Gallery Gazers CASE

This is my November card for a newer blog group that I am a part of on SCS. It is called the Gallery Gazers and was created by one of my good friends on SCS, Jeanette--Forest Ranger.  You all know her as one of the Three Musketeers and a part of Ready, Set Go, both groups also including Kelly.  No surprise, Kelly is also one of the members of the Gallery Gazers too.  The premise behind the group is friendship, a shared love of stamping, and also a shared admiration for the many amazing creators who post in the SCS Gallery. Once a month, we are each to choose a card/project from the SCS Gallery to CASE--Copy and Share Everywhere. This post is the card I made after being inspired by Yvette (YvettesArts on SCS) card found Here!  

I loved the look of the snowflake banner inset on the card and I just got this same stamp and matching dies a week ago.  It was time to ink it up and use some of the silver Mirricard paper that I got last weekend at a stamp show in Madison.  I am always nervous to stamp a sentiment right on the card, like for a CAS--Clean and Simple Card.  I really did not want to heat emboss the sentiment on the card after I did all of the die cutting, so I did it on another piece of cardstock and layered it on a piece of of the silver metallic cardstock.  I liked the card so much, I made 15 of them with a bit of a different layout for a swap at my LSS called Polka Dots.  That card will be on my blog on December 4th.

I had fun creating this card and I am behind in making cards for this group.  I am missing an October one and will hope to post two in December!  Be sure to check back and see what I make.  There is not set date to post our creations, so check back often!

Barb, I love your card! What a fabulous CASE and yes, I agree about stamping the sentiment right on the card... your idea to do it on a separate paper seems brilliant!

Thank you for being part of the Gallery Gazers... and for WOW'ing us with your talent!

Such a pretty CAS card! I hadn’t realized the swoosh and snow were silver. What a beautiful touch!
I’m with you about stamping the sentiment directly on the card front. Nerve wracking! Lol
