CASE-ing the Catty - Sweet Soiree


Hi there

This week the CTC Crew are taking inspiration from the Sweet Soiree Suite in the Occasions Catalogue. Not got your own copy of the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues yet? If you are located in Australia, just leave your details here and I would be happy to pop a set in the post for you. 

You may have come from visiting Jackie'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 taking my inspiration from the gift box in the photo above, turning it into a card instead. It uses two of the designs from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper.

I have closely translated the layout of the box to my card. I started with a piece of Whisper White and added a strip of the Old Olive and Silver striped paper to the top and butted up the large floral design to the bottom section. To soften the floral paper so my tag didn't get lost, I added a piece of vellum over the top. A piece of Berry Burst ribbon was wrapped around the join and secured underneath and the piece was then mounted onto the Berry Burst card base. I tied a separate Berry Burst bow and then slipped the silver Baker's Twine under the ribbon strip, across the centre of the bow and through the tag and tied it in a bow.

I decided to make my tag a little longer to give a bit more space for the greeting and floral embellishment. You do this by cutting a strip of card stock 4.8cm wide and 8.5cm long. Each end of the tag is then cut independently with the tag die from the coordinating Sweet Cake Framelits. I stamped the leaves in Old Olive and cropped them with the matching die and the other greenery in Lemon Lime Twist is from one of the included dies. I love the simple elegance of the 'for you' greeting which I stamped in Berry Burst.

For the inside, I have mat of Old Olive and a strip of the Sweet Soiree designer paper at the base of the writing panel, topped with a narrow strip of Powder Pink. I stamped and fussy cut the flowers and popped them up over some more greenery elements that were left over.
