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 the colours in the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.
Although this was intended more as an autumnal colour palette, I decided to take some of the designs from the paper and create a simple Christmas card. Given the state of the postal system, I'll be sending my cards early this year, so there isn't too much time left to get them made. Beautiful papers and a big bold greeting are the classic elements of a quick and easy card that still has a 'wow' for the recipient.
I started with a thick Basic White card base and added 2 panels of the rich berry tone designer paper. The one on the left has the gold foil leaf design and the one on the right has a small holly print. The designs were separated with a narrow band of Gold Foil. As these colours are so rich and bold, I've kept the layout very simple.
The large greeting from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set was heat embossed in gold and I used the retired 2 1/2" Circle Punch to crop it, as it provided a little extra space around the text. It is popped up on the Gold Foil circle that was cropped with the Layering Circle Dies. I die cut one of the large layers from the Christmas Pinecone Dies in the brushed gold metallic paper and snipped out some of the pine branches to put under my greeting for extra dimension. I finished with a trio of Metallic Pearls.
For the inside, I have a Rich Razzleberry mat for the writing panel with a strip of the gold foiled design a the base. I finished with a couple of the brushed gold pine branches tucked into right corner.
