You Made Me Smile Today ~ CASE Study #98

youmademesmile

Hello friends!  It’s the first week of a new month so that means we have a fabulous new Muse to inspire us all month long over on the CASE Study challenge!  For the next 4 weeks the sweet and talented, Kristii Lockart, will be getting our creative juices flowing.  Up first is this totally adorable baby card…

july5 #98

I must confess that I struggled with an idea.  I so wanted to recreate that stamped fence look, but I just couldn’t get it to work.  So when that happens, I step back and think of what else can I be inspired by…ah, the layout and the flowers and some cool way to display the flowers.  So I found some lovely paper to frame my card, then pulled out my Verve dies and stamps and started die cutting and stamping my little heart out :)  As I was playing around with the flower die cuts, I slipped the little ones underneath the frame. EUREKA!  I loved the cool look of this.  Now I must share with you that this sweet sentiment is from the very first Verve stamp set I won oh so many years ago, Thankful Blossoms.  I had very good luck with their contests and always joke that I won so much they put me on the payroll!  LOL  I hope all my American friends had a fabulous 4th of July!! Thanks for stopping by…now head over to the CASE Study blog to see what the other DT members were inspired then play along!!  We love seeing your interpretations :)

wow you came up with a great case of this card-I have found it hard but an idea has popped into my head. Although like you my first idea may not work. Love the way you have described how you came up with this-this description is an inspiration of how to tackle casing a card-thank you Moe x

I LOVE the way you tucked those flowers under the frame! All of those bright colors against the crisp white embossing look fantastic, too.
