CASE a project from the VALENTINE'S section of the Occasions Catalogue
Now this doesn't mean that you must make a Valentine project, just use a design from this section as a springboard for your own project. I have chosen to make a birthday card, inspired by the shaker on the top right of Page 4:-
I have to admit to being very fond of interactive cards, so this shaker was an ideal choice for me, lol. There is a mix of old & new products including the sentiments from the SAB set Big Day. First I stamped with black Memento ink, omitting some of the details of the "celebrate" image, then made a second impression of the "celebrate" banner, which was coloured, fussy cut & popped up on dimensionals. The following Blendability markers were used for colouring the images - light Daffodil Delight, light Cherry Cobbler, & medium Coastal Cabana. I also got some nice red Baker's twine by colouring white twine with the light Cherry Cobbler marker.
I wanted a subtle frame beneath the sentiment circle, so I stamped the "Oh, Happy Day" image from the Starburst Sayings set in black Memento ink & die-cut it with the corresponding Starburst framelit. The "happy birthday" banner was shaped at either end with the Hexagon punch & attached with the coloured twine. A window sheet, Stacked with Love washi tape & Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay & Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper stars punched from the Confetti Star Border Punch complete the card.
