I was asked recently if I'd like to be a Guest Designer for CASEing The Catty challenge blog. Of course I said yes! The regular DT do a Blog Hop every Sunday evening, with a challenge to CASE a card from a particular section of the Catalogue.
This week the CTC DT are CASEing from the Christmas section. I hadn't looked at this section much yet, as in July Christmas seems to be so far away, but if you're anything like me it sneaks up on you rapidly after that and you're wondering where the time went!
Anyway, I decided to CASE this card on page 29 of the Annual Catalogue. I really liked the CAS look of it.
I don't actually own the Peaceful Pines stamp set and framelits though, so I decided to substitute for the Embellished Ornaments stamps and framelits.
I went for a classic Christmas colour combo of Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Gold.
The original card had a few clear sequins scattered on the front, so I added some to my card too. They add a nice little something, but are discrete enough that they don't distract from the main elements.
I always finish the insides of my cards too, so I cut a second bauble from the Red Glimmer Paper to use on the inside.
Thanks so much to the CTC team for having me as a Guest Designer this week, it was lots of fun. Click on the Previous Blog button to go to the CTC Blog and the Next Blog button to go to the next blog in the Blog Hop, which is the lovely Rachel Palmieri.
