Well, another week has flown past and it is time for the CASE-ing the Catty Crew to give you some more great inspiration for your festive crafting. This week we are looking at the 'Winter Wonderland' section on pages 22-45 of the Holiday Catalogue.
You may have come from Tricia's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can join the trail using the button at the bottom of this post.
I have chosen to use the 'Winter Wonderland' suite of products that are displayed on pages 22-24 for my card today. I have taken my inspiration from this photo on page 24.
I often find with specialty designer papers that I don't use as much as I should as I'm saving it for a special occasion (which often doesn't arrive, as I've moved on, lol). So, this is a great opportunity to cut into the very elegant 'Winter Wonderland' specialty paper.
Instead of a treat bag, I have created a card, following the layout of the sample pretty closely. I have mixed up the centre panel a bit, as I wanted my greeting to stand out a little more. 'The perfect blend of simple elegance and a luxurious touch of gold' describes the Winter Wonderland suite and hopefully my card.
The gold foil makes a luxurious background and the Softly Falling embossing folder adds gorgeous texture. I recommend that you go around the edges of the foil card with a gold marker if you have one. I use the retired gold Stampin' Dazzle marker to cover the white core and give a professional finish.
This photo shows the top part of the card close-up. I have used the gold striped washi to border the panel and the black crackle design in the centre. It makes a perfect background for the greeting, which has been gold embossed and die cut with the label from the Project Life framelits. I've added one of the wooden Snowflake Elements with a gold Cording Trim bow. Personally, I don't think rhinestones suit gold as well as they do silver.
For the inside, I've finished it off with some of the gold striped washi and the lovely greeting from the 'Embellished Ornaments' stamp set, heat embossed in gold.
