CASE-ing the Catty - Slimline Boughs of Holly

CTC374_BannerThis week we are taking inspiration from a favourite retiring bundle from the 2022 January-June Mini Catalogue.  

Thankfully a lot of my favourite bundles have carried over into the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue, so I took a little poetic license and chose the project in the photo above using the Crane of Fortune Bundle. This slimline card with the simple embellishment spoke to me and as I had the Boughs of Holly designer paper still on my craft desk, I thought it would work well for another Christmas card.

My slimline card base from Thick Basic White is 21cm x 9.9cm when folded, which is a little larger than those cut from Imperial card stock. It will fit into a standard DL (business) size envelope in Australia for standard postage. I added a layer of the rich Poinsettia designer paper from the Boughs of Holly pack. It is a larger scale than the one I used last week and has the Mossy Meadow background.

The background for the greeting labels is a piece of multi-toned Mossy Meadow paper from the Boughs of Holly pack that I adhered to a piece of Mossy Meadow card stock. The new Fern 3D Embossing Folder from the upcoming July-December Mini Catalogue etches very strongly, so you'll find the paper might crack and show the white core if you don't reinforce it first. I decided to take a chomp out of each corner with a retired 1/2" corner punch to mirror the Real Red label and soften the corners. The greeting from the Christmas to Remember stamp set was heat embossed in gold and cropped with a label die from the Painted Labels Dies. Under the greeting label is a Gold Shimmer Ribbon faux bow and two of the new gold Open Leaf Trinkets. The greeting was popped up over the red label also cropped with the Painted Labels Dies and I finished with a sprinkle of Irridescent Rhinestones.

For the inside, I have added a piece of leftover Poinsettia paper to the Basic White writing panel and strip of Gold Shimmer ribbon for a border.

Your card is so lush and regal! The rich colours look amazing, and I love the layering in the centre of the card.
