CASE-ing the Catty Greetings from Santa - CTC104

I have had a couple of week's break due to preparing swaps and attending the  Stampin' Up! OnStage Live in Brisbane, which was a fantastic opportunity to meet up with most of the CASE-ing the Catty Crew and have a short holiday.

This week we are featuring the Petal and Paisleys section of the Holiday Catalogue (page 46 to 49) as I did not have any of the stamp sets featured in this section I used the layout of the card below to make a Christmas card to add to my collection which is growing slowly.

You may be starting here so welcome or you may have come from Julia Quinn and her wonderful card this week.

I have used the Greetings from Santa stamp set and used the scroll as my background and then on the Whisper White centre panel I used shades of Garden Green and Mint Macaron (including stamping off the ink to give further shades of colour) for the group of trees and adding snow falling in Pool Party and a few White Gold Fancy Frost Sequins.

Stamp Set:  Greetings from Santa
Cardstock:  Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, In Colour Designer Series Paper Stacks
Ink:  Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Garden Green
Accessories:  Garden Green Barker's Twine, White Gold Fancy Frost Sequins, Banner Triple Punch, Envelope Punch Board
