Hi there

Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty for this week!  

If you've come from visiting  Rebecca, 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 we are CASE-ing a project of our choice from the new 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalogue. You can choose a FREE item from a great range of stamps and patterned papers when you place a qualifying order of $90AUD or more until 28 February 2023.

Today, I'm using the Favored Flowers Designer Series Paper, which I have to say wasn't one of my favourite items from the Sale-a-bration brochure. The paper is very bold and I found the black background on some sheets a bit off-putting, although I do like the small prints on the reverse.  So, I decided to push on and see if I could make something I was happy with. My card is a mash-up of the card on the left and the card on the right, in the photo above.

I started with a card-size panel of Fresh Freesia card stock and added the narrow strip of the Blackberry Bliss geometric design down the left. On the right I have added a panel of polka dot vellum from Vellum Basics 12 x 12 Specialty DSP. This product is new in the 2023 January-April Mini Catalogue and in addition to the polka dots, there are leaf and diagonal stripe designs. The vellum softens the Fresh Freesia and adds another layer of interest in the background. I wrapped a couple of strands of white Baker's Twine around the panel at the border of the vellum and finished with a bow at the top.

I fussy cut the cluster of Fresh Freesia flowers from the paper, cutting right on the line as I didn't want a black border. I popped up the flowers and also cut some extra partial leaves from the edges of the paper to fill it out and add dimension. I also added a bit more to the bottom flower, as I thought the edge was a bit straight, so now it has a nice rounded shape. White sprays were cropped with the Framed Florets Dies and some open leaves from Silver Foil also with the same dies.  The greeting is from my favourite Biggest Wish stamp set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss and fussy cut with a generous border. I finished with a trio of Iridescent Pearls.

For something a little different, I cut an 'L' shape piece of the Blackberry Bliss design and adhered it to the inside of the card and then added the white writing panel over the top. A small flower was fussy cut from the paper and added to the corner.

I'm pretty happy with how the card turned out and will be adding it to the thank you cards I'll be taking overseas to thank our hosts.
