CASE-ing Christmas: Challenge #30

Dashing through the snow... I am SO excited that Christmas is getting closer and closer!  If you haven't started your holiday cards, I hope you join us at CASE-ing Christmas this month for our CASE challenge!  This month, we are CASEing the lovely Asha.  Take a peek at her card...

I LOVE the gorgeous snowy sky and lovely scene that Asha used for her card, so I decided to do something similar.  Check out my card...

I used a set from Close To My Heart to create my scene, but the sentiment is from the October 2015 Card Kit from The Stamps of Life.  I added faux snow pen, glitter, and liquid pearls after coloring with colored pencils.  I LOVE all the beautiful textures that are on this card--it looks so cool IRL!

To create a snowy sky like this, you need to start by stamping and heat embossing your snowflakes with clear embossing powder.  After you do that, and they cool, you sponge ink over them, then gently wipe the ink off of the flakes and voila!  I then added some liquid pearl dots for more shine and additional "snowflakes".

I absolutely adore the way this card turned out!  I was worried I'd mess it up, but taking it step by step helped me stay on track. ;)  I hope you like it, too--and please do leave me a comment below to tell me your thoughts!

That's all for me right now, friends!  THANK YOU so much for stopping by!  I hope you come and join us at CASE-ing Christmas, and make sure to check out the inspiration from the other gals, too!
