CASE-ing the Catty - Christmas Twist


Hi there

It's lovely to be back CASE-ing the Catty this week. The CTC Crew is putting a Christmas twist on a birthday card!

If you've come from Monique's blog, then welcome! If you're visiting me, I appreciate you stopping by today!  You can continue your journey to see the other inspiring creations from the CTC Crew by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 


This week, I'm taking my inspiration from the card above on page 42 of the Annual Catalogue. The catalogue flopped open at this page and an idea popped into my head when I saw this card and I went with it.

Stampin' Up! Signs of Santa Bundle
At first glance, my card may not resemble the sample very closely. When I was positioning all the elements it became clear that Santa wasn't going to fit on a portrait card, so I switched it to landscape. I started with a Poppy Parade card base and added a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Oh My Stars embossing folder as used in the sample.


I found a scalloped Vellum circle in my scraps and then added the 3 banners that ground Santa; I've used the polka dot and striped/flocked designer paper from the Santa's Workshop Specialty pack and some Silver Glimmer paper. Santa was stamped in Memento Tuexedo Black ink and coloured with Stampin' Blends markers and cropped with the coordinating die from the Santa's Signpost Framelits dies. I used a glue pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to Santa's Hat trim and pompom. The greeting is stamped in Garden Green and is tucked under Santa's list and they are popped up. A few silver sequins finishes it off.


For the inside I have a double mat for the writing panel and I added some of the Garden Green sprig washi from the Suite Season Specialty pack at the base. Mrs Claus is in the corner, coloured with Stampin' Blends markers. It doesn't show well in the photo, but I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to her collar, cuffs and apron with a glue pen.

Just gorgeous Judy. I love these two being on the same card together. And the layout fits perfectly for the change in orientation. The extra glitter detail is a great idea!
