Well I have survived my first week back at work and sadly life is getting back to normal. But I did put my Christmas tree up this week!! Actually I should say trees as I have 2. I need one for just my travelling Christmas ornaments!
This week at CTC we are doing something a little different and casing a birthday card and giving it a Christmas Twist.
Sometimes I forget that you can use the Catalogues to case layouts as well as copying cards. I’ve cased a birthday card from page 77 of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.
I decided to use the Snowfall thinlits and the Snow is Glistening stamp set which are only available this month. The stamp set includes two stamps which were perfect for recreating the look of the cut outs on the original card. For my centre piece, I used some retired Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for lots of sparkle. It needed something to make it stand out, so I added a Pacific Point scallop circle behind it.
I put a piece of Gray Granite Textured Weave Ribbon behind the snow flake. I then stamped the sentiment from the Alpine Adventure stamp set and punched it using the 1″ circle punch.
The photo doesn’t do it justice as it’s quite sparkly in real life!
The Snowflake Showcase which includes the Snow is Glistening Stamp Set, the Happiness Surrounds Stamp Set, the Snowfall Thinlits and the cute Snowflake trinkets is still available until 30 November so click here to pick yours up from my online store.
Don’t forget the Online Extravangza is still on! Make sure you don’t miss out. Check it out here.
