CASE Study 4

Well, this is it. My last week as the January CASE Study muse  :(  It's been a lot of fun...so thanks again to Chupa and the CASE Study DT!

Today's inspiration card is one that I originally made for the September PTI blog hop challenge.


Wow...that embroidery floss is so classically "me," isn't it?  Which is why I'm sure you'll be shocked to find out that I didn't add any embroidery floss to this card!  Instead, I took a big breath, braced myself, and opened up a container of glitter (This was 3 days ago, and I am STILL plagued by miniscule flecks of blue!)

I hope that dealing with the glitter was worth it for my card:


Ooooh...shiny!

It might be tough to tell, but the glitter is actually flush with the white cardstock.  I used my craft knife (that's in bold for you, Cath, so you know why I entered into the Cutting and Trimming Challenge!) to cut the three rectangular openings, then put a piece of packaging tape behind the opening so the sticky side was facing out, and sprinkled on the glitter!  I learned this technique from Lisa, here.

So glad you could stop by! And if you play along with CASE study, tell 'em I sent ya!  :)

Get out--what a fantastic idea for making the glitter flush with the card! I can't believe how perfectly straight your cuts are, though. What a fun design!

Really neat! I had no idea you cut those lines! I thought they were strips of score tape. Amazing!!!
