CASEing the Catty #3 Birthdays

 The Catalogue is always a great place for inspiration and I have been wanting to join in this new Challenge site but have only found time this week to jump in. This week we are asked to CASE anything form the Birthday sections from p42-59.
I love the simplicity of the design on page 55, and I absolutely love the new KRAFT cardstock so this was an easy choice for me. I have used the new Photopolymer stamp set Bordering Blooms in Wild Wasabi, and have used strips of both Wild Wasabi and Pool Party, embossed with the Delicate Designs embossing folder. The layered flower uses the Pansy Punch and Flower Shop stamp set in Strawberry Slush and the Blossom Flower punch behind it, while the Birthday Wishes sentiment comes from Four You. Add a little bit of bakers twine in island Indigo to finish it off. Easy! Would be a great class card.
Thanks for looking and check out the great Birthday ideas by the design team at CASEing the Catty 

This version is a narrower card and uses Lost Lagoon, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Sluch Twine which has been separated into strands- looks ok but is fiddly! And I have also stamped the flowers form Bordering Blooms on the inside. Not sure which version I prefer. Thanks for looking, Liz

  1. Both cards are lovely Elizabeth, possibly the first version is slightly ahead in my preferences. It's great to see all the possible variations from one design, and I agree, perfect for a class. Thanks for joining in at CASE-ing the Catty.

    1. Thankyou Rachel, yes the first one is my preference too - love the look of white ink on Kraft but I'm not quite able to pull it off yet! But then I do love Green too!

  2. I love the two cards you have created from the card design on page 55. I've just added Bordering Blooms to my stash and love what you have done with that gorgeous leafy vine. Thanks for joining us at CASE-ing the Catty.

    1. Thanks Bronwyn, you won't be sorry with the Bordering Blooms set, I love it, and I have another card to show soon using it with colouring in too.

  3. Elizabeth, I love both of your cards -- am starting to feel as if I 'need' that Bordering Blooms set!
