Elegant Dots Dry Embossed Build A Birthday CASE Card Stampin' Up! UK

Welcome to a Fabulous Friday
Today is a super Quick card that I CASED )copy & Share Everything) from the new Annual Catalogue from Stampin' Up!
I have changed it up, as I use the creative ideas within the catalogue (of which there are just SO many), for those days when time is short, or I simply do not have a creative idea in my head for a particular stamp set)
I then make the card my own, by changing it up, so it is not a complete replica of the original. And that means you guys get two creative ideas for the price of one.

You can find the original Build A Birthday design on Page 25 of the catalogue.
I have used the new In Colours for today's project and  I also wanted to show you a different way of creating a banner sentiment.
The Duet Banner Punch, which is curves, as you can see in the photo.
Now here's the thing, Photo-polymer stamps are flexible; and that means you can shape them when mounting them onto an acrylic block .... it is one of those thinking outside the box moments that tends to fly out of our heads, because we see a straight sentiment and just assume it has to be stamped as a straight sentiment.
With the sentiment I used today (included in the Build A Birthday). I mounted the stamp in a curve, to match the curve of the Banner Duet Punch. And it worked a dream!!
Have a go for yourselves, and let me know how you get on.
