All Together – A Very Happy Birthday

Here we go!  Case-ing Tuesday Facebook Challenge (#343).  I chose to highlight some of the lovely patterns in the Black and White All Together Designer Series Paper available until May 2nd, 2022 or while supplies last.

Additionally, I was inspired by the AAA Card Challenge (#208), the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge (#295) and to celebrate with the Watercooler Wednesday team’s final challenge (#335) by wishing them all a Happy Birthday as they move forward in the next year!

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic Black cardstock.
  • Back Panel: (3¼” x 5½”) Basic White cardstock.
    • The sentiment, Happy Birthday, from the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with Black Embossing Powder, vertically on the right edge.
    • The left side of the panel (2¾” x 5½”) was dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Top Panel: (Approximately 2⅜” x 4”) Dotted Stripe patterned piece of paper from the All Together Designer Series Paper pack.
  • Circle: (2⅝”) Textured Dotted patterned piece of paper from the same DSP pack die-cut with one of the dies from the Layering Circles Dies set.
  • Edge Strip: (½” x 5½”) Gingham patterned piece of paper from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack tucked under the right edge of the Basic White panel.
  • In lieu of the two mini-strips shown on the sketch, I opted to use the ribbon element as shown in the sample as my pop of color.  I selected the retired (¼”) Basic Gray Shimmer Ribbon (in my stash – SAB 2018) and colored a (3”) piece of White Baker’s Twine with the Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blend.  They were tied together and added to the card.

I love Black and White.  Playing with patterns is always fun, especially when they “work” together. A decidedly more graphic take of the very feminine Catalog Sample.  I am very happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  1. Jolanda, this is fabulous! Love how you did your CASE, so perfectly pulled together! And very crisp sentiment! This is a perfect design! Thanks so much for playing at SU Only!


  2. Great card, Jolanda! I like the mix of patterns and keeping the colors confined to black and white makes all the patterns work together well. Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges!
