New Catty Sawp

One of the recent swaps I was involved with on ILWS was an inspired by the new catty swap for Stampin' Up! This was back when the catalogue was released of course but I have only just got around to snapping a picture of the swap I completed - I decided upon my favourite set to use Winter Post but then looking at the card I had to create decided that I had picked the hardest card in the whole catalogue to recreate - I kept looking at the card and for many days did not get anywhere so I decided to break the elements of the card down - firstly I cut all the cardstock to size and then the DSP. I had to use a sheet from a retired set as I didn't have ant DSP from the current catalogue that was anywhere near the shade that I needed (oopps the DSP was from Ski Slope) Once I had done that I cust all the very vanilla cardstock to size and began the stamping - I have to use several stamps a total of five from the set as you will see and there were also several inks I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue and Old Olive. The edges of the card were distressed also.
Once I had completed the stamping and put the card together I was pleased with what I had created but this card caused me some anxiety let me tell you! And I do remember posting on the forum - seriously have you seen my card and Monica had a little giggle! I am sure she was not the only one.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking Debbi x x x
