CASE-ing the Catty - Holidays

Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are looking at the 'Holidays' section of the Annual Catalogue on pages 112-125. It is perfect timing as we are close to the 25th for Christmas in July. This may sound terrible for those in the northern hemisphere in the middle of summer, but perfect for us 'down under' experiencing a very cold winter. We will be taking the opportunity to enjoy a traditional roast dinner with trimmings this week. 

You may have come from visiting Angela'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'm CASE-ing  the card in the photo above, which is on page 118.  I have flipped the design to make it into a portrait style card and used one of my favourite Christmas colour combos of Real Red, Crumb Cake and white. I hope you can see the elements from the sample that I have translated to my card in a slightly different way.

I have used the 'Diagonal Stripe' background stamp to create the striped panel with Crumb Cake ink. I added a mat of Real Red and adhered it to my Crumb Cake card base. I have replaced the rectangular centre panel in the sample with a large Stitched Shapes oval  in Crumb Cake layered on a scalloped oval in Real Red. This forms the background for my popped-up Santa from the 'Cookie-Cutter Christmas' stamp set. I've used some of the retired Stitched Satin ribbon in Real Red behind the oval centrepiece and a gold bow at the top.

To keep with the brownish tones, I stamped Santa in Memento Espresso Truffle ink and coloured him with Copic markers, using warm greys for his gloves, boots and belt. I added some sparkle to the white trim on his suit with Dazzling Diamonds glitter, although it sparkles a lot more in real life.
