a CASE of a CASE...
What do you do when it's too hot to go outside? Stamp! Temps today are supposed to reach into the high 90's in NH which means it's much too hot to do much of anything outdoors. I decided the best thing to do was turn on the A/C and enjoy a guilt-free day of stamping! *Mental note: using a fan in your stamp room is not recommended (I'll leave the visual up to you!).
Today's card was inspired by Chat's card over at Me, My Stamps and I. Chat's card was inspired by Mary Brown's card over at Stamper Camper's Corner - so I guess you could say my card is a CASE of a CASE!
To make this card more of my own, I kept the base color the same but changed the accent colors and sentiment. I also used the stamp set Solid Stripes. To make the stripes stand out a bit more I embossed them with clear embossing powder.
