CTC #156 - Give It A Christmas Twist

Welcome to another week at CASEing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop, this week we are taking inspiration from any project in either the Annual or Holiday Catalogues and putting a Christmas twist on it!  I am so excited to see what everyone creates this week.

After flicking through the catalogue, and getting a bit distracted, I settled on the card in the above image from the Eastern Palace Suite on page 18 of the Annual Catalogue, although I think there are many projects in this suite that would lend themselves to Christmas, especially with that amazing framelit set.

Using the layout as my inspiration I added a panel of DSP onto the base card, stamping on it with the cute little flower from Carols of Christmas. The main sentiment from Merry Little Labels was cut using a stitched framelit circle.  I sponged a thin strip of the black and white check DSP with Real Red to add some extra depth and colour.  Mini sequin trim and Metalic Enamel Shapes finished the card off with a bit of festive bling.

I hope you are inspired to join us this week, a great opportunity to make another Christmas card to send out to friends or family. Just take your inspiration from any of the projects in the current catalogues and put a festive twist on it, then add a photo of it to the CTC Facebook Page.

Time to hop on over and see what the lovely Judy has created this week.

Happy Stamping

  2. This design is lovely Monique. Love the stamping on the music sheet.
