Christmas Cottage and CASE Study #111

Hi everyone,

I decided to play along with the CASE Study Challenge #111 this week.  The muse for the month of October is Julie Stainton and you can see her card on the CASE Study Challenge blog here.  I kept quite a few of the design elements of the card fairly similar but have still ended up with quite a different card.

My card for today uses some bits and pieces from the Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage range.  I love the decorative tape that comes as part of this collection – the music pattern, the green chevron and the dots! I always love things with dots.  I can see myself using them not just on Christmas cards too.  I made the flower using a strip of sticky back canvas.  I tied a knot in one end and then rolled and twisted back onto itself so the flower would stick together.  I haven’t made a flower out of sticky back canvas like this before and it was really quick and easy so I am sure I will be doing it again.  The centre pearls are by Prima.  The stamp was stamped onto the patterned paper using Fired Brick Distress Ink, but because the paper has a bit of texture I ended up stamping it twice in the same spot to make sure the the sentiment was even and clear (one of the benefits of clear stamps!).  The patterned papers and decorative tape were layered and the card came together fairly quickly which is always nice!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
