CASE-ing the Catty - Sending Love & Hugs

2019 CTC Banner

Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week! It has been ages since I've been able to join the Crew and I'm feeling rather out of practice, lol. After 10 months of renovations, I'm finally moving into my new craft room.  I'll share some pics after I'm unpacked and organised.

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 the Crew are taking inspiration from a bundle in the 2022-23 Annual Catalogue .


I decided on the Sending Smiles Bundle for my card, using the sample above for inspiration. I think it was the textured backgound using the lattice from the Chic Dies that caught my eye, plus, I thought it would be nice for my Mum, who has been unwell recently.

I don't have the Chic Dies, but I thought the lattice (of a different kind) from the Artisan Addition Dies might work. I cropped 2 panels from Thick Basic White and then fussy cut around the design to create standalone pieces that I adhered to a panel of Basic White. If I was doing this again, I would add the Adhesive Sheet to the reverse first, but I wasn't sure how it would turn it.

I stamped the flowers and stems and cropped them with the corresponding pieces from the Sending Dies and positioned them on the lattice. I decided on the detailed 'Sending' die, rather than stamping it and then die cutting. Foam Adhesive Sheet was adhered to the reverse of the Daffodil Delight card stock before die cutting, so the greeting adds another layer of texture to card. The smaller greeting was stamped in Garden Green and cropped with the smallest of the banner dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies, cutting twice to extend the length.  I finished with a trio of Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Your card is so bright and cheerful, Judy. I'm sure that it will bring joy to your mum. The colourful flowers look amazing against the textured background.
