CTC 49 Home For Christmas

This week at CASEING the catty we are celebrating the gorgeous Home for Christmas section of the Holiday Catalogue (pages 8 -21).    This product suite is one of my favourites & is sure to be yours too. It has such a lovely vintage feel from the cute little reindeer to cheeky Santas and the coordinating Cozy Christmas stamp set is a must this Christmas.  Also in this section are the Embellished Ornaments, Hearth & Home plus the impressive Sleigh Ride edgelits.  There is a lot more in this section to see & use, but I could not go past the Home for Christmas DSP.  

I chose to CASE this card on page 8, but have added a little twist 😉

I was cruising around the internet last week & saw this cute twisted Christmas card by Angie over at My Chic & Scratch.  It was such an unusual fold I wanted to try it out.  Here is the link to her tutorial on Youtube.  

For my card CASED from the Holiday Catalogue, I used the very striking Poinsettia DSP in the Home for Christmas DSP.   I cut it out of the DSP & mounted it on a 2 1/2" circle punched out of Vanilla card stock & mounted it on my Mossy Meadow card base. 

As I wanted a bigger card than those on the video, I changed the dimensions on my card to suit my project.  My poinsettia card flat starting dimensions are 26cm x 14.5cm & the finished folded version as shown is 10cm x 18cm.

Here is the DSP as shown in the catalogue.  This designer paper is my go to DSP this year, I can't stop using it! 

While I was designing this card I made a smaller version that will fit in a standard envelope.  Once again, I could not go past the gorgeous Home For Christmas DSP & a cute vintage Santa snipped out of the larger sheet of Santas in this DSP pack. 

This card is a bit smaller measuring 15cm x 10cm when finished. So, there you go a fun twist on a Holiday catalogue card.    I can see these cards stepped up with lots of bling & glimmer paper, I just didn't have any on hand.  Guess what I will be ordering this week!
