A Modern Poinsettia...


Woop woop! It's Friday-Eve! You all know what that means....

Time for a fabby new CASE Study from our muse, Amy Sheffer! Just feast your eyes upon this fabby card up for CASEing:

Check out the original post of this card here!

So what did I choose to CASE on this beauty of Amy's? Well I just couldn't take my eyes of that pretty poinsettia so I opted to create a poinsettia of my own:

Happy Holidays

Oh Modern Basics, how I love thee! Even the 'happy' part of the sentiment is from PTI's Modern Basics and 'holidays' is a partially stamped sentiment from PTI's Stocking Prints. I love how two sets have combined to make a fab sentiment - that font makes me swoon a little y'know!

In fact, I had so much fun stamping that poinsettia that I went ahead and made a few more cards based on the same design like this:

Happy Holidays

Only I couldn't spare all the bling so opted for buttons in the centre instead :)

We'd love for you to join in the fun and ink along with us! Be sure to check out the rest of the CASE Study DT for some awesome inspiration:
