Today's card is CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from the Stampin' Up! catalog.  I changed the colors to use a couple of the new colors, but the layout is exactly the same as the card in the catalog.

It took me a bit of experimenting to figure out how Stampin' Up!'s designer created the tri-color background, and after I made mine, I figured out a much easier way to do it.  Do things ever work that way for you too?  After you do it the "hard" way, do you often find an easier way?  We learn as we go, right?  

The easier method will use a little more cardstock, but you'll end up with 3 card fronts rather than one.  So, if you are someone who likes to make multiples of the same card, then definitely use Option 2 on my free tutorial.  You can download a copy of that tutorial with this link.

After you create the front with the 3 angled color pieces, simply die-cut it with the Dots & Spots Die.  Layering the bright colors on the darker Night of Navy card base really emphasizes the dots.

The flowers were made using the Colored Embossing Technique that I demonstrated on a Connect to Create Video a few weeks ago.  If you missed it, you can watch the replay below.  

I love being able to heat emboss in any color!  The embossed colors seem to look a little brighter than images just stamped.

The layer of vellum below the flowers "calms" the bright dotted background just a bit to make the flowers stand out.  When I saw this card in the catalog (page 109), I knew I needed to CASE it!  What do you think of this layout?

Because the word dies included in the Love you Dies group some of the words on the same die, I ended up with all the words.  I only wanted to use the Love You on the front so the "so", "much", and "for" were left over.  I tossed the "for" and used the other two words on the inside of my card.  All the words were also created with the Colored Embossing Technique and Night of Navy ink, so they are nice and shiny!

The list of products used on the card is shown below.  For more information on any product just click on the image.
