Hi Blog Friends!
I have some MORE FLOURISHES
GOODNESS for you!!! Flourishes has a Challenge right now---All you have to do is CASE one of Stacy's cards! Here:
Now, my interpretation of "CASE"ing, is to try to re-create the card you are "CASE"ing as best you can! It also means you have some freedom too, because we each don't have the EXACT tools as the person we are "CASE"ing! Another words, your card will NOT look EXACTLY as the person's card you are "CASE"ing! Color, shape etc., is something you can stick with or change! It's really all about INSPIRATION! (Do tell me if I'm wrong?)
Here is Stacy's card that I CASED:
Stacy has ALOT MORE CARDS & 3D items over on the Flourishes blog to CASE! (You can choose one to CASE yourself & join in on the fun!) I chose this one because I don't have all those GORGEOUS DIES that she uses! (Just ONE of those things I need to work on getting! I just get SO CAUGHT UP in IMAGES!) This particular card came the closest to what I have on hand. I thought it quite elegant with all the embossing! I don't have the same stamp set Stacy used either BUT, I did WIN the set I used JUST THIS WEEK! (It came QUICKLY in the mail! HOW FUN!!!!!) I saw one of the stamps in the set, Berry Sweet Frame, as a shape that was near the same shape as the tag on Stacy's card! And I gathered an embossing folder I had that had a nice design as close as Stacy's too.
Here's what I came up with:
Here's what I came up with:
Now, I know my card isn't lavender as Stacy's but, I don't think lavender strawberries are "in!" LOL So, I went with the red! I used the embossing folder Flourished Frame by Cuttle bug for the embossed flourish at the top of Stacy's card & I used my Martha Stewart Score Board to create the criss-cross scoring at the bottom of the front panel. (To do this easily, the top embossed flourish is a separate piece of paper from the bottom. My Gingham ribbon covers where they meet.)
This picture shows where I just COULDN'T RESIST adding MS Crystal Fine glitter! It just made me think of SUGAR! And gave the feel that these strawberries were EXTRA FRESH from the garden!
Here if you enlarge the photo, I think you'll be able to see the criss-cross across on the bottom panel.
I HAVE TO SAY, that the Strawberries were ALOT OF FUN to color!!! Instead of coloring them all juicy red as we all LOVE them, I thought why not color them as we've sometimes seen them, not quite ripe???? This way there's just a little more color to them! I used my Copic Markers, also coloring my rhinestones to match!
Copic Markers for the Strawberries: RO8-Vermillion, RV29-Crimson, Y11-Pale Yellow; for leaves- YGO3-Yellow Green & GO7- Nile Green.
Now, for the INSIDE: I used those yummy Strawberries & the set Fresh Baked by Flourishes for the sentiment! I also embossed a line near the edge of the inside panel for added interest!

Hm mm, these Strawberries are making me hungry!
Dreaming of Strawberries floating on clouds of Whipped Cream!
