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):-
