CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop - Love & Sympathy

Hi there

It's Friday evening again and time for the CASE-ing the Catty Crew to bring you more inspiration from the Stampin' Up! catalogues. This week we are looking at the 'Love and Sympathy' section on pages 19-30 of the 2015-16 Annual Catalogue.   

You may have come from Stasia's blog but if not, you can start here and hop over to the next blog using the button at the bottom of this post.

This week I have taken my inspiration from the card at the bottom of Page 20. I've been wanting to try out the sweet ribbon treatment on this card for ages, so I decided to case the layout to go with it. I love that this card is very clean and simple with lots of white space and my version is bright and cheery as well, which I think is perfect for a 'get well' card. I have used a selection of elements from a range of stamp sets. 

CAS Get Well with 'Everything Eleanor'

After stamping the flourish from 'Everything Eleanor' I added a strip of 6mm double sided tape to the edge of the Whisper White card stock.  Start at the bottom placing the Melon Mambo ribbon on the tape for about 2cm  (leave a short tail to fold under the card) and then fold back the ribbon for 1cm and then forward another 2cm to create the pleat. Do this 3 times and then continue the ribbon to the far end of the card. Cut the ribbon and fold it under the card at each end. Create and attach the bow in the centre separately with a glue dot. I used a glue dot to hold down the first pleat, but the rest stayed in place without any adhesive.

This is how I finished the inside of the card, using a strip of the Bermuda Bay washi tape from the 'Cherry on Top' set.
