Full of Gratitude ~ CASE Study #136


Hi everyone!  There’s a new challenge just up over on the CASE Study blog.  We are in the presence of CAS and technique royalty with J J Bolton from Ribbon Girls!  Here’s her next stunning card!


EEK! I remember squealing when I first saw this card last year on her blog…jaw dropping or what?  I thought I’d go for it and CASE her technique.  She was kind enough to share the process on her blog and I’m sharing my own, awkward, one…lol.  It ain’t pretty, but it worked!


As per JJ’s instructions, I picked out some coloured cardstock.  Then I cut out strips with my PTI rickrack die and stacked the strips on 3 different pieces of cardstock.


Next I cut the strips apart on the curve of the rickrack.


Then I played with the strips to form an eye pleasing pattern.  Next, I glued the pattern onto another piece of cardstock.  Then I cut the whole pattern out.  Not too bad for my first try, eh?  So, do you want to give it a try?  Maybe you’re just inspired by the colours, layout, sentiment or chevrons.  Whatever your fancy, join us this week!  Head over to the CASE Study blog or visit each of the Design Team Members directly on their blogs below and then join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting!

Not bad at all! I love how the ric rak gives the chevron pattern a bit of a wave! So cool!
