CASE Study #139






The Muse this week at CASE Study Challenge is Maile Belles. Maile has her own personal style of CAS Fabulous.  The CASE Study is based on this fantastic card of hers:




I really put my thinking cap on for this one and I kept coming back to the flower.  So I stamped a flower first on a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock.  Then I carefully used my trimmer to go along  about 1" in from the edge of the stamped piece to as close to the flower as I could, then fussy cut the flower.  Then I adhered it with foam tape to an embossed cardstock base.

Here is my card:




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  Whit
Stamps: Daydreamer
Ink:  New Leaf, Winter Wisteria (PTI)  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
other: dot embossing folder (Cuttlebug)
