CAS with four layers...?!


TGI Friday-Eve, Peeps! :)

Oh yes! We have one seriously fabulous card from our muse, Jen Rzasa, up for you CASE Studiers this week.

Check it out:

Check out the original post of this card here!

Butterflies - check! Negative space - check! White space - check! Me likey? You bet'cha! :)

Taking all those gorgeous features into account, I was totally inspired and set to it:

Many Thanks

I'm also entering this card into the Die-Cutting challenge on Moxie Fab World too; seemed rude not to after I've been playing with my dies for this card :)

This card has 4 layers. The most I think I've ever used whilst still keeping to my CAS roots!

This 4-layered CAS card (still feels wrong saying that!) was also inspired by Jen's fabulous challenge over on the Runway Inspired Challenge Blog:

I was totally inspired by those stripes, the circles on the catwalk (well, I incorporated one circle but it's a nod in their direction!) and the way that outfit almost looks like a butterfly (especially the lower half of it - a simple gust of wind would probably have that model flying away! LOL!)

So there you have it, a card inspired by Jen twice over :)

I hope you can ink up and play along with us! Be sure to check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT inked up for ya:

Sorry it took like...forever for me to finally comment on your card! I love so much about it- the square shape, the simple butterfly, and the fancy font of the sentiment. A few other people combined the RIC and CASE study challenges this week, and it's so surreal/exciting for me to see what everyone made! I'm so flattered! I hope you are having a great week. Bye Aimes! :)
