Green and Gold and Purple, Oh My!

A few months ago, someone asked me if I would help with invitations for a birthday party, to be held in February of next year, that had a Mardi Gras theme.  When I first saw Justin Krieger's card, it was perfect for the birthday invitation.  So, I knew I was going to CASE (Case And Share Everything) it.

I wanted the traditional colors of Mardi Gras and with a little research, I found those colors to be green, gold and purple.  I didn't have a current sentiment stamp that I liked for my card so, I dug out my retired Define Your Life.  It's one of the few sets that I have kept from those that have retired since I've been a Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator.


Stamp Set:  Four Feathers, Define Your Life (retired); Ink:  Elegant Eggplant; Card Stock:  Elegant Eggplant, Wild Wasabi, Gold Foil Sheets, Vellum; Accessories & Tools:  Confetti Stars Punch, Four Feathers Framelits Die, Mustache Framelits Die, Chalk Talk Framelits Dies, VersaMark, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, SNAIL Adhesive, PEARLustre Amethyst Embossing Powder(non-Stampin' Up!®), Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine
All Stampin' Up!® Product unless otherwise noted.

This was a really fun card to make and I want to thank Justin for the inspiration.  Here is the card that Justin designed.  I love the black and orange he used.  Click on his name above or the photo below to see his blog post about his card.

  1. What a "delightful" CASE! Love that new starry punch. And what a cool use for the mustache die.

    1. Thanks, Jean. It was a clever idea Justin had using the mustache die for a mask.
