Welcome to Day 2 of my CASE the catty week! Before I get to today’s card, I decided that, for at least the next couple of months, I will share Christmas cards only on Mondays. Now that I got my first order of Holiday Catalog goodies, all I want to make is Christmas cards, but I also want to pace myself and not go overboard, as it’s still summer! LOL! So posting them only on Mondays will help keep that in check (hopefully)! 🙂
My card today is based on a sample on page 100 of the catalog:
Believe it or not, my card is based on the bottom card in this picture. When I first started making it, I had a very different idea in my head of what I wanted the final card to look like. As I continued to create it and made changes as I went along, it began to look less and less like the original sample! Other than the plaid backgrounds, there’s not too much left in common between these cards, though I’m still very pleased with how my final card came out!
Most of the products used on this card are from the new Holiday Catalog! The plaid background paper is from a new DSP called the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper. The “Christmas” die cut and “Wishes” stamp are from a gorgeous new bundle called the Merry Christmas to All Bundle. I also used a new trim called the 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim. Other products include the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Twinkle Builder Punch, which I used to cut out the stars!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Mossy Meadow card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Cherry Cobbler middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Plaid DSP layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Very Vanilla stitched oval: 3-5/16 x 2-3/8 inches
Christmas die cut: 4-5/8 x 1-1/4 inches
Cherry Cobbler stars: approximately 1/4 inch
All of the Holiday Catalog products shown on this project will be available beginning September 5th! I have the new catalogs in hand and will be shipping them out to my customers by the end of this week. If you would like a copy, and do not already have a demonstrator, please send me your name and address and I will put you on my list!
Thanks for stopping by! Please check back tomorrow for Day 3’s project!
