CASE-ing the Catty Jolly Friends and Hat Bundle - #CTC107

It's December! and only 3 weeks to Christmas Day...I am still busy making Christmas Cards and today I am featuring my favourite Punch Bundle from the Holiday Catalogue for CASE-ing the Catty.

You maybe starting here so welcome or you may have come from Rachel Palmieri and I love what she has created this week.

I am highlighting the Jolly Friends stamp set and Jolly Hat Builder Punch, which is on the retirement list so if you want to purchase this at $52.00 which is 10% discount you must order before they are going, going, gone.

I have also used the owls from the Cozy Critters hostess set, which goes so well with those cute santa hats.

My background of branches are stamped by using Stampin' Markers in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe.  I had then punched out the owls in Sahara Sand with the hats and scarves in Pool Party and Real Red and then stamped the owls eyes and beak in Tip Top Taupe.  I have then layered all the pieces to give different depths and shades of colour and then finally finished them with a Silver and Red Mini Jingle Bells.

The Mini Jingle Bells are on sale at the moment for $6.80 reduced from $8.00 for a packet of 30 each of Silver and Red Bells measuring 6.4 mm.

I did not have a piece of matching Pool Party designer series paper so I used the Brushstrokes background stamp set on an angle to create the border at the bottom of the card.

Stamp Set:  Jolly Friends, Cozy Critters, Brushstrokes
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive, Pool Party, Tip Top Taupe, Pear Pizzazz, Sahara Sand
Accessories:  Jolly Hat Builder Punch, Mini Jingle Bells, Owl Builder Punch, Triple Banner Punch
