This week at work, one of my colleague’s is celebrating 15 years with the company! That’s a long time these days for someone to stay at the same company. We had a morning tea to celebrate, but I thought it would be nice to make a card to celebrate the occasion.
I decided to make a card using the CASEing the Catty challenge this week which is #CTC171 Sale-a-bration. Sale-a-bration ends on Saturday 31st of March, so you only have a few days left to get your free items or to join up as a team member with the bonus 2 free stamp sets of your choice.
I decided to take my inspiration from pages 16 & 17 of the first Sale-a-bration catalogue and used the Amazing You stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. Rather than stamping the flower image over the entire front of the card, I decided to keep it around the edges and stamp the sentiment directly onto the card.
I stamped the “Celebrate” sentiment and the flower image in Tangerine Tango, and stamped the flower image twice before re-inking it to give the different shades on the card. The “YOU” was cut out in Silver Glimmer Paper using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies, which will be carrying over into the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue, so why not grab them for free now, rather than having to buy them from the Annual Catalogue. This was all mounted onto a Tangerine Tango card base.
A simple card, however I think it is fitting for the occasion.
Until next time, happy stamping
