freestyle collage - a CASE of myself

DS's girlfriend just celebrated her graduation and a card was in order. I decided to CASE myself and do a freestyle collage on this one cuz horses are a huge part of this gal's life. And I love my little horse hoofprint stamp!

Pulled out a Heidi Swapp watercolor themed 6x6 PP and die cut Technique Tuesday "Say It -hello" and Memory Box Parker Alphabet "abi"(which is short for Abitur, the A levels) from PPs. Die cut Papertrey Cloud from the creme colored cardbase and then stamped and masked the rest.

Used Viva Decor Rose. Technique Tuesday Alphabet. And my no name horse hoofprints (from Aldi). BTW, the triangle pattern on the vellum snippet is Kaisercraft Texture Triangle. It's great for adding that "little extra touch". Added the date stamp to personalize the card even more.

I did photograph this one flat too, but ended up liking the stand up image better. Seems to show the dimension better... What do you think?

I'm playing at:
Pinspirational - #194 (gave me a push in the color direction)

Time Out - Celebrations (graduation)
Inkspirational - Rural (cuz... hoofprints!)
Creative with Stamps - Celebrate

Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend. We're finally enjoying some nice summer weather here in my neck of Germany. Hope it continues! Thanks for visiting.


  1. Love what you've created! Never guessed they were hoofprints.. somehow it just looks like a part of the design, nothing else! Love the neat design of the card (and the one that you have CASEd too!)
