Last day of July = last day of my “Christmas in July” daily posts, and I love that it falls on a Sunday because I love to CASE the Catalog on Sundays (CTCS). This week’s CASE the Catty Sunday challenge is to “case a Christmas Tree project from the July – December 2022 Mini Catalogue, the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue or the Sale-a-bration Catalogue.” I chose a card on page 43 on the Annual Catalog:
Here’s my version:
The CASE I made is very true to the original project. The tree I used is pretty skinny, so I have a little forest, with only one tree decorated. How do you make a shaker? Easy peasy! Use the Layering Circle Dies, I created a window on the card front. Adhere a window sheet behind that, block off the window with foam adhesive strips, add some beads, sequins, whatever will shake, and adhere the front to the card front. Note, the new “fancy ” sequins in the Annual Catalog are SO pretty, but I do not have them. Using the retired Sequins for Everything.
I like how this card turned out. Subconsciously, I think I’ve been feeling “summery” because I have used Polished Pink in a few of my Christmas projects the past couple of weeks, and this one is the most summery with the soft gray of the Smoky Slate and the pink. Love how this turned out.
I also LOVE this Gingham Cottage DSP — check it out if you haven’t already!
I have a feeling over the next couple of months you’re going to be seeing a TON more of this patterned paper.
Here’s some close up’s of my card:
You can’t really tell on the screen, but the little stars on the Christmas tree were diecut out of the Snowy White velvet sheets and I added a little Wink of Stella too.
Thank you for following along the past two weeks with all of these Christmas projects. I’m looking forward to showcasing some non-holiday cards in the coming weeks!
Happy week, and happy stamping! Kelly
