Hi there!! I’m back from holidays and finally caught up enough to join back in with CTC. I had a great time cruising to New Zealand with my mum and sister. New Zealand is a gorgeous place! I’m going back there to explore further soon.
So this week at CTC, we are casing the Holiday Kits.
I had made the Stitched with Cheer kit for my Pop as his birthday present in October so that he had cards to send out for Christmas. I give him xmas cards for his birthday and birthday cards for his xmas present!! Keeps him going for the family all year around!! After all, what do you get a 93 year old (aside from chocolate coated peanuts!!)
But I didn’t have any cards left so I decided to create my own using the samples as inspiration. This is why I love Casing the Catty as it goes to show that you don’t need to re-invent the wheel all the time and cards don’t have to be over the top to be lovely.
I used the Warmth & Cheer DSP Stack as my dsp of choice. I also used the gold twine from the Baker’s Twine Trio pack and separated the strands to just 2 to make it less chunky.
I was trying to experiment with creating my own background on the next one. Not sure it was quite successful, but oh well! I used the Stitched Shape framelits (which will be back in stock soon) and added the silver ribbon from the Glitter ribbon combo pack.
I re-created the trees on the third card using one of the trees from the Perfect Pines framelits in the Annual Catalogue.
I hope you are inspired by the cards I have created from this kit. Check out what Kelly has made using the same kit as her inspiration.
Don’t forget you can join in with our monthly challenge here by simply casing the catalogue and sharing on your blog and joining our link.
