CASE-It Wednesday Candy Cane Wishes

Hey hey hey my friends! How are ya today? I have a fun and sweet CASE-it project for you today.  It comes from page 34 of the July-December 2021 Holiday Brochure.  It's the card that brought my eye to the Candy Canes Background Stamp. 

Maybe one of the biggest things that drew me to this card, is that it features one of my favorite techniques! I love the emboss resist technique!  You can get some really dramatic results (like with Joseph's Coat) or something more soft and subtle like this! It's so pretty and no matter how long I've been stamping, embossing always amazes me!

So if you'd like to CASE this card with me, here's what you'll need: 

* 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" Real Red Cardstock (scored at 4 1/4") for card base
* (2) 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" Basic White Cardstock for card front and inside panels
* 4 1/8" x 1 1/4" Basic White Cardstock for inside strip
* Scrap of Basic White Cardstock big enough to die cut the Stitched So Sweetly Label
* 4 1/4" lengths of the Real Red Ruffled Ribbon and the Soft Velvet Mint Macaron Ribbon
* Candy Canes Background Stamp
* White Emboss Powder
* Versamark Ink
* Heat Tool
* Water Painters
* Real Red, Mint Macaron, and Evening Evergreen Inks

If you'd like to watch how I made this card, you can see it here: 

First, I embossed the candy cane background on one of the White layers.  I stamped in Versamark ink and then used White Emboss powder.   On this card, I  wet washed color over the embossed piece with a Water Painter and the three inks (in sections).   In the video, I used blending brushes and showed the comparison in techniques.  So you can see both techniques side by side there.  I have trouble "waiting" for the paper to dry, so I used my heat tool to lightly dry out the paper (but not reactivate my embossing). 

I attached the embossed layer to the card front and then added a little Seal adhesive to the middle so that it would hold the ribbon strips to the top.  The sentiment is from the Encircled In Warmth Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red Ink on the Stitched So Sweetly diecut label.  It's attached to the card front with dimensionals. 

For the inside, I attached the 4 1/8" White Panel, and then attached the 1 1/4" strip that I had stamped with the candy canes using Real Red ink.  To get a visual of that, reference the video. :-) 

I hope you enjoyed this fun card! Christmas will be here before we know it.  ACK!!
