"CASE anything from all Cattys" they say, but what do I do but my very last Christmas cards for this year (I think). So... looking for inspiration for a nice card for the ladies at work, I came across the Hostess stamps in the Holiday Catalogue, right there at the beginning on page 3. This is a CASE of Holly Jolly Layers. My design has been simplified slightly to allow me to make a number of them as rapidly as possible. Luckily I made them before my bouts of summer sickness began. I had bronchitis for my birthday, and acute tonsillitis less than a fortnight later. Oh, the joys of working with children!!!
Anyway, the weekend has been restful and pleasantly family oriented (7 year old grandson's birthday today) and I have only 1½ days left at work before a LONG break, so I can hang in there.
Here is my sample. The layers on the stamped image are there, there is ribbon and gold thread, even the die cut 'jolly' - don't you love the diecut words? They add a certain elegance to a project.I wasn't sure how far my musical DSP was going to go, so I cut smaller pieces and folded less, but I'm happy with the result.
Wishing you all the joy of the festive season. May you spend your holiday time with those who are special to you.
