Hi everyone. Welcome to CTC 142 – Love and Sympathy and Brightly Lit Christmas!
Yes, this week we are taking a look at the Love and Sympathy Section on pages 86 – 101 of the Annual Catalogue.
And I finally did it….I finally chose to do a little christmas with my card making using the – you guessed it – Brightly Lit Christmas Bundle.
I haven’t seen that bundle I hear you say – you would be right again! It’s one of our Brand New products in the upcoming Holiday Catalogue. And I’m just a sucker for a good framelit – so it was in my ‘must have’ lists (one of the great perks of being a demo is playing with the new stuff before anyone else!)
The base for my card design this week was using the Tranquil Tide card image on the bottom right of page 94 of the catalogue –
It was a bit different for a Christmas Card, and I must admit – I decided not to make a traditional Christmas Card either. You see, I have a few friends that like ‘non-traditional’ cards and Christmas is no exception. So I chose Black and White and silver!
It was a bit tricky to get a good pic of this card, but I layered up the lamppost by cutting the framelits 3 times in Basic Black before adding the last layer of Silver Foil. The Fine Tip Glue Pen works really well when applying this technique. Doing this really makes the Lamppost pop right off the card and give it a 3D effect.
And did you know our Merry Music DSP is actually the music for the Christmas Carols! I have a little musician in the house, so we thought that was a pretty cool touch to add to the Designer Paper!
I am a pretty traditional girl myself, so I can’t say I’m 100% sure about the non traditional look! What do you think?
Now it’s time to hop over to Kathryn’s blog and take a look at what she has created this week!
