CASE-ing the Catty #60 - CASE-ing Judy May!

Welcome!  It is our final hop for CASE-ing the Catty for 2015, so to celebrate a wonderful year, we are CASE-ing a fellow team member.  I am excited to be CASE-ing one of Judy May's beautiful designs. 

I was inspired by this fabulous card & you find all the details in Judy's post here.

Stampin' Up! 'Home for Christmas' DSP and Festive Flower Builder Punch. Judy May, Just Judy Designs

Here is my take on Judy's project:-


I loved the layout of Judy's card & the clever use of the Festive Flower punch, where Judy omitted the largest petals to make a bloom which is the perfect size for a standard card.   The two-toned sentiment was another design feature that really appealed to me, but unfortunately, I didn't have a small enough sentiment that worked, so I substituted a sentiment panel for the gorgeous vanilla ribbon in the original design, rotating the layout 90 degrees to suit.  I used basic black cardstock, silver foil & a Winter Wonderland vellum print (used reverse side up) to recreate all the lovely layers.  The poinsettia is created from silver embossed vellum with a black glimmer centre, finished off with a rhinestone.

You can see the black & silver embossed sentiment slightly better here:-

I must say that I really love how you changed the orientation of Judy's card for your CASE this week Helen. And the monochromatic colour combination is so "on-trend" at the moment and makes for a perfect card. Merry Christmas, Emma xo

This card of Judy's was a favourite of mine too. Your silver & black looks so elegant & stunning with the vellum. I love how you have turned over the gold vellum to get a silver look. Merry Christmas Helen.
