Pretty Party Sentiments- CASE-ing Winter Wonderland CTC 51

It's Sunday, our new night for sharing,so here we are again on a CASE-ing The Catty Blog Hop. You may have arrived from Emma's blog, but if this is your starting point, make sure you click on the links at the end of each blog, to see what the design team came up with .

Catalogue Sample
This week we are CASE-ing Winter Wonderland featured pages 22 - 45. I used the picture from page 31 from the catalogue as my inspiration, but  I didn't want to use the stamp which features on this particular card. Flower Shop and the retired Petal Potpourri were already on my work table after being used to make samples for my October card class, Card-in-a-Box. There are still spaces available for this class if you're interested in making one of these very popular 3D cards.

For my CASE of the top one in the catalogue sample, I've stamped all over with one of the Flower Shop flowers in Perfect Plum, adding a few leaves in Old Olive from Birthday Blossoms.

Next I used Butterfly Basics for the sentiment and pulled my NEW Precision Base Plate (page 14, Holiday Catalogue) to cut the butterfly in gold foil - it works an absolute treat!!!
The butterfly was a substitute for the doily. I had another piece of finer gold foil left from the Tin Of Cards project - must share that with you soon - so I flagged the ends and laid it down first, then a Perfect Plum butterfly, a gold foil butterfly, some gold thread and finally the sentiment.

There is a little bit from many different stamp sets on this second card. I decided the zig zag stamp from Gorgeous Grunge was perfect for under the circular sentiment, my favourite one from Birthday Blossoms.
I used silver ink for some more Gorgeous Grunge splatters to match the silver cording. The Petal Potpourri daisy is stamped in Rich Razzleberry, while the Flower Shop daisy is Perfect Plum again.

And now it is time for you to continue around the blog hop, your next stop is the lovely Liz at LillyLovesPaper   but if you lose your way at any stage, you can check it all out at CASE-ing The Catty.
