller version of the frame by overlapping and cutting off part of the larger one. I then used my Waltzingmouse teeny trees sentiment, added some lovely sage ribbon and a couple of pins (very Kirsty!) and Broken China distress ink finish off this card.

I had enough scraps to make two cards, but didn't want them to be identical,  so this time I used my Spellbinders nesties Labels 1 for the sentiment and frame, cut in half. 

The sentiment here is from Banana Frog.


  1. Both cards are so pretty - I love that colour combination.
