CASE-ing the Catty - Painted Christmas

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty! 

If you've come from visiting Michelle, 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 inspiration from the Painted Christmas section (pages 16-23) of the 2021 July-December Mini Catalogue.


I've chosen the 3D treat bag above for my inspiration, as I like the layout and the ombre background.

After measuring the Ombre Gift Bags, I decided to use the Soft Succulent version as the background for my card. It would cover the entire card front, but I decided to leave a border to show the Misty Moonlight card base. It is quite thin, so I adhered it to a piece of Basic White before layering onto the card base. Next comes a piece of my favourite design from the Tidings of Christmas DSP.

I used the medium sized label from the Seasonal Labels Dies and the Cherry Cobbler striped design from the Tidings of Christmas DSP to create a contrast to the Evening Evergreen design. I found the label a little too large so I popped it back in the die and cropped a bit off one end. As the edges are straight, this is super easy to do. I used the large detailed die from the Christmas Pinecone Dies to create the foliage with Just Jade card stock. I tried Evening Evergreen, but it was too dark and Just Jade works well with Soft Succulent. I've stamped the stocking from the Tidings & Trimmings stamp set in Misty Moonlight and popped it up on the label.  The greeting  also from the same stamp set, has been stamped in Shaded Spruce, which I also used for the holly on the side of the stocking. I finished with a trio of stars cropped from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper with the Stitched Stars dies.

For the inside I have an Soft Succulent mat and a strip of the Evening Evergreen designer paper down the right hand side. At the bottom is a stamped Cherry Cobbler stocking with the Shaded Spruce holly trim.

That's a different idea, using the bag when you're CASE-ing the bag! Sweet card Judy.

So clever to use the gift bag ON the card to get the lovely ombre look!! Great card - and the bright stockings are a lovely finishing touch.

Michelle Strazds

Great case. I love the addition of the blue with the other traditional Christmas colours.

Rebecca S

I love how you have transformed the bag! It looks stunning!!
