CASEing the Catty - #CTC170 Tutti Frutti


This week we are headed to pages 28-35 of the Occasions catalogue.


I've chosen page 32 and the card on the lower left.


The base is thick Whisper White and a little larger than the original with a finished size of 5 1/2" square.  Mats of Basic Black, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White. The DSP is from the Tutti Frutti DSP stack.  In lieu of metallic thread I opted for foliage from Petals & More Thinlits using Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, I also cut the flowers using the same dies and cardstock. Usually I push out all the little bits, but have seen a lot have been leaving them lately and I like the effect it creates. The bottletops and hearts are Silver Foil cut with the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies. I punched circles from scraps of Color Theory DSP and Whisper White, then used the Bubble Over stamp set with Lemon Lime Twist for the words and they were also punched using 3/4" circle punch. The budgies are from Bird Banter and were fussy cut after being coloured with Stampin' markers. The greeting from the same set has been die cut with the Petals & More thinlits, and because it is a longer frame, I simply lined it up again closer to the words and popped it back through the Big Shot to cut just the one end. I have a 1" circle of Lemon Lime twist behind the greeting in place of the trim.  

This card was created with my Mother-in-law in mind - apart from the fact it was her birthday, she had recently acquired a new budgie. His name is Rico, and he is lovely vibrant colours of green and yellow. 


And a zoom in for you:
