CSC #137 & CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Bash




Sharing my card for this week's CASE Study Challenge.  







The week's Muse once again is the incredibly talented JJ Bolton and an interactive card that was a winning submission for last years Paper Craft Magazine's Gallery Idol.




I was drawn to the bright colours against the white card base and the inverse die cut and use these elements on my very CAS design. I spaced out and laid out the 'hap' and 'y' leaving space for the other 'p' as I only had one.  I used some washi tape to secure the position while I ran it through the die cut machine.  Then I ran the other p through the machine.  I have enjoyed playing along with JJ's cards this month as it has pushed me to try some new techniques.  I am also submitting this to the CASual Fridays Birthday Base challenge.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White, Spring Rain, Berry Sorbet, Simply Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise, Winter Wisteria
Stamps: By the Numbers
Dies: Block Alphas
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
other: foam tape
