Happy Monday and it’s time for another CASE the Catalog. This week, in anticipation of the launch of the 12 Weeks of Christmas that starts later next month, I decided to create my version of the Christmas Pines sample on page 97 of the Annual Catalog. Also, keep in mind that the next few weeks will be consumed with holiday cards and projects. Our new Holiday Catalog is amazing. Lots of fun samples are coming. This sample is from the Annual Catalog because, well the Holiday Catalog doesn’t come out until September 5th. Enjoy
The Sheet Music stamp was used to create a custom background when inked with Crumb Cake and stamped onto a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Finally, using the pine needles stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set and Old Olive ink, stamp the upper left corner of the page. Furthermore, you can add color variation by stamping twice before re-inking the stamp.
CASE The Catalog
Here is “my version” – to create the look of an old piece of sheet music, tear small strip from all sides of the paper and lightly sponge the edges plus the lower portion of the page. Similarly to the catalog sample, I curled the edges slightly and adhered the page to the Crumb Cake cardstock base. Use Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies to cut the pine cones from Early Espresso cardstock and the leaves from Gold Foil. A bow of 1/4″ Copper Trim finished the look. Use the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set and stamp using Mossy Meadow on Whisper White and cut using the Everyday Punch. A folded strip of 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon was placed under the sentiment to complete the card.
