Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week!
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 CASE-ing the 2022 January-February Sale-a-bration brochure. There are lots of great samples in the brochure that you can use for inspiration and to kickstart the creative process, even if you don't have the specific products used.
I chose the card above for my inspiration. It was the brightly coloured stripes at the top and the scalloped border that caught my attention. When I looked closer, I realised the coloured stripes was actually one of the designs from the fabulous Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper that is a FREE Sale-a-bration item you can choose with a $90AUD order. Unfortunately, it isn't currently available in Australia due to shipping delays (unloading the ship in Australia), but hopefully that will be fixed soon.
As I don't have the Rainbow of Happiness Bundle or the coordinating Sunshine & Rainbows DSP, I decided to use the pretty pierced and scalloped border from the Scalloped Contour Dies with the bright floral design from the Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Series Paper for my card. The striped designer paper at the top would be replaced with strips of card stock.
I started with a Thick Basic White card base and added my bright strips of card stock at the top. I took the colours from the designer paper and cut them 2.3cm wide to create the narrow white space at the junction of the scallops. The scalloped border was adhered next and I decided to add a narrow band of Gold Foil to echo the gold foil accents in the designer paper. The greeting from the Special Moments stamp set (also a Sale-a-bration option you can choose with a $180AUD order) was stamped in Magenta Madness ink and popped up on a piece of Just Jade card stock. I've used the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon underneath the greeting as it is very close to Magenta Madness. I finished with a trio of the cute Brushed Brass Butterflies embellishments.
For the inside, I have a mat of Magenta Madness cardstock and the edge of the writing panel has been cropped with the scalloped border die and finished with the band of Gold Foil and a narrow strip of the designer paper.
