CASE-ing the Catty - Sketch Challenge
March 21, 2021
It's great to be back with CASE-ing the Catty this week, after our successful 2 week visit to Queensland to find our new home!
If you've come from visiting Peta & Marvi, 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 we are taking our inspiration from the Well Suited Suite on page 66 and in particular, the bow tie trio card in the centre of the photo above.
Here is the card, translated into a sketch so that you can better see the key elements. This is a great layout that lends itself to a lot of options for the 3 decorative elements in the centre.
I arrived home to a brown box containing the new early-release Butterfly Brilliance Collection. This collection includes the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, Butterfly Bijou 6" x 6" Designer Paper and the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. You can purchase all of these items as a collection for $125.00AUD, which includes a 10% bundle discount. Inventory is now LOW, so if you're still thinking about this lovely collection of products, don't wait too long! The two papers are exclusive to this promotion which runs until 3 May or while stocks last. The Butterfly Brilliance Bundle will be available in the new 2021-22 Annual Catalogue. You can also purchase the products individually in case you wanted more of the Butterfly Bijou paper, while stocks last.
To create my card, I've used the circles design from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Paper to cover my Basic White card base. The colour listed on the pack is Just Jade, but it is really a much closer match to Bermuda Bay, I think. I have used Night of Navy card stock to mat the small butterfly design from the Butterfly Bijou pack. To add a bit more pop, I cut 4mm strips of Night of Navy card stock and positioned them behind the centre panel, which was popped up on Black Dimensionals.
The detailed butterflies were cut with the Brilliant Wings Dies. There are 6 to choose from in varying sizes and I used Night of Navy for the large and Bermuda Bay for the smaller ones (oops, just saw that I missed poking out a piece!). I added Vellum underneath so they wouldn't get lost in the background, using the large die (6 connected butterflies). Put a small piece of Vellum under the butterfly of your choice to cut them individually. I finished them with white Elegant Faceted Gems.
For the inside, I have a Night of Navy mat and a narrow strip of the butterfly designer paper down the left. I stamped the same shape butterfly as the front in Night of Navy ink and coloured it with Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy Stampin' Blends. The butterfly was fussy cut and popped up in the corner.

Beautiful colour combo. I love how you’ve attached the butterflies so they look like they are flying off the card. I hope you managed to find a lovely home.

Oh, so beautiful, Judy! The blues all look amazing together. I love how the navy strips on the background highlight the position of each of the butterflies. I'm so happy for you that you found a new home!
