CTC286 – Christmas Triangles

Welcome to another week of CASEing the Catty.  This week we are CASEing a project from the Annual Catalogue, but giving it a Mini Catalogue Twist.  You might have just hopped on over from Tina’s creation that has a mini catalogue twist, or you may be starting here.  Either way, welcome and keep hopping around.

I decided to case the triangles card second from the bottom in the image below.

To create my card I cut out a number of triangles uing the Stitched Triangles Dies in Shaded Spruce, Real Red, Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green, along with a number of different designs from the ‘Tis the Season DSP pack.  I then glued these directly onto a card base.  As I didn’t want to take away from the background being the feature, I kept it very simple like the original card and attached only the sentiment in the middle raised on Dimensionals.  The sentiment comes from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set which was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and cut out using one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends Dies.

Next up is Julia.  I wonder what mini twist she will do in their creation.  Keep hopping around to see all of the design team’s projects for this week.

So what will you come up with?  What will be your mini twist on an annual catalogue project?  We’d love to see what you create so please share it on our Facebook page.

Until next time, happy stamping



  1. Hi Michelle, I love your card, so bright and cheerful, is it possible to have the measurements please? Cheers and thankyou, Happy New Year. Marilyn.

    • Happy New Year, Marilyn. The card is a standard A5 size that we use here in Australia, so half an A4 sheet folded in half which is approx 10.5cm x 14.8cm for the card front. For the triangles I used the Stitched Triangles Dies and used the 3rd smallest one which measures approx 5cm (or just under) from the middle of the base to the tip. I hope that helps.

      • Yes it does Michelle, Cheers and thankyou, Marilyn. PS. what part of Australia are you in? I l was born and raised in Adelaide, Croydon. In 1970 when I was 23, I came to the UK ( Nottingham to be precise) by boat Sitmar Line and the boat was Fairstar it was fantastic. My friend stayed with her relations got married and went back to live in Sydney. My mother’s family are in Nottingham and Dad’s live in Scotland. Cheers Michelle, and thankyou once again, Marilyn xx
