CTC191 – it’s Clean and Simple – Be Strong Be Happy Be You!

CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop
Hello and welcome to CASEing the Catty – Sunday Blog Hop.
Whether you’re joining the Hop here at CreativeJax with Jackie Noble, or if you’ve hopped on over from Julia at Hand Made by Julia Quinn – a big WELCOME! 
This week the CTC Crew is CASE-ing pages 142 – 153 of the Annual Catalogue which starts with the fabulous Nature’s Poem Suite and continues with an array of gorgeous stamp sets.
I have CASEd a card from page 149.
I was taken with the striking simplicity of the card in the middle of the page and have created my version.
ctc191 mini striped ribbon
As I’ve used the 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon which is thicker than the original cards Baker’s Twine, I’ve only put three ribbons. They also tie in with the three phrases of my sentiment
       Be Strong
       Be Happy 
       Be You
Here’s the card on its own.ctc191 be strong be happy be you
The mini striped ribbon is available in three colours – Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay and Poppy Parade.  I love how these three colours from the Brights Colour Collection go so well together. 
The card base is a standard A6. That’s 21cm x 14.8cm scored at 10.5cm – so half an A4 scored in half. 
The clean and simple sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set. Aren’t there some stunning images in this set?  I’ve used the one with three lines of text that are “reversed”.
Rooted in Nature
I stamped the sentiment three times – once in each of the ribbon colours and then grabbed my Paper Snips to fussy cut each one into the individual lines of text. Once they were cut apart I could use a line of each colour on my card – attaching them Mini Dimensionals.
