CASE-ing Christmas: Wreath


Hello, all!  It's time for another weekly challenge at CASE-ing Christmas!  This week, we are CASEing former DT member Ellen, and her card is just brilliant!  Come and look...


I LOVED the white embossing on dark card, so that was the element I decided to use on my CASE card.  Come see my take...


I went for more traditional colors on top of a kraft base.  The wreath image, from a retired Close To My Heart set, was heat embossed in white onto Fairway Stardream Metallic Cardstock from CutCardStock. I used a Sakura glitter gel pen to color in the berries and give more shine and sparkle.



The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps and was heat embossed onto the card base using glittery red embossing powder from Sweet Stamps.  I love this beautiful sentiment!


The last step was to add some ribbon to the top of the card.  I felt it was needed to balance everything, especially the colors. :)  I really love the way this turned out, and I hope you do, as well!  Please let me know what you think in the comments below! :)


Thank you so much for stopping by, friends!  I hope you come and join us at CASE-ing Christmas this week--I can't wait to see what you create using the CASE card as your guide!  HUGS and MERRY stamping, friends! :)
