CASE-ing the Catty #31 - Father's Day Section Inspiration

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty's Friday Hop!  Both the Stampin' Up! catalogues provide an abundance of inspiration for crafting & this week the Crew are CASE-ing a project from the Father's Day section of the Occasions catalogue to make a masculine project.  Maybe you have come directly from Alison's blog (if not, make sure you go check out her fabulous "Amazing Birthday" card!)

I have chosen to make a love/encouragement card:-


& here is my inspiration piece, from page 40:-


I love the clean lines of the sample, the white embossed sentiment which has part of the sentiment on a raised word window punch-out & the thin banner behind the sentiment.  I added a line of piercing either side of the centre panel (on both the inside & outside of the card) to accentuate the feature panel:-


The stars were sponged on using a dauber with the star template.  I used a favourite colour palette of Coastal Cabana (which is about to retire, sob, sob!), Crumbcake & Whisper White.


Just keep hopping your way around the blogs for lots of inspiration, but if you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of participating blogs on the CTC blog (here) 

Now on to Rachel's inspiring project (simply click on the graphic):-

So very clever of you Helen to CASE that layout, I don't "see" those sorts of things. Sponged stars look great on Pool Party.

This is such a perfect card...and your CASE is genius. Like Rachel said, I never 'see' these things either. I love the clean lines of your card and the stars. :)
