The CTC Crew are back into the Occasions Catalogue this week, taking inspiration from the 'Falling in Love' Suite on pages 50-54.
You may have come from looking at the fab project on the blog of the lovely Kelly Kent, 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'm looking at page 54 of the Occasions Catty and CASE-ing the package at the bottom of the page. I've created a girly friendship card using many of the design elements from the sample.
My base card is Sweet Sugarplum and I've layered on a piece of the butterfly design from the 'Falling in Love' designer series paper. I added a wide panel of Sweet Sugarplum card stock that has been embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder, as a background for the vanilla lace doily. This is a deeply etched design and I recommend you spritzing the back of the card stock first before embossing to prevent the card stock cracking.
I've stamped the lovely friendship greeting from the 'Suite Sentiments' stamp set and heat embossed it in gorgeous gold, which shows more clearly in the pic above. The second largest of the stitched ovals from the Stitched Shapes Framelits was used to crop it. When using Very Vanilla card stock for a label, I recommend adding an extra layer behind to make it sturdier, particularly if you are going to pop it up on foam pads as I have done.
This closeup shows all the texture and dimension from the embossing and embellishments. For the inside, I've used a piece of the butterfly designer paper as a mat to the writing panel - an error in cutting for the front re-purposed! I added the sweet butterfly from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits cut in gold glimmer in the top right corner and a very narrow strip at the base to tie it all together.
