Inspired by Gift Packaging for CTC#155



Hello and Welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop Caseing the Catty.


We love to inspire you with new eyes when you look at our Stampin' Up! Catalogues as we Copy And Share Everything or Copy And Selectively Edit the fabulous projects illustrated for you in the fabulous photos in our Catalogues!!

This week we are CASEing any Gift Packaging from any Catalogue.  


And my inspiration comes from the darling little pizza box on page 44 of the Holiday Catalogue. 


Our son recently turned 21, and I wanted to create something special BUT, masculine cards are somewhat challenging (in my opinion!!!!).  So.......  when we had to CASE some gift packaging and I was browsing through the INCREDIBLE variety of inspiration, I had a light bulb moment!!  This little layout on the pizza box would work for me to create my masterpiece!!  


I've used Wood Textures DSP for the front and base and embossed it with the Pinewood Planks folder.  I then used the Champagne Foil sheets for my balloons (gotta have balloons on a birthday card for a guy) and for the starburst behind my numbers.  The Number of Years stamp set and coordinating Large Numbers framelits ALWAY get an amazing workout at my creative desk.  I've added some copper washi tape and copper trim across the middle of the card.  The greeting at the base of the card uses Banners for You for the banner and I have gently bent the photopolymer stamp around the curve for the greeting from Number of Years.  


This card is 6" x 6" with lots of room for all of us to write our best wishes onto his card.  So I have created a coordinating envelope with a swing tag at the front which features N for Nicholas.  


I hope you're totally inspired, and that you will join in the fun with our challenge this week to CASE any gift packaging from our catalogues.  Make sure you hop around to see the fantastic projects from the whole design team - you'll love them all! 



And please add your project to our lineup on our facebook challenge page!  It's super easy.  


Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping,
Love Julia   x

  1. What a great boy card! I think that the Wood textures dsp is a perfect choice! BTW, you don't look old enough to have a 21 year old!
