It’s Sunday night – so that means it’s time for another CASEing the Catty Challenge, where every week the design team uses images from the current catalogues to Copy and Share with you to help spur your creativity! You may have popped over from Judy or be starting right here, but make sure to take the full tour and see everyones creations!
Challenge 149 is all about the Year of Cheer Section of the Holiday catalogue on Pages 36-47.
The Year of Cheer section has so many sparkly projects to choose from as well as those cute as Mini Pizza Boxes.
So I took inspiration from the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper and the Mini Pizza Boxes to create Year of Cheer Mini Pizza Box Gift Cards.
I love the elegance of the Year of Cheer DSP and the gorgeous co-ordinating embellishments. They make it very simple to create stunning cards for special occasions.
I teamed mine with Fresh Fig cardstock and some Gold and Silver heat embossing to compliment the foil on the papers. The gift cards are 3″ x 3″ and I have cut the DSP to 2 3/4″ to allow enough of an ‘edge’ to peek through of the base card. I folded the Gold Foil Snowflake concertina style and adhered the centre to the gift card, so it really ‘pops up’. The best part is – you can either gift the box and the cards, or use the cards and then pop a gift in the Mini Pizza Box for someone.
We will be making this gorgeous set at a card class at the end of November. These papers aren’t part of our current Designer Series Paper Sale where you can Buy 3 get 1 FREE – but you could certainly use the ones that are to create your own version!
I hope you like my project. Now its time to hop on over to Monique and see what she has created for you all.
Don’t forget to create your own and pop on over to the Facebook Challenge page and upload your creation!
