My first CASEd card?

This is my first attempt ever of casing a  card. I say "attempt", because I'm not quite sure that I've got the concept right. I was inspired by the card layout, but I changed the shape to a square card, and I added two fussy cut birds mounted on foam - I don't know if I'm "allowed" to do just that. But CASE or no CASE - I enjoyed making this card!

I've used a DP from the Bo Bunny Crush Collection, panelled it onto a strip of organza before I attached it to the black paper.
The sentiment (from Kanban) and the birds (from KaiserCraft) have been heat embossed in white.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #3 CASE
2) Card Makin' Mamas - Clean and simple
3) Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - For the birds
4) Top Tip Tuesday - #93 Fur Or Feathers
5) Gems of Inspiration - Emboss It
6) Totally Papercrafts – It's embossing time

This is gorgeous! The black card looks almost velvet in the phot and I love the shots of colour in the patterned paper. Thos birds are the perfect finishing touch. I am also new to case-ing but it looks like you've got it spot on to me.
Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational.

Sorry Pia-here I go again-I think this is a great case Pia, as long as you don't just copy the card there are no rules. I love your little birds and they are a great match to the paper. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational and well done for the honorable mention this week at 52CCT!

Hi Pia. I love your card. The DSP is gorgeous. You have the panelling look of the CASE card so no question at all that it fits the challenge. Well done. Thanks for playing again this week at Inkspirational. Hope to see you back again next week.

Hi Pia, your CASE is gorgeous! That black paper really does look like velvet in the photo! The DP and fussy cut birds are perfect. Thank you for joining us at Inkspirational this week!

Ruth M said...

Pia - you were inspired by the layout but made the design your own so your CASE is perfect! I added 3 popped up flowers to my card so you're definitely allowed the 2 popped up birds LOL! ; )

This is a gorgeous card and I love that you made it square!

Thanks so much for playing along with us at Inkspirational once more & I hope you join us again soon! Ruth x
