CASing my card

Evening peeps.
Not my usual time for posting as I'm currently at my craft class having a fab time with some lovely ladies but it is a special occasion. Some of my regular readers may remember I won the December challenge over at CAS Mix Up with this card. As a result Bonnie and Loll asked if I would be their guest for the February challenge. Here is my card


using this months theme


For my card I decided to CASe a card I made almost a year ago, here.
I cut a frame from a piece of corrugated cardboard, then stripped the front paper covering off to reveal the corrugations. To add a touch of glitz, I added some Inka Gold wax (my choice) in gold to the edges and lightly rubbed some over the ripples with my finger.
The flowers are my favourite Painted Flowers by Altenew, just love the arty feel of these blooms, which I recycled from a project that never saw the light of day because I splodged some paint on part of the panel and couldn't rescue it!
I stamped and embossed the outlines before embossing in glittery black EP (my choice), this allowed me to watercolour (my choice) the blooms with some DI in Picked Raspberry and Peeled Paint. The darker shading was added once the first wash was touch dry. You could of course use the other stamps in the set to stamp the petals and shading.
Before adding flowers and frame to the base, I diluted some more of the Inka Gold with water and splattered it across the bottom right of the base card and finished off with a gold embossed sentiment on a banner.

That's about it from me, but please check out the rest of the team for some fabulous inspiration.

  4. Jules, thanks so very much for being the Guest Designer for CAS Mix Up. Since it's the first challenge I've ever hosted (thanks to Loll and Bonnie for inviting me to do it), I'm thrilled to have you come up with such a beautiful card. I love the way you made the corrugated frame and rubbed it with the Inka Gold, and then echoed that with the splatters and the gold sentiment.
