colourQ's 2nd Birthday CASE a Queen Challenge #104...

The card I chose to CASE is cQc#74 - Thanks Lindy G for your inspiration!


What a great challenge! My oh my, I had a real tough time trying to choose which card to CASE - they are all so amazing!  However, I am quite the Inchie fan and this card caught my eye so I figured I would give it a whirl.  Christina did a fantastic job on her card, which inspired me even more!

I wanted to try give the card some depth so I started by embossing white cardstock with the Swiss dot folder. I then punched out 1" squares, then punched various shapes within the inchie, then popped the inchie up on to the required colors of cardstock. I used DMC embroidery cotton to make my grid lines. I tried several different embellies in the upper left hand corner but settled for a simple salutation as anything more was just too much! 

All supplies are Stampin Up with the exception of the punches (Walmart, I think) and the DMC cotton.

My post would not be complete without a GRRRRRRRR!!!! Seriously, I took over 100 pictures in every imaginable space in our house AND yard (the neighbors must think I am nutso!) and I had to settle for a 'practise shot' because it was one of the few pictures that showed the details! I am actually showing two photos in an attempt to get a good picture!


  1. Your card is beautiful, Geri! Love the embossing on the white, the design so pretty! Thanks for joining us for the two year anniversary at the ColourQ.

  2. Love your card. The punched wholes are a great idea!

  3. This is just darling, Geri! I love the texture and dimension you've added in a whole new way with your dry embossing & dimension. Thanks for playing at colourQ this week! :)
