Caseing Karen

Morning all.
Over at Cardz4Galz it's time for a brand new challenge.
This time would like you to -


There are lots of ways to do that, embossing folders, embellishments, textured ribbon etc.
For mine I kept it very CAS, using my favourite linen textured card, a pleated background and a stitched frame.

I took my inspiration from the Flower challenge where they are asking you to CASE a DT member. I chose Karen as I was intrigued by her background panel. As she did, I inked an acrylic block with DI and dragged it down the white card panel before folding it to get the pleated effect. The colour looks a little bleached out here but is much more textured in real life! The only suitable flower die I had was this Memory Box poppy one which I trimmed down and popped it between the panel and a stitched frame. The sentiment was from Altenew's Extra Special set.
For more textured inspiration check out the rest of the girls here.
