CASE-ing Christmas: Challenge #2


Hi, friends!  THANK YOU to everyone who joined in our first challenge last week at CASE-ing Christmas!  I'm back with this week's CASE card and my interpretation.  First up, the card we are CASE-ing...


This card was made a while back by DT member Pat.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  I was in LOVE with the fun layout, and so that's what I chose as my inspiration for my CASE.  Take a peek at what I made...


I made my focal point by punching out a large snowflake with a Stampin' Up! punch and a smaller punch by Martha Stewart.  A crystal button from Stampin' Up! and some silver elastic cording were the perfect center for the snowflake.  I flanked it diagonally with glitter paper cut using a die from Paper Sweeties.  A few rhinestones add a bit more shine to the top of this card.


It was then time for me to add a sentiment.  This one from Great Impressions was heat embossed with silver powder by Stampendous! onto some specialty paper from Core'dinations.  The sentiment panel was punched on either end to create a banner.


All that was left was to create a card base with some patterned paper, banner dies, and other specialty papers.  I am totally loving this card--the soft wintry colors make me so happy!  What do you think of it?  I'd love for you to leave me a comment and let me know!



That's all for me today!  I'll be back next week with another card for CASE-ing Christmas, and I hope you hop on over and join in our current challenge!  I cannot wait to see what you will create for us!  HUGS and MERRY stamping to you all!

I think it's great how we can pick inspiration from others and get an outcome that looks very different!
I love Pat's card, purple is a favorite color of mine, it feels so warm and the layout is brilliant. Yours is wonderfully wintery! Love your layered snowflake and the blue color scheme.
