Welcome to CASE-ing the Catty this week.

This week we are taking inspiration from the O Holy Night Suite from the September - December Mini Catalogue. This is one of my favourites in this catalogue.
Surprise! I decided to give you a break from Christmas cards this week and instead used some of the gorgeous new Delightful Floral DSP. If you haven't seen this yet, check it out in a large format in the Online Exclusives section of my Online Store. This paper coordinates with the Translucent Florals Bundle from the Mini Catalogue. It is a 'while stocks last item', so if you love it, don't risk being disappointed.
When I'm using ribbon wrapped around the front of the card, I always start with a card size panel of Basic White and adhere the floral paper to this panel. The background label was created by cutting the label die from the Stars At Night Dies twice from Berry Burst shimmer paper from the Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper pack. Three of the colours from the Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper coordinate with the Delightful Floral DSP, so you might want to consider it, as it is super pretty. The straight edge of the labels face each other and then move them apart to create your preferred border on the greeting circle. The Pretty Peacock strip across the centre hides the gap between the labels. I used the Pretty Peacock wash design from the paper pack and adhered it to Pretty Peacock card stock to make it more robust.
I added a strip of the gorgeous 1/2" Iridescent Ribbon across the centre of the Pretty Peacock strip and adhered behind the panel. The greeting from the Layering Leaves set was stamped in Berry Burst ink and cropped with the second largest circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. The matting circle from Parakeet Party was cropped with the (retired) 2 1/4" Circle Punch. The finished label was popped up over the Berry Burst label and I added some Lost Lagoon and white foliage cropped with the Layering Leaves Dies. I finished with a bow on the side using the Iridescent Ribbon and hopefully you can see some of the shine in the photo above. Unfortunately, it cannot do it justice as it is so pretty in real life.
The inside is very simple, with a slightly smaller panel of Basic White, trimmed with the floral paper on the right and a narrow border of the Berry Burst Soft Shimmer paper. I can add another greeting when I know the occasion I'm using the card for.
