Here’s my last catalog case (for now!) from page 139, using Polka Dot Pieces. The catalog did some sewing on the bottom of the card. I chose to machine stitch a piece of Craft card stock and then adhere it to the front. Instead of just a piece of washi tape, I put mine across the entire front. The ribbon on my card was Blushing Bride 1/4 cotton that I ran over my Cantaloupe Crisp ink pad. I should have started with Whisper White ribbon – but the Blushing Bride worked. I think I’m going to LOVE this ribbon!

This catalog case is from page 163. I stuck to the card shown with just a few exceptions. First of all, I embossed the Shimmery White card stock backwards. I’d like to say I did it on purpose, but….well….you know how it goes! So I just went with it. The funniest part of this story is that my embossing folder had been used repeatedly with Versamark and glitter – which wasn’t completely cleaned off – so it left a beautiful soft glitter/sparkle all over the front of the card! Love it when that happens!!

I really like how soft this card looks – though I’m not sure I can recreate the sparkle again. Hugs, Fran
This is a semi – case card from page 109 of the catalog. That card features Just Sayin’ – I mixed it up by featuring Hot Diggity Dog instead. Instead of embossing the card front, I used a separate layer (5 1/2 x 3 3/4) of Smokey Slate, embossed it and adhered it to the front. I tried a Whisper White circle for the little puppy but ended up using Crushed Curry for more color.

Do you like Minions? This is what I thought of when I first saw the new stamp set What’s Your Type! He’s stamped except for his eyes, which are punched. I stamped the body and arms separately and then put it together on the card.
