CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge – Sending Happy Mail

Hi everyone! I’m here with a card using supplies from the Simon Says Stamp July 2014 Card Kit. This card will be an entry for the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #83. Here is the sketch —

Instead of using the flowers and the banner sentiment, I decided to use envelopes and a bigger sentiment. Here is my card —

Sending Happy Mail

I started this card with some Taffy card stock from Bazzill cut to a standard size landscape card. I used the envelopes from the Sending Happy Thoughts set and stamped it on different pieces of patterned paper from Pink Paislee that is included in the kit. After cutting the envelopes, I lined the edges with a black marker and arranged it horizontally towards the top of the card in a staggered form. I adhered some of them with a Zig glue pen straight on to the card and the others using foam squares for added dimension.

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment stamps for the same set and stamped it in Delicata Golden Glitz ink. I love the combination of the Taffy card stock with the gold ink. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it is very sparkly in person.

To finish the card, I accented the envelopes with some Wink of Stella clear glitter brush and I also rounded the bottom corners.

For a complete list of supplies and tools that I used, please check the link-up tool below.

That’s it for this card. Thanks for reading.
