CASE-ing Christmas: Trimmings!


Hi, all!  It's time for another challenge for CASE-ing Christmas--AND WE'VE GONE TO MONTHLY CHALLENGES!  That's right!  Each month, on the 5th starting at 6:00am CST, we will start a full month challenge for you to link up your holiday creations!  This month, we are CASE-ing our lovely Steph!  Check out her GORGEOUS original card...

Isn't that absolutely STUNNING?!  I adored the fun CAS, yet vintage, feel.  I kept the layout and the feel, but did some different colors.  Take a peek...


The trims are a mix of ribbon, crocheted trim, and some glitter paper.  The glitter paper had a beautiful snowflake print (you've seen it here before), and so I just trimmed around the print to create a fun shaped border.


The sentiment is from a fun Close To My Heart stamp set.  I punched it out and layered more punched pieces for a mat.  It was added to the card with some dimensional foam for more texture.


The last step was to add some enamel dots to the card base.  I just love the way this turned out!  I hope you like it, too!  I'd enjoy hearing your thoughts in the comments below. :)


Thank you so very much for stopping by today, friends!  That's all for me for now!  I hope you take some time to leave a bit of love with the other amazing gals on this DT--especially our NEW GALS!  When you're done being inspired, I hope you create something and link it up with our current challenge!  Until next time, HUGS and Merry Stamping! :)
