CASE-ing Christmas Challenge #2

      Welcome to my first project for CASE-ing Christmas, we are a new challenge making Christmas cards by CASE-ing selected cards each week. For this month only we have CANDY each week, so please pop over and take a look, we would love you to join us.
     This card is based on Pat's lovely card, I chose to use the colours and the sketch and I love snowflakes! To try and match the gorgeous colours of her flower I used Distress Inks Broken China and Dusty Concorde to colour the edge of my white card blank.
     The backing card is Cryogen White, it has a subtle sparkle to it that is perfect for snowflakes, run through an A4 embossing folder Snowflake Lattice by Creative Expressions. Each snowflake has a tiny dot of Sakura Stardust clear in the middle.
     The tag is purple pearl card mounted on a layer of silver mirri card. My centre piece is a snowflake die cut in Cryogen White with Spellbinder Ironwork Motifs with tiny clear gems on the end of each arm.
   
     There is a silver Frosty Border by Memory Box stuck under the snowflake which is mounted on a foam pad, there is also a small silver snowflake cut from the border die stuck in the middle of the white snowflake, this also has a tiny gem on it.
     The greeting is a tiny peel off as I couldn't find a stamp that small in my stash. It is stuck on to a tiny label cut with an XCut die, mounted on foam and purple gems stuck over the holes at either end.
     I have thoroughly enjoyed CASE-ing Pat's card and I hope she likes it, I'm really looking forward to the next one. At least this way I will have lots of great cards by Christmas so I can spend more time on decorations and baking. Come along and join us at CASE-ing Christmas and build up your stash too.
