Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty challenge!
If you've come from looking at the lovely project on Lauren's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today! You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.
I chose the card above from page 7 of the Second Release brochure for my inspiration. I really like the asymetric layout of the card.
I have a Thick Whisper White card base and I stamped the greeting from the lovely Positive Thoughts stamp set at the bottom in Gorgeous Grape ink. I added the Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Speciality DSP to the front of the card. I positioned the vellum over the card front and then marked on the left and right where I wanted it to finish and then cut between the marks.
I stamped 2 sets of the flowers from the Sale-a-bration Happy Birthday To You stamp set and then coloured them with Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers. Highland Heather was used for the flowers, Mint Macaron for the leaves and Daffodil Delight for the flower centres and berries. I chose to fussy cut them on the line (but there are dies available to crop them) and positioned them along the edge of the vellum. A sprinkle of the pretty Gold Glitter Enamel Dots is the finishing touch.
For the inside, I have a wide mat of Pool Party and then a very narrow mat of Highland Heather around the Stitched Rectangle writing panel. I've stamped the Maidenhair Fern image from the Positive Thoughts stamp set in the corners in Mint Macaron ink and added one of coloured flowers to the bottom corner.
We will need to send lots of 'thinking of you' cards in the next months as we are forced to stay isolated in our homes. Receiving a paper hug in the mail will be really important to our friends and loved ones. I will be making a few more of these cards in different colour ways to have on hand. The pretty So Very Vellum Specialty DSP is available to redeem as a Level 1 Sale-a-bration option until 31 March 2020 or while stocks last.
