Special Delivery

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a card that I CASE'd!  I was inspired by Kara's challenge over at K and R Designs, which I read about on my friend Petra's blog. The challenge is the Friday Inspiration File.  We were challenged to look through The File, choose a card that inspires us, and then CASE it!

I was inspired by this cute card by Tracey McNeely of In My Creative Opinion, added to the Inspiration File on Week 299.  Here is a direct link to her card.


I CASE'd it as closely as I could with the stamps and dies in my stash.  My card is not nearly as cute as Tracey's but I'm happy with how it turned out!


The little envelope is sealed with repositionable tape so it can be opened and resealed for a fun interactive element!  I tucked a little note inside the tiny envelope:


Here are all the products used:
  • Clear stamps:  Envelope (Waffleflower Happy Mail), tiny heart stamped on envelopes (Newton's  Nook Frozen Friends), sentiment on tiny card (Lawn Fawn Tiny Tags Sayings), tiny solid heart (Lawn Fawn Snow Day)
  • Rubber stamps: Special Delivery (The Artistic Stamper Carte Postale), heart postage stamp (Dollarama)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Love Letter
  • Dies: Envelope and heart (Your Next Stamp Mini Envelope Die)

I would also like to support these fun challenges: Crafty Gals Corner Shades of Red 2/2; Deep Ocean Hearts UE; DL.ART February Linky AG UE 1/d; Repeat Impressions Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge ~ F817 (red, pink, die-cut) 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday Young at Heart 3/5; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Cute 2/5; Stamped Blessings heARTful stamping For Special Someone plus Rubber Stamp 1/2; The Artistic Stamper Love Hearts 1/3; The Cat's Pajamas Happy Mail UE; Word Art Wednesday AG 2/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Love the idea of an inspiration challenge, and that it always turns out a bit different due to stash limitations! I really like yours, just as nice! :)
