A week or so ago, I told you how much I dearly love the bears from QKR Stampede (challenge theme: dies or punches) and today I'm using another one for a Get Well card. I hope this brings a smile to your face.
My design sketch came from the CASE card at
AAA Cards and it has to be CAS.
I tried to stick with the colors, too, but dulled my background pink quite a bit.
I colored the bear with ProMarkers, then die cut the image with a square die and used a corner punch on all 4 corners. The background piece I made myself, using an old piece of plastic netting (like you get with a fruit or vegetable bag) and coloring across it with the chisel tip of the ProMarkers. Aside from the fact that I wanted something close to the background on the CASE card, I really like that effect and will use it again, I'm sure. That piece is also die cut and punched.
I dry embossed the brown CS strip with the "Lattice" folder from SU. The sentiment is my own, printed with a computer font. My only embellishment on this CAS card is the die cut swirl in the lower corner. No ribbon, no twine, no string, no flowers, no gems or pearls -- I think I'm finally getting the hang of CAS!! :-D
