CASE-ing the Catty #201 – Holiday Cover

It’s been a little while since I’ve joined in my favorite weekly challenge – CASE-ing the Catty. This week it’s the front and back cover of the Holiday Catalogue that is being CASEd.

My inspiration was taken from this tag on the front cover using the Making Christmas Bright bundle.

I love the colours and the gold embossing, so I’ve used those to make this bright and fun card using the Nothing Sweeter bundle instead.

The base is Garden Green – there seem to be so many green options this year, with the revamped colour range. The Wood Textures DSP adds some interest, and on top I’ve layered the gorgeous shapes from the Sweetly Stitched dies in Old Olive, So Saffron, and Real Red.

Of course, nothing says Christmas more than a touch of gold and on this card there’s both the gold metallic thread and gold embossing.

I just love the way gold embossing looks. It gives the card a luxe feel.

I love how this challenge can lead you down a path of inspiration that results in something quite different from where you started. I love how this turned out and think I’ll make another in less traditional colours as well.
