Casing Carly



This is a weekend I don't want to see come to an end! Had a visit from our oldest son and his wife as they are on the move from Atlanta to northern VA. I don't post personal pics very often, but had to share a picture of them in our back yard. The weather was glorious, but all good things must come to an end as we told them goodbye this evening. I wanted to honor today's featured stamper on SCS - Carly Robertson aka PaperInBloom - who has an awesome gallery of CAS style cards! I chose THIS CARD to CASE. I used different stamps, different border punch, added some embossed lines to the sentiment strip and rounded the base card corners. I stamped and colored the dahlia image twice, then cut a portion out and layered with foam dots.
STAMPS: Delightful Dahlia & Mat Stack I Collection (sentiment) - both by PTI.
PAPER: Bashful Blue, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black.
ACCESSORIES: Modern Garland border punch by MS, Gingham ribbon, Score-Pal, Copics (Boooo, B91, B93, G40, G82, G94, Y13).
