CTC 2018: Merry Christmas to All (Birthday Card)

Published by under cards | Dec 16 2018


What’s CASE-ing The Catty? CASE stands for “Copy And Share Everything”. It means we use the ideas and inspiration from one project and apply them to another to create something altogether new. Each Sunday evening at 7pm AEST/8pm AEDT the CTC Crew kick off a new Challenge using the Stampin’ Up! catalogues as inspiration.


This week’s challenge is to CASE our favourite bundle.

I chose the Merry Christmas to All bundle, on pages 4-5 of the Holiday Catalogue. 

In particular, this “Wishing You Christmas Cheer” card from page 4.  

I think this is a fabulous bundle of products, because they are much more versatile than first meets the eye. 

Think this is just for Christmas? Think again!

You can pair it with other words like ‘birthday’, ‘anniversary’, ‘retirement’ – and there are many more options – and you have a whole range of brilliant statements for the front of your cards. 

So, inspired by the card shown above, this is what I came up with: 

As you can see, the cards are very similar.

The layout is almost identical, with just a switch out of patterned papers (I used Animal Expedition) and the birthday stamp from the Soft Sayings Card Kit.


To continue on the hop, just click on the Next button below and you’ll be on your way to see the lovely project that Rose has made for us this week. 

Would you like to have a go at this week’s challenge? To join in, you can either directly CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or use a sketch/layout, colour combination or something similar, as inspiration for your own creation. Then simply take a photo of your project and upload it to the latest challenge album in the CASEing The Catty Challenge group on Facebook. Each challenge will end at 7pm (AEST) on Saturday before the next challenge is posted. We pick some winners each week, but most importantly it’s a fun way to get out of your creative comfort zone and try something new. 

Happy stamping,

    Great CASE Simone. I love how you’ve made this a birthday card and I love those cute little hippos

    What a clever idea Simone. Love those hippos on the paper too.
