For Nancy


Hi everyone.  It's the start of a new Queen for the Day challenge at SCS (QFTD176).  This week the challenge is to honor a previous Queen with the initials M through O.

My dear friend Nancy is one of the previous Queens that I want to honor.  I CASE'd this sweet card that Nancy made last year.  I kept the same layout, and used the same embossing folder, but changed the focus of the card to a friendship card.

Here's a close-up:


I used the "You" die from Simon Says, gluing it to my card front just along the long, vertical piece on the Y ... this leaves the rest of the word loose and adds more dimension to the card.

Easy, peasy CAS card that was so much fun to make!!



Stamps:  All About You (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs), Red Glimmer (SU!)
Ink:  Real Red (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Adorning Accents embossing strip (Sizzix for SU!), You die Simon Says, Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue, adhesives, and dimensionals

  8. This is awesome Loll! I love the cas design, and subtle tone on tone texture. I often use texture like you have in place of a patterned paper...because although I hoard it I don't always know how to use it lol
