Hello! Welcome to CASEing the Catty #189.
Tonight the design team are CASEing the Love, Thanks & Support section of the catalogue.
I think you’re going to be seeing a few Healing Hugs creations – it’s definitely one of the most popular stamp sets in the catalogue!
I have used the card at the top of the catalogue photo below to inspire a fancy fold card.
I’ve used the colours & styling of the sample card, but recreated it as a Twisted Gatefold card.
There are lots of examples on the internet of this style of card (I have no idea who the original creator was). I used Natalie Lapakko’s awesome instructions. Click here to visit her post.
Natalie is American, so the cardstock sizes were based on US (International sizing). These are the measurements I used to match Australian cardstock:
- Base – Whisper White: 5-7/8″ x 8-1/4″ (14.8cm x 21cm), scored at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″ (7cm & 14cm) plus diagonal on the end panels
- Front & inside triangle panels – Whisper White & Crumb Cake: 2-1/2″ x 5-3/8″(6.3cm x 13.8cm), cut into triangles
- Middle panel – Crumb Cake: 2-1/2″ x 5-5/8″ (6.4cm x 14.3cm); Whisper White: 2-1/4″ x 5-3/8″ (5.7cm x 13.8cm)
You can see why the rose from Healing Hugs has been featuring in your Facebook & Pinterest feed – it’s so pretty!
The stamp is naturally textured – a new style called DistINKtive. If you have an Australian version of the catalogue, the inside cover has more information & stamp examples.
