Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty!
If you've come from visiting Rebecca, 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 have a sketch challenge based on the red and white card in the pic above, from page 34 of the 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue. It is easier to see the main elements of the sketch in the diagram above. It is super flexible with the circle being any shape of your choice.
I've created a background with the Heartwarming Hugs designer paper on a Real Red card base. I took a little license and made the band at the bottom wider so that the stripes would balance out the Old Olive polka dot.
I found a stitched circle in my bag of die cut shapes, so I popped that over the zigzag of Real Red Sheer ribbon. The stocking was fussy cut from the Sweet Stockings Designer Paper and I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the sweet little pup that is popped up at the top. The stocking was a little larger than I wanted, so I cut it at the band and then overlapped it onto the bottom and popped it all up on the circle. The Santa hat has some sparkle from the (retired) Dazzling Diamonds glitter I added to the trim and pompom. I added the die cut holly from the Christmas Trimmings Dies on the side and finished with a few Gilded Gems. The greeting from the Sweet Little Stockings stamp set was stamped in Real Red and cropped with a Stitched Rectangle die and popped up at the bottom.
For the inside I have an Old Olive mat and I've created the same effect with the stripes at the top and bottom with the white writing panel in the centre.
