Hello. Welcome. My bloggy friend Monika had a birthday this month. She proposed we CASE one of her cards and link in to her blog for a chance to win some crafty moohlah. What a fun idea. So I decided to CASE this card
I decided to go purple and gold. Purple cos Monika's blog is purple so I figured that was a colour she liked. Also it's the Cheery Lynn Challenge theme this week LOL and since I was going to use their boots....... Gold cos I was using it last night and it's still all over the desk. And it goes well with purple.
I discovered yesterday that if I offset one cut line on the Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle die I can cut a base card with the stitchy detail. How slow am I?? All the panels on this card have been cut using this die with a little bit of fiddle to reduce the sizes. I used the horseshoe from Cheery Lynn Arizona Cowboy set to add detail to the panel, instead of stencilling like Monika did. The horseshoe represents good luck so I am sending you lots Monika.
I made my topper using gold mirror card and one of the boot dies from the Cheery Lynn Arizona Cowboy set. I added a flower brad and a sticky greeting. So, belated happy birthday Monika. Hope you like my CASE.
