I love the Merriest Moments Bundle from the July – December 2021 Mini Catalogue so I decided to show a card that I CASED from the publication. On Thursdays my Border Buddy Patsy Waggoner from US and I find a card that inspires us from a current Stampin’ Up! catalogue. Then we CASE the card and love showing you how you can use the ideas in the catalogue to inspire you. What does CASE stand for? Copy And Selectively Edit or some might say Copy And Share Everything.
my case card
When you CASE, you can copy it exactly, or selectively edit it by changing the colours or the stamp set or both. I decided to copy it exactly to show how easy it is to recreate when you break it down into steps. This card could look complicated but it’s really easy!
One of the coolest things about the Merriest Moments Bundle is the unique Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing folder. It includes a traditional 3D Embossing Folder but you can cut it out at the same time with one pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine!
Create Card Yourself
This card is so beautiful in real life. Here’s how I created it:
- Stamp all the leaves, holly and ivy in Old Olive, Soft Succulent and Real Red ink and cut out with coordinating dies using the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
- Cut out the large focal piece with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder – it cuts out and embosses in one pass through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
- Emboss the front of the Soft Succulent card base
- Add some white highlights around the edges with a dauber and the White Craft Ink
- Add Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2″ Ribbon, Linen Thread and then start popping up all the elements with Stampin’ Dimensionals
Watch my Video Tutorial
I recorded this video on my Facebook Page and my Youtube Channel on October 24th sharing how to create the card step-by-step.
I made two cards on my video and the second card is a take on the other card on page 43 of the Mini Catalogue. I did change up the colours but left the layout similar to the original.
Do you love the pop of pink? I used Melon Mambo cardstock but Positively Pink ink. Here are two different takes on the poinsettia and leaf elements.
