CASE Study #202

Hello everybody,

Welcome to the last CASE Study with Shari Carroll. I am sad this is the last card from Shari but it has be super cool to CASE her cards this month. This is the last muse card from Shari.

I LOVE the big bright red flower against the kraft background, especially the shades of the red. Similarly the green coloured flower used as leaves. So my card is based of these inspiration.

Celebrate card

I wanted to make a normal sized card. But the biggest flowers I had in my collection were from Uniko Studio's Pure Florals. They are not big enough. Shari's card is smaller, so the single flower is big on the card. I decided to stamp a cluster of flowers and leaves. Using masking technique, I stamped the flowers and leaves in Versafine Black Ink and heat embossed with clear sparkly embossing powder. I already loved the black embossed cluster on the kraft panel. I then used copics to colour the flowers and leaves. I have used three reds and two greens. The flower centre is yellow. Did I tell you that I love colouring on kraft cardstock? But this one was soooo beautiful, that I felt so proud having created it. To add some shimmer, I coloured the flowers using Wink of Stella clear pen. You can see it in the photo below.

Celebrate flat

For the sentiment, I stamped the sentiment from Birthday Fontiment also from Uniko Studio on the banner die cut from Reverse Confetti. I love love the font of this sentiment. I adhere the banner on the top right corner slight off set. I trimmed off the excess. Finally accented with some red enamel dots. The finished panel is adhered to the card based using foam adhesives.

Celebrate close up!

I am pretty proud with how this card turned out. Hope you are inspired. Come and join me in the challenge.

Come and play along with us.

In August CASE Study is celebrating its 4th Anniversary. Yay!

Join me in the fun!

Your "celebrate" card is beautiful. I am interested in your using Copics with embossing powder. I was told that would damage the nibs of the markers. What do you think?

Fantastic card! The reds and greens really pop from kraft cardstock.
