CTC 64 The Sky Is The Limit Label Closure Card

Welcome back to CASEing The Catty Blog Hops.  I am going through a very masculine phase at the moment.  Not sure why because I really love flowers & bright colours.  Today I've chosen to case a mixture of all 3 of the Sale-A-Bration Sky Is The Limit cards.

Here are the cards I am case-ing.

I know how vague that sounds but let me explain.  I wanted to use the brown from the top left card, the plane & sentiment from the bag & the label from the bottom card.

I was looking for a project for my stamp club ladies & stumbled across a Partial Die Cut Label Closure card on Pinterest. It was based on one originally by Linda Heller & was perfect for what I was trying to achieve.  I also wanted to incorporate the World Traveller embossing folder & show the technique of inking up the folder when embossing.

Here is what I came up with:

The card opens like this.  I wanted to cover the hole the partial label cut made so I layered a piece of Very Vanilla over the top. I also covered the back with another piece of Sahara Sand card stock. (I'm a bit OCD) 

I used the Happy Birthday from Guy Greetings for the inside. You could leave it blank as the label flap covers this area.   Creating this type of card involves only partially cutting the Label framelits 1" in from the right-hand edge to create a flap. I also scored this flap so it folds easier, but you don't really need to. 

Thanks for hopping along with us today.  If you would like to go back to Bronwyn, then click previous blog below.  To keep moving forward, be sure to click the NEXT blog button to see what the lovely Rachel is sharing with us today & to continue the hop.
