Hello and Goodbye Birthday CASE-ing Tuesday #353

These are the cards I made during this week’s Facebook Live video. You can watch it on replay on YouTube and Facebook. I go live on my Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page every Wednesday at 10:00 AET…but not the next 2 Wednesdays because I’ll be on holiday! I’ll be going Live again on 18 May…you can check to see what time that is where you are at this website.

Today I decided to play along with CASE-ing Tuesday, which is a weekly Facebook Group that presents a sample from a current catalogue to use as inspiration. Here’s this week’s challenge photo:

And here are the 2 versions I made:

I decided to feature the new 2022-2024 In Colors instead of the colour block Designer Series paper in the sample card…that’s the “Hello” part of my creation. Then, since I don’t have the Every Chapter stamp in the sample card, I used this sentiment from the retiring Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. That’s the “Goodbye” part.

My first card was as plain-and-simple as the sample.

But I’d also noticed that the sample’s DSP has some darker stripes of colour at the top of each colour band. I decided to re-create that effect with the beautiful Metallic Woven Ribbon in each In Color. The bow is in the card base colour, Starry Sky.

Do you have a favourite?

If you’re in Australia and still needing a copy of the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue just let me know and I’ll send one out to you!
