Hey there! How was your weekend?
It’s winter here – which makes it the perfect weather for crafting! (and terrible weather for taking photos outside!).
This week for CASEing the Catty, we’re taking our inspiration from the layout on page 159 of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.
Before looking ahead, I actually made this card for a previous challenge as the styling & layout of this card appealed to me. When I realised it was perfect for this challenge, I kept it up my sleeve to share today.
I’ve recreated the striped background by swiping Stampin’ Blends (Pool Party, Smoky Slate & Calypso Coral) across a strip of Whisper White DSP. Using the straight edge die from the Nested Label set, I added the dotty border to each edge.
The middle panel is embossed with the Subtle embossing folder and a vellum layer added over the top. The bird & flower centerpiece is cut straight from the DSP. You need a little patience for the fussy cutting but the results are sensational. I find the cutting a much easier option than colouring!!!
I’ve finished the card with a DSP banner, Crumb Cake twine (Nature’s Twine) and a white embossed sentiment. Originally, the sentiment (from Itty Bitty Birthdays) was “happy belated birthday’ but I’ve trimmed it down to just be happy birthday. I love the font!!
Please join us on Facebook where you can add your card using the catalogue photo as inspiration for the layout. I can’t wait to see all the entries this week! Click here to visit the FB group.
Continue the hop to see what the rest of the design team did with this layout. Next up is my fabulous friend Siobhan Fitzsimmons.
Thanks for hopping with us. Have a great week!
