CASE-ing the Catty - Colours of Santa Express DSP
October 09, 2022
Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week!
If you've come from visiting Monique, 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 the colours in the Santa Express Designer Series Paper. They are an interesting combo, but as always, Stampin' Up! has created a combination that works well with the fun imagery in the paper.
I started off with something else in mind and then got sidetracked, lol. The pretty trees on one of the cards in Santa Express Memories & More Pack took my eye and so I went in another direction.
These trees are one of my favourite cards from the pack and then I saw the acetate overlay and put them together, but the greeting got a bit lost. I decided on the Poppy Parade design from the Santa Express DSP across the centre to make it pop. I sliced off 2 rows of trees (leaving me 2 more for another card) and adhered them to my Shaded Spruce card base and then added the panel of DSP that was adhered to a strip of Basic White.
To add some texture, I stamped the holly and berries from the Christmas Banners stamp and adhered them with glue dots on top of the acetate overlay. Don't forget the acetate overlay has a protective layer of plastic that needs to be removed when you're ready to use it.
Adhering the acetate overlay without showing adhesive is a bit tricky, but if you have an embellishment on top of the acetate, you can hide your adhesive underneath, so I put glue dots under the holly and adhered the acetate to the front of the card. I felt it needed something else, so I stamped the sweet deer from the Peaceful Deer stamp set and coloured it with Stampin' Blends to add a bit more Christmas imagery. I finished with a trio of sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Season Sequins.
For the inside, I have stamped the greeting from the Sweet Candy Canes stamp set and added the row of presents fussy cut from another Santa Expess Memories & More card.
