CASE, I think, means Copy and Share With Others. Well, I've been eyeing this card in the Sale-A-Bration catalog for weeks and weeks and I just HAD to make one myself. I thought this was going to be so simple. The instructions were simple, but believe it or not, I FUSSED WITH THIS DARN FLOWER FOR WAY TOO LONG! It's not as easy as it looks, but then again, is anything really?
Well, I thought this was so beautiful and bright and cheery that I had to make one for my husband's Nana who is celebrating her birthday today, but in the hospital, unfortunately. We think she'll be home in a few days and then we can celebrate this weekend, yay.
So, even though it looks like I copied this right out of the cattie, I did change a few things; I scallop punched the edge of the flower, I changed the middle by using a build-a-brad and the center of the circle stamp from the Polka Dot Punches set. I changed the stem and the sentiment and the way it's attached. And now that I've listed these subtle changes it makes me feel better to know I'm not a copy cat!
I made this accordion flower by using a 12in strip of Delicate Dots dsp 1.5in wide, ran it through my scallop border punch and feel it's still a bit too wide so my next one I think I will make .25 in smaller and see if it makes a difference.
