CTC 51 - Winter Wonderland

Welcome to the CASEing the Catty blog hop for this week.  Today we are creating using the very lush suite, Winter Wonderland on pages 22-27 in the Holiday Catalogue.   This is one of my absolute favourite suites & was the one I was drawn to the first time I looked through the catalogue.  I think most of my preorder consisted of everything in this suite!

I have created lots & lots of projects from this section & will be sharing them later on in my 12 weeks of Christmas posts commencing on the 9th of October, going right through until Christmas eve.

This week I have chosen to CASE the shaker card on page 22 of the Holiday Catalogue.

I loved the crisp black, white & gold feel this card has, plus I wanted to try out a shaker card.  I chose to use the Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP.  Now this DSP is REALLY lush with gold, black & white.  It is a shiny thin paper, which makes it feel expensive & extra special! 

Here is a side view.  I quite like a square card, but this one will need an envelope made as its quite large at 15cm x 15cms.  I have added a sheet of the Winter Wonderland Vellum stack.  Oh my, this stack is stunning.  If you love vellum you will love these gorgeous prints.

The deer to the right corner is from the stamp set Jolly Christmas, which is also in this section of the catalogue.   

The other thing you will notice is the metallic sequins in the shaker section. They match this DSP perfectly & are from the annual catalogue. I cut out the middle of a doily & made a mini one for an added embellishment behind the deer. 

I hope you have enjoyed my shaker card today.  It's now time to continue the hop to Judy's blog.  To see her project just click on her name or the next blog button below.  Remember if you get lost you can always head on over to CTC blog to see the full list of participants.

  4. Your version of this card is awesome Tricia. I love that you've changed the shape of the shaker window and the addition of the gold embossed leaping reindeer is a perfect addition. And of course, the little bit of vintage, by adding a doily. The antler paper ties the card all together. You have a stunner here!!!
