Today’s project is a CASE from the Holiday Catalog. A CASE can be pretty much anything from the card that inspires you. For me, it was the layout and especially the embossed foil more than anything.
If you would like to check out my inspiration card. It is on page 31 of the Holiday Catalog. And if you do not have a catalog or a current demonstrator, please let me know and I will get one out to you.
If you do not have it yet, I feel like the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder is a Must Have! Oh My!!! And to emboss the foil card stock is even better. It is pretty on regular card stock, but as the name implies, the metal look makes it over the top.
I stamped and fussy cut the holly on each side of the sentiment. (NOTE: The sentiment has an “&” in front of it. I did not want this on the front of my card. So I used the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color the sentiment, except for the &. That way I had a clean image.) The hardest part of this piece is the straight lines I needed above and below the sentiment.
I wasn’t sure how to ground the sentiment but finally decided on the Whisper White Flax Ribbon. It was just the right thing for the idea I had in my mind.
Thank you for visiting today! I hope you will come back tomorrow for another new project. All of the supplies I used today are listed at the bottom of the post. And if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
