CASE-ing the Catty #17 - Big Day Shaker!

It's challenge time at CASE-ing the Catty & this week's theme is to:-

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.

The rest of the CASE-ing the Catty Team have some fantastic samples to inspire you, so please come & join us at CTC (simply click on the graphic):-

I love a good interactive card too and this one is amazing. Love the colour scheme and the starburst frame, all those colour coordinated punched stars and your superb colouring.

Love this card so much. Especially like the way you introduced just the right amount of colour, and the starburst behind the greeting.
