Happy Friday!! This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog we are CASE'ing cards found in the Stampin' Up! catalog. Do you have one? Because it's not only a great resource for all of the products that you can purchase, but each stamp set has at least one sample project featured and it provides tons of great inspiration. To show you how versatile the catalog is, we were tasked with CASE'ing a card for our projects this week for Fabulous Friday. I chose a Christmas card from page 35 featuring the Reason for the Season stamp set and totally changed it up to make it a birthday card...
I loved the simplicity of this card layout - only a single layer under the focal image and sentiment which is stamped on a label die cut with the Big Shot. I used the Balloon Celebration and Stylized Birthday stamp sets for my monochromatic card.
Here is a close-up of the label. I used Bermuda Bay ink for my balloons and early espresso for the sentiment. Cutting out the balloons was super-easy with the coordinating balloon punch!
Here's one more view of the card. For even more catalog CASE'ing inspiration please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
