#CTC006 with Jessie Holton - 'HELLO'


Today I am CASEing one of my own cards for this weeks Case This Card challenge.

This card is from my #CTC005 blog Water Colours

The elements I chose from my last card were 
  1. the Water Coloring
  2. the Layers 
  3. the Colours
  4. the use of Vellum

I wanted a totally different card this time and I think I have accomplished that with 'HELLO'

I wanted a card that could be replicated and modified, but be slightly different each time it was replicated.
Sound mysterious?
 Well for those going to 'On Stage' in Brisbane, all will be revealed then.


With out further ado,

To Make 'HELLO'
  • Choose a neutral card base. Fold an A4 in half at 15 cm then trim at 10.5 cm.
  • Then choose a colour you want to feature. I chose Peekaboo Peach. Trim so as to leave a small edge of the base showing underneath.
  • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake to 7 x 13 cm
  • Stamp the image you want onto Very Vanilla and Water Colour using Aqua Painters..... then trim to fit your card and placement.
* Don't let anyone tell you that you can't water colour on normal cardstock. the trick is to be QUICK!
* Now this does take practice, and remember being water colour, it is very forgiving. No one expects you to remain inside the lines!
  • Distress the edges of your trimmed image and your main colour card.
  • Layer them as pictured. I have placed Stampin' Dimensionals under the Peekaboo Peach.

  • Under my distressed image I have added small strips of burlap ribbon. 
  • I have also added a length of Linen Thread around the edge of the Crumb Cake and tied my sentiment to this.
  • At the bottom I have stapled a small doubled over section of Very Vanilla lace trim
