CASE Study #191 + Simon Says Stamp

With a few failed attemps at my grafitti style card yesterday, I ended up with three white "hello" die cuts sitting on my desk. Having already checked out Wida Miller's new inspiration card for CASE Study #191, I knew just how to use them.

One of the coolest things about Wida's card is the color/white-on-white divide! I couldn't get mine to work side-by-side with the width of the word, so finally settled on an upper/lower divide.

The center rectangle panel is scored and folded in on each side and the center three letters are adhered to it. The outer edges of the die cut and the folded back edges of the "vase" are adhered to the card base, allowing the vase to bow out a bit.

With a life time supply of patterned papers, I try to avoid looking at 6X6 pads when I am shopping, but the sweet colors & patterns on this Lawn Fawn pad were irresistable and came home with me last week.

A few different leaf & flower dies are layered on white stems before adding the trio of butterflies.

As this card is all die cuts, it is being added to the Die Crazy challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.

My Junior is heading to her first Prom tonight, so we are off and running with the hair, make-up, mani/pedi prep. Thankfully our marine layer arrived overnight, giving us cooler temperatures & higher humidity, helping the firefighters gain control of the wildfires and, for most of us, life is returning to normal.

Thanks for stopping by,
