CASE-ing the Catty - Sweetest Christmas Suite

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

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. 


It's July and the new 2022 July-December Mini Catalogue is here! For my customers, I hope your complimentary copy has arrived in the mailbox and you've had time to sit and enjoy browsing. There are lots of new products and so much detail to take in. It's also Sale-a-bration time, so you will get FREE goodies when you make a purchase of $90AUD or more, until 31 August 2022.

I've chosen the project in the photo above for my inspiration. One of my favourite colour combos for Christmas is Pool Party and Red, so the Sweetest Christmas Designer Paper got my tick straight away. It's part of the Sweetest Christmas Suite, which includes 2 bundles, Glimmer Paper and embellishments.

I was keen to try the new striped die that has so many possibilites.  I cut it from white glimmer paper from the new Real Red & White 6" x 6" Glimmer Paper pack. I hope you can see some of the sparkle in the photo above. I love that Stampin' Up! have created a design in the Sweetest Christmas paper pack that fits perfectly behind the die cut to create the pretty multi-coloured look you see. I cut the paper at 4", so you will get 6 cards from each sheet. Adding Adhesive Sheet to the glimmer paper before die cutting will make it super easy to adhere to the designer paper. I decided to add a mat of Real Red card stock leaving a narrow border, to help it pop.

I stayed with the candy cane embellishment for my card and stamped the pair from the Sweet Candy Cane Bundle in Real Red ink, as I wanted more red than white for my card. The sample card has the candy cane heat embossed in white on red card stock to give a more white look, so you can choose which option suits your look the best.  I added some Pool Party foliage from the Christmas Banners Dies behind the candy canes and popped the stamped banner over the top. I love the different banner options in the Christmas Banners stamp set with coordinating greetings. I finished with the Garden Green bow and one of the Flat Jingle Bell Trinkets above the banner and a sprinkle of gold sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins.

For the inside, I have stamped some foliage from the Christmas Banners stamp set in the top corner of the writing panel with Garden Green ink and stamped red berries over the top. I added a strip of striped designer paper at the base and layered it on a Real Red mat.

What a fun Christmas card! I love the colour combo, and the crossed candy canes look amazing. How clever that the DSP matches the die.
