CASE Study #73


Welcome back, friends!  It's time for another fabulous CASE Study challenge with our Muse of the month, Jen Rzasa!

By Jen Rzasa

I love the pop of bright colors with clean white cardstock on Jen's card, so I focused on those as well as the butterfly shape and sentiment banner.

I started by die cutting a circle in a square piece of white cardstock.  I used the same circle die and a scalloped circle die to cut a frame from chartreuse cardstock.  This panel is popped up with foam adhesive over a piece of orange patterned paper.

I die cut a white butterfly and added polka dot embossing, then layered a smaller turquoise butterfly on top and placed them in the center of the die cut window.  The sentiment, from PTI's Think Big Favorites #4, is stamped in turquoise on a double ended banner and embellished with blue gems.


Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse, White)
Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye (Fine & Dandy), Echo Park (Little Girl)
Stamp:  Papertrey Ink (Think Big Favorites #4)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (butterfly dies, double ended banner die), Spellbinders (circle, scalloped circle dies), ProvoCraft (embossing folder), corner rounder
Accessories:  rhinestones

I hope you'll find time to play along with the challenge this week!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Thursday!

Oh, that thin edge of patterned paper to match the pp on your butterfly! And then to mix it with the pp in the circle. Beautiful design.
