CASE-ing the Catty - Fancy Frost

Hi there

Welcome to the CASE-ing the Catty blog hop for this week, where we are looking at the 'Fancy Frost' section of the Holiday Catalogue. This gives me the opportunity to ink up some stamps I haven't used yet.

You may have come here from Simone's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post.

This week I have taken my inspiration from these projects at the top of page 36 of the Holiday Catalogue. The 'Frosted Medallions' stamp set is flexible for a number of occasions, including weddings, birthdays, Christmas and New Year. Even better it will discounted 20% for the Online Extravaganza sale that commences tomorrow, 21 November.

My first project was inspired by the card at the top right.  I have white embossed the medallion on vellum card stock and backed it with a slightly smaller circle of Soft Sky card stock before layering on Sweet Sugarplum embossed with the 'Sparkle' embossing folder. Underneath the circle is 2 strips of the Silver Glitter ribbon slightly overlapped. The Sweet Sugarplum panel is matted on Silver Foil and the whole panel has been popped up on the thick Whisper White card base.

Here is a close-up of the embossed medallion. It stamps and embosses beautifully. I love that this sentiment works equally as well for a number of occasions. You can put another greeting for a birthday, anniversary or wedding inside the card.

For the inside, I added a strip of the Silver Glitter ribbon and some coordinating flowers to finish it off.

I then decided to make a coordinating gift bag to go with the card. It maybe difficult to see, but I stamped the large medallion with Versamark ink all over a sheet of Soft Sky card stock before scoring and making up the bag. I have cut and embossed a Sweet Sugarplan banner and attached the die cut silver embossed medallion. The retired Circles Collection framelits work perfectly with this stamp. I punched some holes with my Cropadile to thread through the Silver Glitter ribbon.
