Catalog CASE Card Project
Enjoy Today… with Magnolia Lane. What a great simple sentiment for any greeting card. This one happens to be included in the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. I am going to be CASE-ing this card for you today. What is CASE? Copy And Selectively Edit. This card is shown in the Suite photo from the catalog. See it here along the left edge of the page, just below the beautiful Magnolia flower.
Magnolia Lane Suite Samples
To start we will dry emboss with the Magnolia 3-D embossing folder. I found with the folder, I did use the new BLUE embossing plate offered by Stampin’ Up! If you don’t have one yet, you will probably get better embossing results if you shim the folder with a layer or two of cardstock when you run through your embossing machine. But I found that the new plate worked wonderfully.
After we emboss the background layer for the front of our card, we will make the elements of the focal point with our stamps and coordinating dies. We will do a little coloring with our BLEND Markers and embellish it all with a sampler of our Magnolia Lane combo pack ribbon. One is a very neutral soft white linen color and the other is a Mossy Meadow thread.

Quick List of Products used in this project:
Catalog Highlight – a skinny tutorial of samples found in the catalog.
So how does my card differ from the sample in the catalog?
- Instead of stamping and coloring flowers for the focal point, the designers used the Magnolia Lane DSP and trimmed flowers from a selection to add to the card.
- The Designers stamped their sentiment in Old Olive Ink instead of Mossy Meadow.
- And stamped the flared image on a scrap of KRAFT paper with Early Espresso Ink
- For embellishment – Gold Metallic Pearls were added to the card
“It’s your card, make it your way!”
This is what I always say to my stampers in class and on my videos. Remember, when you are making a card, be it a CASE or a pre-made kit ready for you to stamp and put together. “It’s your card…” if you choose to use the supplies differently, go ahead. If you choose to change the dimensions or colors or embellish it differently. Good for you. Stamping and making hand-made cards should not be copy and paste! It can be, but it doesn’t have to be. “…make it your way!”
