Taking a brief pit-stop from the TCM October Release Festivities to welcome Friday-Eve in the usual manner:
You guessed it. Time for another CASE Study. And time for yet another fabulous card from our muse, Julia Stainton to admire and CASE:
Check out the original post of this card here.
I was taken by aspects of Julia's layout, the use of felt and the sweet strip of card upon which the sentiment is stamped. I took yet another Holiday-esque approach to my stamping (please, somebody stop me, this isn't normal to have so many Christmas cards whipped up so soon!)
Tip: Mix and match sentiments from different sets for a custom stamped sentiment in a font you desire! Here I stamped 'Happy' from the set, Modern Basics and 'HOLIDAYS' from a longer sentiment I masked from the set, Stocking Prints.
Simple red buttons turn this leaf die into a Christmas tree! So very, very simple and fun too. I stamped a panel of gingham down the side of my focal point to echo Julia's gorgeous green gingham on her original card.
I'm keeping it super short and sweet today (I have A LOT to get done before we break up for half term and before my guy and I jet away for a week!) but be sure to get a mojo boost by checking out the rest of the CASE Study DT:
