CASE'd Shelli

Shelli Gardner is the Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! and I was lucky enough to see her crafting on stage at the European Convention. She showed a version of the card and couldn't resist having a go myself.

The base of the card is Real Red. The Crumb Cake layer had the Fancy Flower punch out of it. Underneath that layer I use a piece of scrap card and covered it with Sticky Strip. (This is super-sticky tape) I was then able to adher 1/4" grosgrain ribbon strips onto the base card, the colours I used are Real Red, Certainly Celery & Marina Mist. Shelli actually used taffetta ribbon but I wanted a brighter look.

The Crumb Cake layer and the Real Red card base sandwiched the ribbon layer to create the card. I then embellished with a little button (sadly retired) that was knotted with linen thread. The leaves were punched from Pear Pizzazz CS as I couldn't lay my hands on a scrap of Certainly Celery using the Two Step Bird Punch.

I stamped a little greeting in the corner using Early Espresso ink with the Tiny Tags stamp set. Easy and cute!!

Hope you are having a good week. I am working on a video tutorial at the moment - just a slight hitch getting the video from the camera to the computer but as soon as I can I'll be posting my first one!! Keep your eyes peeled...


  1. I must have a go at this card simple but effective

    Looking forward to seeing your video!

  2. Your version is great, too! At least your ribbon is all the same width, not like mine! ;)


Thanks so much for leaving comments - reading them really does make my day!
