CASE-ing the Catty - Christmas Season Fave Project

Hi there

Welcome to another week of CASE-ing the Catty! 

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 inspiration from our favourite project from the 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue.CTC342_SU_SampleI've looked at the sample project (above) using the Christmas Season Bundle many times, with the Balmy Blue card base and alternative colours for the Christmas foliage always drawing my eye. I love non-traditional colours for Christmas and the striped background does add that 'candy cane' feel.

I didn't stray from the layout, changing the card to Basic White with a layer of Mint Macaron as the mask is a tad too small for a standard metric card base. I've used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste with the striped mask from the Adorning Designs Decorative Masks to create a lovely sparkly background. I kept the foliage colours the same apart from Just Jade for the rounded leaves instead of Soft Succulent, to provide more contrast with the background. The other colours are Blushing Bride, Misty Moonlight and Cinnamon Cider.

This close up photo shows the lovely sparkle from the Shimmery Embossing Paste. It is such a wow from a simple technique. Most of the foliage are 2-step stamps, with a base and then a highlight image. For the base image,  stamp off first to get the lighter colour and then stamp the highlight image in full strength. Such a great way to make your ink colours go further. I've used the greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set and popped it up over the top of the foliage pieces. I added the gold bow at the top and the retired 2020-22 In Color Enamel Dots at the base to finish.

I love the addition of the white card base, creating a white frame around the main piece. I love the mint macaron as the background colour. Great card.
