CTC145 Merry Little Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone & welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty.  This week we are casing my very favourite section in the holiday catalgoue, the Merry Little Christmas section from pages 10-19.

I have chosen to make 3 cards from this section as I haven't joined in the fun for such a long time!  My 1st card I have chosen to case is the card on the string that nice lady is holding .... well I presume she is nice! 

This card has a shaker element to it however, I was after a quick card that incorporated all the elements of the Carols Of Christmas bundle, minus the shaker part.

Here is my card:

I have used the Card Front Builder framelits to make a nice little frame & then the Merry Little Christmas DSP as a background for my little black deer.  I have also cut out some trees using the spotty DSP too.   Now I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of green & black for Christmas but it is growing on me & it took everything in me not to add lots of red! 

For my second card, this little box took my fancy.  I was too lazy to make this box but I did take inspiration from it to make a card.

Here is my inspired card.  

Instead of using the bauble which was just too chunky for my card, I used some large pearls & the holly punch to add holly instead of the sprigs. It just goes to show that you don't have to have everything in the catalogue to case something!

While I was playing with this fun suite,  I figured I may as well make another card using the Everyday Label punch & the Merry Little Labels stamp set.

I had a lot of fun creating again & hope to be back in the swing of joining in the fun CASEing the Catty challenges in the future.  

Next on the hop is the lovely Julia, where I am sure you will find even more to inspire you.

Thanks for stopping by
