Did you know that cranes represent good fortune?

In today's CASE the Catty series I am going to feature the Crane of Fortune bundle in the new Jan-June Mini Catalog. I am going to show you how to take one of the catalog samples and add your own lil twist. I am also going to show you how to make a beautiful sun element if you don't have a sun stamp in your crafting room.
First, let's look at the Crane of Fortune bundle (click on the bundle image to order it at my online store):
Crane of Fortune
This product was on my first catalog order for two reasons - having traveled to Japan a few times, I now love all things with an Asian design. And there are so many cranes that I can see when walking by the canals where I love. Did you know that cranes represent good fortune?
The stamped images, including this elegant crane and dual chrysanthemum blossoms, will give your projects amazing texture and depth for a stunning focal point. And the sentiments can be used anytime you want to send your love and well-wishes.
The Good Fortune dies include the crane, gingko biloba leaves, and other intricate die-cut pieces that are sure to add texture and visual interest to all your papercrafting projects.
Now let's have a look at what the Stampin' Up! concept artists have created on page 24 of the Mini Catalog:

One of these samples here caught my eye - especially the sun element which I am going to show you how to create.
