Two Posts in one!

Despite the best of intentions, sometimes things just get away from me.  I've just returned from a week in San Diego for work.  I was all prepared with my cards and pictures for my Tuesday and Friday blog post while I was away.  Well, almost all prepared - I had the cards made and the pictures taken.  Next time, I need to write the blog posts before I go away.  As usual my week of meetings and  catching up with colleagues from around the world (so much fun!) got in the way.  I did post last Tuesday, but you'll notice that Friday's instalment of Can You Case It is missing in action!

Today, I'm posting a double whammy!

First, Can you CASE it Friday (a little late), features a card from Page 36 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue.

I love the new Year of Cheer Suite of products with all of the lovely metallics and foils.

Here's my CASE of the card
I stayed pretty true to the card from the catalogue although added a few stamped snowflakes on the JOY banner.  I love the new Champagne Foil Sheets in this suite of products - it's a perfect blend between silver and gold!

Now, on to my regular Tuesday post :)

I'm continuing with my series of Birthday card - still have a few more to show you for my September and October family and friend birthdays.

Here's the card I made for my brother-in-law.  I love Garden Green, Pool Party and Early Espresso together and apparently so does Stampin' Up! as the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper includes the same colours.

For this card, I covered the Designer Series Paper with a layer of Vellum Cardstock and adhered it at the top only with 2 Glue Dots.  The Happy Birthday is cut using the Happy Birthday Thinlet die in both Pool Party and Early Espresso.  I carefully used Snail to glue the two pieces together.  Here's a tip for you - to prevent the Snail showing in the small places - lay your piece down on the Silicone mat and add Snail.  When you pull your piece off the mat, the excess Snail stays behind!
