Can You Case It? (CYCI) Black, Red, and White Color Challenge


Good morning folks.  Got up today at 11:00am.  That NEVER happens.  We saw the new Walking Dead episode last night (great one, too, if you watch) and then I proceeded to toss and turn almost all night! It's either the zombies or the fact that I have too many projects in my head that need to come out!  LOL

Today's card was made to enter into the black, white and red color challenge over at Can You Case It? 


How to make the card:  

Make an A2 card base out of textured red cardstock.  Adhere the black cardstock to the card front.  Then adhere the white cardstock to the black.  Using your die cut machine, cut and then emboss the Typewriter die out of black cardstock.  

Cut a piece of red cardstock with the 4th largest die from the Pierced Rectangle STAX. Adhere the 1.75" x 3" white cardstock to the piece you just cut.  Place a piece of double sided tape at the bottom (don't remove the top piece yet).  Now, slip this piece through the typewriter so that it sits just above where the keys start (look at the back).  Make three marks with a pencil so that you will know where to stamp your phrase.  Remove the piece and, using a stamp positioner, stamp your phrase.  


Then stamp above the pencil lines.  Erase the pencil lines, remove the adhesive to the double sided tape, slip it back into the typewriter. 


Apply some pop dots to the back, above the keys, and some glue to the area around the keys.  Then glue to the front of your card.  Adhere the keys area first and then push down. The area with the pop dots will bend to give you some depth to the typewriter.



Now just adhere a piece of 4" x 5.25" cardstock to the inside - to write on - and give it someone special!

Hope you liked this card.  Let me know what you think!
