CASE Study gets Moxie Fab...

peace love joy

Happy Friday-Eve! Friday-Eve today brings with it the start of a special month at CASE Study HQ. For the month of December we're embracing and celebrating the wonderful Moxie Fab World, and Miss Moxie Fab herself - Cath Edvalson. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, I'm sure you're aware that Cath recently stepped down from Moxie Fab World blog - but we're here to prove that she's still giving us the ultimate mojo boosts and we've picked a few of our favourite inspirational features to inspire us (and you!).

So cue a month of serious inspiration that you can incorporate in your creativity in an almost infinite amount of ways. This week, we're starting with this inspirational, trendy photo:

Check out the original post with this pic here.

I immediately wanted to go with peacock feathers for my project, but with Christmas crafting in full swing I needed to create a gift card holder so took the following elements from the inspirational picture:
  • The colours
  • The layout (my patterned panel of paper represents the angle of the fabulous, feathery skirt)
The result is a little envelope die cut from Papertrey Ink's Seed Packet Die that give a gift card a home. Perfect for those moments when I don't have a clue what to buy. Judging from my recent attempt at Christmas shopping, I'm going to need to whip more of these up...!

It's a pain to photograph my embossed sentiment, so here's a shot from a different angle. You get the idea, right? :)

peace love joy gift card

tips and tricks
  • I stamped the sentiment twice in a row to get it to fill the slanted angle of the design. This is handy when you don't have a sentiment stamp that you feel is long enough, or you have your mind set on using a particular stamp and need to make it stretch - almost literally!
  • Simply change the sentiment, and the snowflake embellishment to create a gift card holder for any guy (or gal) and any occasion. 
  • The Seed Packet Die holds a gift card perfectly, but you can go one step further and create the perfect minature coordinating card to put in this mini envie too. :)
So you know the deal. Be inspired by our inspiration pic, get creative and share what you create with us. It couldn't be simpler! For the ultimate mojo boost, be sure to take a peeky at what the rest of the super CASE Study DT created.

Well the chaos of Christmas is in full swing: I have next to nothing prepared apart from my cards. It seems like this year I'm really putting the pro into procrastinator. Ha!
