So glad your taking time to check out my blog today!  In the card making world we sometimes hear the word “case”.  What does that mean?  Case or Casing is when you see a card and copy it, most times you will change it up a little as in changing colors used, stamp sets used, die cuts used or using different Designer Series Paper.  When I case a card I always try to acknowledge the person that I got the idea from.  Just a good practice.  So with that said, for this card I actually cased the card in the Stampin Up® mini catalog.  So many of us keep our old catalogs because it give us a good base line for layout for cards.  
I had a team challenge to case a card from the catalog and this was my card.  It was a fun team challenge and great to see how each of us took the original layout and changed it up to fit either what we had in stock or simply just changing up colors!  This card was on the cover of the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog and I changed up the Designer Series Paper, colors, and the scene itself.
Here are the card cuts, instructions and supply list:

Die Cutting:

3.  Using the Windmill Fields Dies cut the following:

A.  Apply Adhesive sheets to the back of the 1/2 x 5 1/2 Blackberry bliss piece then cut out several fence pieces.

D.  From the 4 x 5 1/2 piece cut out both the Sold windmill and the Windmill blades.

E.  Cut out the clouds that you stamped in step #1.

F.  From the 1 x 5 1/4 So Saffron piece cut out the border tulip die. 

4.  Using the #5 Stitched Rectangle dies (or 4th from the largest) cut out a window from the 4 x 5 1/4 DSP piece.  NOTE: You want to place the die about 1/2″ from top edge and 3/4″ from right edge.  


5.   Adhere the 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 (Tulips) DSP to the bottom edge of the DSP sheet that has the look of sky.

6.  Remove the adhesive strip from the back of the bicycle then adhere the Die cut Bicycle flush to the top edge of the Tulip DSP about 7/8″ from left side. 

7.  Remove the adhesive strip from the back of the fences then adhere them flush to the Tulip DSP overlapping the Bike but leaving an opening as shown. 

8.  Adhere the clouds as desired. 

9. Using Dimensionals adhere the DSP window piece over the scene piece.

10.  Adhere both to the card front.

11. Adhere the detailed windmill to the solid windmill.

12.  Using a push pin and cork board, make hole in the top of the windmill where the small circle is.  Then attach windmill blades with small white brad. (Note: do not tighten down all the way – you want the blades to move)

14.  Adhere windmill as shown.
