CASEing the tutorial Global SU Share Fair Blog Hop!

How fun - this month our Global Share Fair presenters are CASEing the tutorial cards from our Global Share Fair in January 2021 and giving them a Holiday twist!  I chose to case this beautiful card from Sandra Roberts - giving it a Thankful Flare for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday! This card was so cheery and summery - so let's see how I can switch it up.

So what do you think of the card below - same fold - same layout - same decorated envelope - completely different look! Right?!?

Taking the base to a dark Evening Evergreen from the red was my first step - and using darker tones, include the cork DSP really made a difference - 
I used the Sparkle of the Season set and coordinating dies - adding a sentiment and some of the pinecones to the inside of the card.
Next I stamped my outside sentiment "GRATEFUL" on a little strip of Basic White, flagged the end and using a bone folder made this curvy banner.  I added two dimensionals under the upper curve to help it keep it's shape and glue dots at the lower points to secure it.

Next I stamped and die-cut branches, pinecones and a little pumpkin to finish off my wreath!  As well as some of the metallic dots (I colored them with my Evening Evergreen blend so they would match) to add just a touch of whimsy.
Finally I finished off the envelope just like Sandra did with a strip of cardstock (crumb cake) and a strip of DSP - in my case the cork; and I added the cork DSP to the envelope flap.  I probably would not send this through the mail, as the cork has a lot of dimension and might get torn off the envelope - but for hand-giving - it is such a pretty card.
I hope you enjoyed this card and the transformation my CASE did for it - hop on through and see all the other great samples - and be sure to comment and let us know when you think!

It is amazing how changing paper can change the season of a card. This is beautiful for autumn

Thanks for the tip on using the Blends to color the metallic dots. It really adds a nice detail.
