CASE-ing the Catty - Adding a Male Twist
March 08, 2020
Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge!

It's week 2, CASE-ing a card from the January- June Mini Catalogue and giving it a male twist.
I chose the card abovefrom page 11 for my inspiration. I was drawn to the double frame and simple layout. Those critters are very cute, but I decided to pull out the products from the Country Club Suite for the first time.
I have a card base in Night of Navy and I added a double frame over the golfer image. I've cut one frame in Seaside Spray with the Stitched Rectangle Dies and a second smaller frame from the argyle patterned paper from the designer paper Country Club DSP pack. I like the window -like effect that it gives the image when they are adhered together and it also makes the frame more robust. To balance the frame I've tied some Garden Green twine from the Country Club Twine Combo pack around the left end of the card.
I have used one of the line images from the Country Club Designer Paper for my art panel. This is a great addition to the paper pack. This piece of DSP is designed to be cut into 4 horizontal strips of 3" and then each 3" strip is cut into 4" pieces. I have coloured the main areas with Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. You need to use a light touch as the paper is more prone to bleeding than Whisper White. I photocopied the image and create a mask so I could do some ink blending with Balmy Blue for the sky. The frame was popped up over the part panel for more dimension. The birthday greeting from Clubhouse stamp set is stamped in Night of Navy ink and cropped with the banner die from the coordinating Golf Club Dies. I've popped it up on a Garden Green stitched label from the All Dressed Up Dies.
For the inside, I have a strip of the designer paper on the right and I've stamped the golf ball image on the left and coloured it with Stampin' Blends markers.
