Welcome to our monthly cross country CASEing (Copy & Selectively Edit) adventure. Karen Hallam in CA and I, here in PA, enjoy CASEing either a card or a theme each month. This month’s theme is “Celebrations”. It was Karen’s month to create the card to be CASE’d. Here’s Karen’s bright and cheerful card…
Doesn’t this card just make your eyes POP?!
I have an absolutely JOYOUS celebration to highlight this month. Our second grandchild, Luke Stephen, was born last Wednesday. He joined big brother, Jack and our daughter, Emily and husband, Mike. Needless to say, we are thrilled and overjoyed that he’s here!
In honor of this special celebration, I created a baby card CASEing Karen’s color scheme…
This card is cased from Lisa Curcio. I found her adorable overall card on Pinterest and thought it would make a unique baby card. You can view Lisa’s tutorial HERE.
I think Pacific Point and Poppy Parade card stock and DSP created a simply adorable pair of overalls. After following Lisa’s tutorial, I decided to give the straps and pockets a bit more dimension by embossing them with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. The buttons are dies from My Favorite Things Vintage Button dies.
After creating my initial card, I went ahead and made two more using patterns from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper collection. Though not necessarily a natural choice for baby cards, I thought the gingham paired with the other patterns worked well.
The cute little kangaroo baby is from the soon retiring, Kangaroo & Company stamp set. I actually found myself using this set more than I thought I would. Here are a few other cards I created using this set. I know I’ll hang onto it for a while as it’s just that cute!
If you haven’t already visited Karen’s site, please hop over to check out the details of her card.
I’ll leave you with a sweet picture of our new little guy, Luke and his very excited to be a big brother, Jack.
Thanks for stopping by today.
