It's time for another CASE study, where the muse is (me, haha, and specifically) this photo:
Just so you know, my matryoshka doll cards are probably still my fave. I may never make anything that awesome ever again.
It may be too hard to see from this teeny photo, but if you click over to the original post, you'll see that the sentiment on that banner reads "it's what's inside that counts." (get it? GET IT???) I sort of ran with that.
I hate to show up anywhere empty-handed, especially if I'm calling on a favor, so I whipped up a treat jar for my friend Philana, who's as lovely as the wrapping, and just as sweet as what's inside. (And by the way, what's inside is chocolate covered almonds - how's that for a something inside a something? I'm annoying like that. you're welcome.)
The original russian doll got a modern kind of makeover. I used circle dies for the head and head-wrap parts, tiny dot stamps for the eyes and free-handed the rest.
The jar was an old jam or something-or-other jar. Do you keep yours? I love having a bunch on-hand for gifting. I grabbed a minty-colored-cupcake-wrapper and covered the ugly lid before adhering my lady to the top and the sentiment all around. The little polka flag hanging off the side was for extra flair. ha.
I hope you like my CASE of myself! And, I hope you decide to play along. I loved seeing what you made last week and I hope to get around to commenting a lot more this week!
