Happy Birthday, CSC #106

This week's challenge on the CASE Study Challenge Blog is to CASE yourself!  I really enjoyed making this money holder card last week so I decided to make another for an upcoming birthday.  Such a fun way to gift money!  :)

Money holder and the word "Birthday" are images from the Silhouette America store.  

Money Holder Birthday Card

Here is a money holder birthday card that I made for my son to give to his friend.  The money holder is a Silhouette America image that can be downloaded into different denominations.  Each denomination has a different cut that coordinates with the different faces of the bill.  I downloaded the $20 and $50 images, which gives me the flexibility to gift any amount over those amounts behind the top facing bill...hope that makes sense.  This was a super simple, no fuss, quick to make card!  :)

I adhered the money holder to the base of my card which gives me (or my son) a place to write a greeting to the recipient.   

Here is what the inside of the money holder looks like.

Happy Birthday, CSC104!

I was torn between two designers when I first played along with this week's challenge from CASE Study. I made this card the same night as I did the first one, but never got the chance to photograph it till now. The second Designer I chose to CASE is Aimes from Crafting Confessions.  Her work is very crisp, clean and simple.    

I think I was drawn to this card because of the eyelets...it felt like forever since I last used them!  Sentiment is from PTI - Think Big Favorites #12.

Here is a photo of the original card:

40 Amazing Years, CSC104

My husband needed a birthday card for someone at work today but didn't tell me till last night!  Since I didn't get to craft nor blog much this summer, I decided to challenge myself to a quick card hoping it'll get my "creative juices" going again.  This week's challenge at CASE Study is to CASE a card from any of the Design Team members.  They are all so talented how do you choose just one...that in itself was a challenge!  

I chose to CASE Debby Hughes from Lime Doodle.  I love her CAS style and her work is simply brilliant!    

Embossing folder, die and sentiment are all from PTI's By the Numbers impression plate and die collection along with Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.  

Here is Debby's Original card:

Thinking of you

Like a lot of people, I have a really hard time making sympathy cards.  This is a card that I made for a dear friend who just  recently lost her mom.  I wanted to keep it simple while conveying the message that we are thinking of her.  

Sentiment is from Hero Arts and patterned paper is from MME, Cowboy paper pad.

I will enter this card into two challenges:  A Blog Named Hero, Freestyle challenge and CASE Study Challenge Blog, 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop.
