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.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  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.
