CASE-ing the Catty 219 – Gingham Gala

CTC Header

Hello and thanks for joining me for another slice of CASE-ing the Catty this week. You’ve probably hopped on over from the most fabulous Kelly Kent and her gingham beauty. Don’t forget to follow the link at the bottom of each post and keep hopping along to see all the beautiful projects this week.

My CASE this week combines several of the elements you can see above. The layout of the box in the center, the square cards, and the multiple colours of gingham used have all inspired my project.

Now you all know by now that I am mad for the Butterfly Gala stamps and punch that is featured in this section of the catty, and I tried really hard not to make another butterfly project lest I bore you all, but I’m afraid I failed at that. I just can not get enough of these beautiful creatures.

As SAB enters its last month there are even more free goodies to get with every $90 purchase you make. In this week’s project I have used some of the extra SAB items as well – personally, I love the chance to stock up on some Annual Catalogue favourites.


 This little box is in fact comprised almost entirely of freebies – the mini pizza box itself, the pearlized doily, the label from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, and the butterfly cut from the Butterfly Gala DSP are all available as SAB rewards.

The star of the show however is the Gingham Gala DSP.


 I’ve made a set of four 3 x 3″ notecards and envelopes in Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Lemon Lime Twist, and Daffodil Delight. Each card base in matching colour has also been run through the Subtle Texture embossing folder for some, well, subtle texture.


 The rest of the card is made up of a panel of gingham DSP, stitched circle of vellum, a butterfly pair stamped in matching ink and punched, and a strip of Whisper White with a sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set, also stamped in matching ink.


 I do so love to have a little matching set of cards in a pretty rainbow of colours like this. Especially when they have a pretty matching box to fit neatly inside of. These sets are perfect to give as gifts to people – a gift that keeps on giving, as they can then give the cards to other people.


 Don’t forget to join in the challenge this week and show us your CASE on the challenge Facebook wall, via this link.

    Super super cute. Love the rainbow of colour. Love the pizza box. The coloured butterfly is beautiful.

    Fabulous set- there’s something appealing about the same design in different colours isn’t there. And I love the feature butterfly on the share What You Love Label- brilliant.
