Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week! 

If you've come from visiting  Tina, 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. 


We're taking inspiration from bundles in the 2022 July-December Mini Catalogue this week. As it happens, the Leaves of Holly Bundle arrived this week, so I decided to get it inky.


The photo above shows the sample project from page 76 that I've taken my inspiration from.


Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly Bundle | Judy May, Just Judy Designs

As you can see, I've stayed close to the design, choosing to use more traditional red and green colours for my version. I added the red spotted design from the Boughs of Holly Designer Paper to a Thick Basic White card base. For the focus panel I have a Basic White rectangle cropped with the Stitched Rectangles Dies with a Pool Party mat creatiing a narrow border.

This is a 2 step stamp set, so you can stamp the background colour and then add the highlights in a darker colour over the top. I've used just the highlight stamp and stamped on Shaded Spruce card stock with Shaded Spruce ink, to achieve the different tones.  There are coordinating dies in the Holly Berry Dies to crop the holly leaves. For the berries, I used only the background image with Real Red ink. For another option, you can use just the dies to create layered holly leaves. The greeting was stamped in Real Red on Pool Party card stock and cropped with the label die included in the Holly Berry Dies.  I added a strip of the 3/8" Gold Shimmer Ribbon under the label and around the focus panel, adhering on the reverse with tape. The label is popped up and the separate bow added at the left. I popped in some Gold Foil foliage and a sprinkle of Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins to finish.

For the inside, I have stamped the greeting from the Leaves of Holly stamp set and added a strip of the striped paper from the Sweetest Christmas DSP at the bottom. The writing panel was added to a Pool Party mat.

Judy, your card is lovely! I much prefer the more traditional colours of your card than the sample card.
