Mini Catalogue Favourites? CTC#342

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues (Catty)

This week, we are CASEING our favourite project in the Mini Catalogue.....and I ask you, how can I have just ONE favourite?????  Eventually I saw a card that I had wanted to do from the very first time I glanced through this catalogue.  It is on page 56 and I love it's vintage feel and the gorgeous colouring with Stampin' Blends.  

  And I have CASED this card directly before.....

 but this time I created it with my new favourite fancy fold!!

  It's an open book fold and my card also features a sneak peek for a NEW Stamp set coming next year called In The Moment - this stamp set was a free gift from Stampin' Up! as part of an event I'm going too.  I am so grateful to the generosity of Stampin' Up! - it's so fabulous to be part of this great company!! You would totally love it too!!

When I saw this image I just KNEW this was made for my daughter - so this card is her 21st birthday card!!  Everything about it is perfect!!  

Now, what have I CASED from the original?   

I've used the same colours:  Soft Succulent, Crumb Cake, Soft Sea Foam and a pop of Poppy Parade.  I've also taken the central circle image and the vintage details of the card including the text in the background and texture on the edge of the paper.  I've also added similar ribbon detail under the main greeting and also a bit of extra ribbon under the main image.  I've also flicked Soft Suede ink with a water painter which was totally inspired by the card in the catalogue.  

The back of my card features a large writing panel with similar elements.  You can see some of the vintage elements here including the sponging with Soft Suede and a blending brush around the edges.  

Here's a video of  how I've made this card and the measurements in case you want to have a go creating it too!!  It's pretty easy and looks sooooo cool!!! 

Up next is the totally awesome Michelle!! 

Please join in the fun with us this week - what's your favourite Mini Catalogue project????
