[11.13.2014] CAS(E) this Sketch hits #100

Congrats CAS(E) this Sketch

I can’t believe CAS(E) this Sketch has hit challenge #100.  I was thrilled when Chrissy invited me back to help celebrate this milestone.  I was lucky to be apart of CTS’s beginning and I’m beyond excited to see that it still is going strong.  So, tet’s take a look at the sketch and get started.

When I saw the sketch, I immediately reached for patterned paper.  I knew I wanted that to be the major focal point for this card to mimic the bottom feature of the sketch.  Surprisingly, the first paper pad I grabbed was perfect.  I trimmed out this flourish from the paper and glued it down.  Next, I found the flower and circle stamps to mimic a similar pattern from the paper to accent and blend the trimmed out portion into the card.  I love how it was almost made to go together.  Yay.  Last, I added my birthday sentiment and some sequins to finish everything off.

I hope you’ll play along and celebrate the 100th sketch too.

    Me again Lisa. Did you use only the 3M Scotch as an adhesive to apply the patterned paper to the card or that plus the applicator gun? Thanks. Signed “The Newbie”.

      Hi Pam,

      I use tape adhesive (the big “gun”) for almost all things paper related, so that is what I used for the flourish at the bottom. I used the liquid adhesive (Scotch) to adhere the sequins. I find it easy to find, drys clear, fast and strong. 🙂

    What a great idea using patterned paper, mine was a similar idea, but I had a lot of trouble with mine! Love this striking design! Thanks for the inspiration! Hazel x
