My friend Monika at Creative with Monika is celebrating her birthday by hosting a challenge to CASE one of her cards. Today is her birthday - Happy Birthday, Monika! - so I thought it was the best day to join in the fun! She provided several samples of her cards to CASE and I chose "Cute and Funny Card." However, rather than a plain white background as in her sample, I went with a stenciled background as in her "No Design Paper Card." I also wanted to make a it a manly card because this is Monika's specialty. I hope you like how I CASE'd your cards, Monika!
I sponged Crushed Olive Distress Ink using Simon Says Stamp's Screened Leaves stencil. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted's Flight of Fancy clear stamps and I heat embossed it in white on a black snippet. You will notice I modified the sentiment by replacing the word Special with Pig using my Dymo label maker - I wanted to create a pun! Monika uses a Dymo on many of her cards also. Keeping it masculine, there are no embellishments, and Hamlet is standing on a piece of musical washi tape.
