CASEing the Catty #67 - Birthday Bouquet DSP

Hello & welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty's Blog Hop!

Each week the Crew members will take inspiration from a section or theme of the current Stampin' Up Catalogues to create their projects.  The acronym "CASE" stands for "Copy And Share Everything" or "Copy And Selectively Edit".  :)

This week the CTC Crew are choosing a project from the Birthday Bouquet section of the Occasions Catalogue (p8-15) to CASE.

I was inspired by the card at the bottom right of page 8.  This card features three different Designer Series Papers from the Birthday Bouquet DSP pack.  Generally I don't seem to use a lot of DSP & you would would rarely find three different prints on a card I created, so I thought I would challenge myself to do just that.  I found a fun fold, called a quarter fold card & used that to create my project:-

You can find a video link to the construction method of these cards here.  Thank you to Jana O'Brien for sharing.  :)  I added print panels the entire length of each flap, so you can see more of the pretty DSP when you slide off the divine watermelon ribbon & open the flaps:-

This type of card would be fun to send to someone who has just moved house, with a message inside that says "thought you might like to open something other than a packing box!"  :)

I stamped the inside panel with a little chain of hearts to mimic the image on the bunting print:-

Here is the card that inspired my project this week (bottom right):-

If you are feeling inspired, we would love you to CASE a project from the Birthday Bouquet section of the Occasions Catalogue (p8-15) & link it up in the gallery at the bottom of this CTC post (simply click on the icon below).  At the end of each month, the Crew will choose a Winner.

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

What a great card - and a brilliant idea for the moving house/packing box sentiment!! I love your fold - and this is perfect for using DSP!!

Rachel Palmieri said...

How perfect for showing off some DSP , this card had me confused/ fascinated in equal parts. Glad you went outside your comfort-zone, glad you shared.

Rebecca said...

Oh, I love different types of folded cards so I shall be trying this out. I love that you have used this gorgeous DSP.

What a great way to use different DSP on the same card, something I need to try more often. Love the fold too.
