Merry Christmas! I wish you and your family the very best of the holiday season.
This week in San Diego has been amazing. It's times like these I realize that we live too far away from my sister and her family. The kids are growing so quickly and I would love to see them more than two to three times a year. I can't thank my sister and her husband enough for such a wonderful family Christmas.
This week's card certainly got me out of my comfort zone. I am not into messy crafts. I may make a mess in my craft room on a daily basis, but I don't like messy crafts. I especially don't like powders - embossing powder and Brusho are on the top of my list. It's really a texture thing...and the fact that it gets all over. But...if use the 12" x 12" backing that comes in a pack of designer series paper and use some washi tape to tape your paper to it, you can pretty much control the mess. And, you get the added bonus of not having your paper curl up when it gets wet.
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday group?
Makeover the card (pictured above). You can change a lot, a little or make the card just as it is in the catalog. Then post it to the Facebook thread. We can’t wait to see your cards. You can use the following hashtag if you post your card elsewhere on Facebook #CASEingtuesday179.
Hint: When working with Brusho, use a larger piece of cardstock than is necessary. This not only gives you margins for when you secure it with the washi tape (see above), but it also allows you to have a bigger surface to chose from when cutting your layer.
