CASE-ing the Catty - New Mini Catalogue Cover

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there


Welcome back to another week of CASE-ing the Catty! 

If you've come from visiting Sandra, 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. 

In just 2 sleeps, the new 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue will be available to customers (and FREE Sale-a-bration products!), so this week we are taking our inspiration from the front cover.  I love the project on the front cover, using products from the fabulous Painted Christmas Suite so I got right to creating my own version of it. 

Stampin' Up! Painted Christmas Suite | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

The Stampin' Up! sample uses the Kraft Gift Boxes from page 11 of the catalogue, but I have created a card using the Kraft 6" x 6" paper for the background. I used the detailed foliage die from the Christmas Pinecone Dies to create a tone on tone background. I added Adhesive Sheet to the reverse of the Kraft paper first, to make it super easy to adhere.

There are lots of layers on this card, with the large label cut from the Painted Christmas Designer Paper, using the Seasonal Labels Dies and the second layer cut from Real Red using the same die, but shorter. The greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set was stamped in Garden Green and cropped with another of the Seasonal Labels Dies.

The labels were embellished with stamped and die cut holly leaves and berries using the Christmas Season stamp set. I popped in a couple of die cut pine cones and a little more foliage in Garden Green snipped from the large detailed die I used on the background. I used the new Real Red Sheer Ribbon to tie around the Kraft panel and finished with a bow at the top of the label. The Kraft panel was adhered to a Basic White card base.

I'm not in the mood for making Christmas cards just yet but this card is lovely.

Michelle Strazds

What a great case. Great idea to use the Kraft paper and add the extra layer of foliage in Kraft also.

Tina Gillespie

Oh, wow, Judy, your card is amazing! All those layers are perfection, and your bow is gorgeous.
