It’s my favourite time of the week, when I get to share my latest card for the Caseing the Catty Sunday Blog Hop!
This week, we are casing the Holiday section again (you know, Christmas in July!!) pages 112-125 from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue.
There’s lots of gorgeous cards in this section so as always, it’s hard to decide which one to case.
I went with the centre card on page 118, with the stripes.
I actually started off with a striped dsp but when I came to assemble the layout, it just didn’t look great. I’ve cased the layout of this card, with a rectangle piece and the ribbon behind it.
I really love Berry Burst and the crinkle seam binding ribbon is just gorgeous! So soft and easy to use. The Big on Birthdays stamp set is one of my favourites, especially this birthday stamp with the flowers. I stamped in Memento Black Ink and then coloured with the water colour pencils. To create the pink flowers, I combined two pencils, melon mambo and rich razzleberry, and then blended with the blender pen.
Now you may have noticed that I have a Stitched Shape rectangle. But we don’t sell rectangles, I hear you say!! Well, you can make your own.
Step 1 – Cut a piece of cardstock the width of the framelit.
Step 2 – Place the framelit carefully over the piece, (you might feel more comfortable using a piece of washi tape to hold it in place). Then run it through the big shot but don’t go all the way through. Stop about two thirds of the way. (You don’t want to cut the final straight edge)
Step 3 – Then turn the cardstock and place the die (sticking with washi if need be), then run back through the big shot, only going two thirds again.
I hope that helps you to create lots of rectangles!!
