We made this card as part of the Holiday Catalogue launch party back in September (thought I should catch up on some blog posts in this +40’C heat). It is CASEd (CASE = Copy And Share with Everyone) from the catalogue, I changed the orientation of the card and moved the sentiment a bit as I think my finished card was smaller than theirs and the components of their card didn’t fit right on a notecard base.
On a layer on Whisper White card stock 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ stamp the holly image and the splatter image randomly. Colour the leaves of the holly in with the Aquapainter and Old Olive ink and layered onto the folded Crumb Cake notecard. Stamp the ornament in Pool Party ink, then using a sponge dauber add some Island Indigo ink, spritzed it with water and then stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock. The image was then die cut. Add some loose loops of gold thread (about 50cm in length) to the card front and hold in place using Dimensionals where the ornament will be, add the ornament and the gold foil ornament topper with a glue dot. The sentiment was stamped in Crumb Cake and the banner ends hand cut. The catalogues are full of ideas and inspiration, sometimes a layout catches my eye, another time a colour scheme or technique – don’t ever be afraid to CASE ideas from them as they are designed to inspire your creativity!
