Hi there! The CASE Study Blog is celebrating its 2nd Anniversary and I am so honored to be a part of the big celebration! This week, the blog hop theme is "Think Out of the Box" - and you're asked to tackle something you have never done before, whether it's a style, technique, type of project, etc.
If you are hopping along in order, you should have arrived here from Jen Rzasa's blog. If you just stopped by to see what I've been up to, make sure to head on over to the CASE Study blog...you will be so glad you did!
In this card, I tackled three things that I never do - clean and simple, a tall and skinny card, and NO embellishments! GASP!!!! I wasn't sure I was going to make it there for a little while... LOL! Just kidding! Seriously though, I really admire those who can create such amazing clean and simple cards...it is a lot harder than it looks!!
For my card, I cut the scalloped rectangle layers, mustache, & lips all with my Silhouette. I then embossed the best wishes sentiment (from the Simply Said set from Paper Smooches) along the bottom.
Funny story... When I first showed this card to my DH he just stared and stared at it. After a while, I asked him if he "got it". Being the ever so tactful guy that he is, he said "no, but it's a really great card". LOL!!! That made me nervous though, because I thought it was pretty clear it was a fun style wedding card. Oh well, at least he said he liked it! Teeheee!
I couldn't help myself. I had to make two projects! The very first thing that I thought of when I saw the theme "think out of the box", I thought of a literal box. LOL! So, I created a box that I have never made before...a cupcake box! :-)
Again, I used my Silhouette to cut out the box. I then decorated it with some liquid pearls along the scalloped edge. For the "cherry on top", I added some ribbon and red roses. To finish it off, I used a tag image and two sentiments (from the Tag Time set from Verve Stamps).
This little box was SO much fun to make! I think I might make up several of these to keep on hand for when I need them. :-)
Next up on the hop, is the super talented Amy Sheffer!!
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Laurie
