A CASE

Thursday, June 11, 2009

As I was making my daily visit to Kathi's blog, I was blown away by this card. I loved the beautiful simplicity of it. I knew immediately that I would need to CASE it. I like Kathi's card more but all in all, I'm pretty pleased.

I made the first card and then decided that I could make up a little gift set. I put 5 cards in the clear box from PTI. I decided to leave the outside of the box fairly simple. Just a strip of black cardstock with the continued button with ribbon theme.



***Supplies***
Stamps: CTMH Say it in Style
Other: Cuttlebug, Fiskars Punch, Button and clear card box from PTI, ribbon from my stash

But I don't know if it is cuter than the adorable birthday card you made for Isaac. It will go right into the scrapbook.

Oh my! I love your version, too! Kathi is SO creative (even though she says she isn't) when it comes to creating gorgeous "simple" cards.

I love that you extended the theme to create a whole set! Awesome!

This is lovely! A wonderful gift set. I might just have to lift for year-end teacher gifts (I'm a bit behind on that!)
