CASE-ing The Catty #132 – Birthdays
Are you loving the new catalogue or what!? This week the CTC Crew are featuring projects inspired by the Stampin’ Up Birthday images on pages 68 – 85. Similar to last week, I’ve chosen a fantastic card layout on page 82.
Super cute, right? Love this card. The colours are pretty and the layout is simple yet effective. Just to show how great this layout is, I’ve CASE’d it with a masculine feel. It was SO difficult leaving bling off my card, but I’m really happy with how it turned out.
To go along with my sea-themed card, I made an envelope using page 25 of the recently retired SU Occasions Catalogue. Regrettably I have a couple of copies left. So, I decided to cut up one whole catalogue and check out the envelopes you can make from it.
Well, it turns out you can end up with 28 beautiful, super fun envelopes! Ah, what a relief!! I hate the thought of throwing away retired catalogues, such a waste. The paper is lovely and thin, folds perfectly. To complete the envelope I slapped a sticky white address label on the front and now it’s ready to send!
Look, I might just be more excited about the envelope than I am about the pretty blue card. Is that terrible? A list of the supplies I used to make this week’s card are listed below.
That’s it for me this week. If you have more creative ways of recycling your old SU Catty’s I’d love to hear them!
