I’m excited that this week at CTC we are celebrating Christmas in July!! Well kind of!! We are casing the Holidays section, pages 92-103, of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
In preparation of my trip to Orlando (102 days and counting!!) I’ve been watching YouTube videos about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party (and yes I have my ticket booked already!) so I’m feeling a bit Christmassy already.
I decided to case the frame on page 102 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
I wanted to make a card instead of a frame, so I started with an Early Espresso base and did a background with the Under the Mistletoe DSP (which is included in the current Buy 3 get 1 free DSP sale).
I then stamped the tree from Ready for Christmas stamp set on Shaded Spruce cardstock, with Shaded Spruce ink. I then cut them out with the Christmas Staircase thinlits. I used my paper trimmer to score down the middle of each tree. I then laid three over each other and stapled down the middle. I then put a thin layer of glue down the centre and held the final tree until the glue was dry enough. I coloured a few rhinestone with Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends and decorated my tree with them.
My very favourite Christmas colour combo is Green and Red and I think Shaded Spruce and Real Red are a perfect combo! I embossed the sentiment in Gold and scored each side of the banner then used the Banner triple punch for the ends.
I used the Tailored Tag punch to cut the base of the tree. And a left over gold star from an old kit for the top of the tree. (There has to be bling on the tree!!)
I hope you are starting to feel Christmassy!
Next up is the lovely Peta. I wonder what Marvi is up to today!
