CASE-ing Pia's Card, Shoe Card for Boy and a Vacation Manly Card

I knew Pia S. since I was joining Make it Monday Challenge....and it was a fun challenge cause we can commenting as much as participant and if we are lucky we got a prize bei commenting to another participant...and Pia was winning more than one....I won two times (grinz) but that challenge is now already closed :(( and since then we make this time I want to CASE-ing her card here it is the card I will CASE-ing:

 Here is PIA´s CARD not Mine :)

Here is what I come up, I did the same methode like Pia did. I took a Kraft Paper and gave embossing paste on my Hero Arts Alphabet Stencil. Let it dry and I work with my main Image. The sentiment this time is from Lawnfawn. (Best Pun Ever) and this card is really fast to make. (Only it was waiting time until the embossing paste dry)

One more picture of my card:

  1. Similar backgrounds and image, but still different. You did a great job caseing my card. I really like the texture from the embossing paste and I've always loved the look of white with kraft. Looking at your card I'm now considering to add a sentiment to mine before I give it away...

  2. Wonderful casing Monika! Black and white is my classic favorite color combo! Absolutely love it!

I love your awesome embossing paste background with the alphabet stencil and your shoes image is so fun and I love the masculine feel to it!! :) Such a wonderful CASE of Pia! - scratching my head as I'm not getting updates to several blogs now through my feed...yours is one of them. Really frustrating! Sorry if I miss this sweetie! HUGS
