CTC #108 - Holiday Kits

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty, this week we are taking our inspiration from the wonderful kits in the holiday catalaogue.  I just love the idea of the kits as they make creating so easy for both experienced and new crafters.

I took my inspiration from the Stitched With Cheer kit pictured above. Even though I was tempted to showcase Tin of Tags again, I thought I would do something new. I don't have this kit but took it as a challenge to create them out of supplies I have on hand.

I kept all my cards fairly close to the original, and the first one is no exception.  I did use gold sequins instead of the holly leaves, to accent the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.  

For my second card I used the lovely snowflake image from Holly Jolly Greetings to create the large white image, and the small green snowflake stamped on the DSP is from Peace This Christmas. I couldn't completley resist Tin of Tags in this challenge so used it for the sentiment.  

I pulled out another Christmas stamp set for my third card, creating the trees using triangles of DSP. The small snowflakes on the background are stamped using StazOn White to stamp the image from Perpetual Birthday Calendar.

I chose to make all of the cards using the Notecards, they are just perfect with their matching envelopes, and with both white and crumb cake available are really versatile. Did you also spot my faux stitching on each card?

I hope you have enjoyed your visit, and that you might be inspired to join us this week, simply take inspiration from the kits in the holiday catalogue and add your image to the link above.

Time to hop on over and see what Julia has created to inspire you.

Happy Stamping


  1. Monique these are GORGEOUS. Loved the first one as soon as I saw it- so crisp and clean, but then as I went on i just loved them all! Such a great example of how to take a catalogue card layout and make it your own. Beautiful. Think I may even case your first card too!

  2. I love your version of these cards. I often forget about the notecards but they are a great option. Thanks for reminding me about them.


I love reading your comments, thanks for taking the time to write them.
