CASE the Catty Day 4: Rooted in Nature Thinking of You Card

Today is Day 4 of my CASE the Catty week!  My card today is based on a card from the Notes of Kindness card kit.  I LOVE this kit!  It has gorgeous colors and designs.  Here is a picture of the four different cards it makes:

The card I CASE’d is the one in the top right corner.  This time, I copied the basic design, but substituted different colors and embellishments, as well as sentiments!

For my card today, I used a Sahara Sand card base and Very Vanilla as my main background color.  I also used Soft Sea Foam and Soft Suede. It’s such a soft, neutral color palette, with just a bit of bold color from the Soft Suede!  I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set for the leaves, tree cross section, and sentiment.  I also stamped some spatter pattern all over the background using a stamp from the Touches of Texture set, which was stamped in Sahara Sand to match the base!  The sentiment piece was fussy cut with Paper Snips.

For embellishments, I added some vellum leaves, which were made with the NEW Sprig Punch from the Holiday Catalog, as well as some Pearl Basic Jewels and Linen Thread.  Before adding the pearls, I colored them with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker to match the Very Vanilla background.  The Ivory marker is perfect for adding just a hint of color to the pearls so that they are not so bright white!  Did you know that Stampin’ Blends in ANY color can be used on most of our embellishments?  You can basically create embellishments in any color you need!  (Well, as long as it’s a current Stampin’ Blends color!)  It’s just one more reason why the Stampin’ Blends are so useful!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Sahara Sand card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half)

Very Vanilla background layer:  4 x 5-1/4 inches

Very Vanilla sentiment piece: 2-5/8 x 2-5/8 inches (approximately)

Vellum sprig punch pieces:  1-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches

 

I hope you like my card today! Please check back tomorrow for another CASE the Catty project!
