CTC219 – Gingham Gala

Welcome to another exciting week at Caseing the Catty. We are casing the Gingham Gala section, pages 34-37 of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

I received the Humming Along stamp set at Onstage in Orlando and I’m afraid to say that I hadn’t used it until this week. The hibiscus flower is just so pretty that I had to case the card on page 36. I also wanted to try the fringing on the card as well.

I did a google search for hibiscus flowers to find an accurate colour combo. I found this one so I went with Lovely Lipstick, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody.

I coloured my flower using blends and added Granny Apple Green. I used the Hummingbird Framelits to cut out the flower and the sentiment. I did a Stitched Rectangle using the Botanical Butterfly DSP for the background of the flower.

To create the fringing, I put tape on the back of the rectangle and cut two long pieces of Flax ribbon and lots of small pieces to go across the top and bottom. I then used my Take your pick tool and fluffed out the ribbon.

On the background, I embossed a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock with the Subtles embossing folder for a little bit of texture.

I hope you enjoyed my card tonight. Next up is the lovely Sandra.

We would love to see your creations over on at our Facebook Group.

Happy Stamping
