Welcome again to another round of CASE-ing The Catty. Each week the crew take inspiration from a section of a Stampin' Up!® catalogue. Currently we are all so excited by our Occasions catalogue, but this week is Valentine's and we might have CASE-d the Annual catalogue too. CASE is an acronym which stands for "Copy And Share Everything" and we hope by sharing what we have CASE-d, you'll be inspired too.
I've used this tilted-paper design before with this birthday card but I don't have a magic formula, I just place it and cut off the excess. The 6 inch square sheets in the paper stack might make this process easier I think, and there was a matching piece left over to line the inside too.
I've kept the card quite simple with the flower and sentiment stamped onto a 'no-fuss' circle, mounted on another white circle one size bigger. The sentiment is one of four from Balloon Builders, and a bonus is that two of the stamps can also get punched out beautifully with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, so that's two stamp sets you can use the punch with. I tied a strand of white baker's twine around the top card, and made a bow to finish it.
Strictly speaking this Going Global card isn't really a CASE, but an adaptation of the sample made at November 2015 Onstage in Melbourne, using products from the Going Places suite. After using it at Onstage, the paper stack,
World Traveler Embossing Folder and Going Global stamp set were all on my first order. My husband and I aren't the most sentimental of people. We don't celebrate Valentine's Day, I'd rather flowers for no particular reason and not over-priced arrangements, thank you very much. However, this card is the type I might give him on Valentine's Day (or for no particular reason).
This is a great product suite for masculine cards, and travel-related memory-keeping. I've been loving the other examples for Valentine's Day (or no particular reason) that have been popping up on Pinterest.
Starting this year we are doing a monthly challenge. If you have been inspired by any of the projects in the catalogue or on the blog hop, feel free to share with the linky tool at CASE-ing The Catty. A winner will be chosen and announced on the first post of the following month.
