This week we have something a bit different and fun for you. We are CASE-ing a project from the page in the catalogue that is our age or want-to-be age!
You may have come from visiting Liz's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
This week, I'm taking a break from Christmas cards to CASE this project on page 45 of the Holiday Catalogue. I'll leave it to your imagination as to whether it reflects my actual age or want-to-be age lol. The number really doesn't matter anyway; it is all about how you feel in your head! I love this sample from the catalogue and pink and black is one of those classic colour combos that is ageless.
I've changed things up by converting the treat bag sample into a birthday card and using Berry Burst with the black and white check designer paper for an extra level of brightness. I deliberately cut the check paper so the white and striped checks were on the outside edges, to give it more of a pop against the black mat. I have placed this panel towards the left side of the Berry Burst card base, allowing the embellishment to flow over as it does in the treat bag sample. You can also see that I've embossed the flap of the envelope with the 'celebrate' from the Celebrations Duo.
This pic shows the embellishment in detail. I have taken a lot of the elements from the sample, including heat embossing the greeting from 'Birthday Blooms' in gold, which was then die cut with the Lots of Labels Framelits. I added a little piece of gold metallic doily at the bottom edge of the label and popped it up over a swirl of gold mini sequin trim and a strip of Berry Burst woven ribbon that was attached to the vellum scalloped circle. I finished it off with a Bitty Bow in Berry Burst and a sprinkle of gold metallic hearts.
For the inside I have a mat of Basic Black to pop against the Berry Burst card base. At the base of the writing panel is a strip of the check DSP topped with the spotty Berry Burst washi. I stamped the small flower from 'Birthday Blooms' in the top right corner and coloured it with Copic markers.
Finally, here is a view from the top, that shows all the lovely gold accents.
