CASE #7 - Comforting Hugs

Amidst all the challenges I've printed out for this weekend, I've also printed some cards I've seen that I want to CASE. This card was on the list, and here's my version:

My card was photographed at an angle (read: wonkier than normal)
because it refused to show the inside edge any other way. ;/ 

I loved how she had the three band-aids hanging over the trimmed card front, and that's what drove me to CASE it. I found some old old old Hero Arts Ocean Tsumugi notecards* and needed to use them. Unpacking can be so inspirational sometimes. :)

I trimmed off about 1/4" from the card front and put a piece of washi tape on the inside edge. I also cut a thin strip of SU Poppy Parade card stock to put along the front edge before I added the band-aids.

The band-aids were stamped with memento Black ink onto white card stock and colored with a Copic. I die-cut some hearts from the same Poppy Parade card stock and put those in the centers.

Since the card base is textured, the sentiment didn't stamp completely, so I used my Multi-liner to fill in a few spots. Also, the card stock isn't white on the inside, so I cut a white panel and put it to the left of the washi tape so the sender has somewhere to write a personal message.

I like it! Now if only I could come up with these ideas myself. Sigh.

Thanks for stopping by!

* I can't find any Hero Arts Tsumugi cards online, but I can find Tsumugi paper. Note to self: do not collect. I repeat: DO NOT COLLECT! 

Products used: SU Poppy Parade card stock, SU mini glue dots, HA Ocean Tsumugi notecards, misc washi tape, and the following:


  1. A) I love this card, those bandaids!
    B) do not collect...snicker.... :D

  2. That's adorable. Those little band-aids are so cute and I'm glad to see some washi tape making an appearance again.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
