I fell in love with more than a few of the projects in this month's Stampin' Success. Last weekend, I needed a couple of birthday cards for a couple of friends that are a couple (got that???). Her birthday was the 19th and his was the 20th --- and she is quick to let you know that she is 364 days younger than him. So, I decided to "CASE" a couple of them for my cards. "CASE" means Copy And Share Everything (I think that's right, anyway). I do this alot, especially when I am in a hurry to get something done --- or when I just fall in love with the card. Of course, you need to give credit where credit is due.
This card was done using the a la card template they have in the back. They give these to help come up with simple, yet striking, cards for workshops & classes. Stampin' Up is a great company if you ever decided to start a business --- they never stop helping you with tips to help build your business. I used the Sweet Pea DSP and felt flowers for this one. I really like that paper, don't you? If you remember, I also used it on my sister-in-law's card here.
This card was a CASE of one done by Shelley Bohan from Canada. I always seem to have problems coming up with cards for the fellas, so when I saw this one I knew it would be perfect for the gents in your life --- not too frilly, but still festive. No ribbons or bows to be seen. All products used on both cards are Stampin' Up, except I used another brand of embossing folder for the Tangerine Tango one. I also used several of the "retired" In-Colors that SU! will be bringing back as part of the new color renovation I spoke of. The base is Tangerine Tango and the blue is the Pacific Point.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Great Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
