Each Thursday my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from the US and I take turns creating a card that we CASED from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. CASE means Copy And Selectively Edit. The beautiful projects by the concept artists from Stampin' Up! are a great way to be inspired! When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colors or the stamp set or both.
In my card today I changed up the stamp set from Prized Peony Bundle to Simply Succulents Bundle, a new bundle in the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue. The bundle includes the Simply Succulents Stamp Set and the Potted Succulents Dies. When purchased together you save 10%!

The dies are beautiful, especially the large open image frame which can be used as an overlay or a stencil!
