CASE-ing Christmas Flaked Out

     Today sees the beginning of another challenge at CASE-ing Christmas. Each week we have a card for you to CASE, there are few limits on what you create, as long as we can still see something of the original card then that's it.
     To CASE Anita's card I decided to use the sketch and tweak it to fit a couple of other Christmas challenges.
     I have used a Memory Box die to cut my snowflake burst in blue card, it is backed with white glitter paper so the snowflakes sparkle.
     The backing paper is something I've had around for ages, it was just what this card needed. The border strip is cut using a Marianne die in plain white card.
     I have used three of the snowflakes cut from the blue card to accent above the border and added tiny light blue gems in the centre of each.
     The greeting is a silver peel off, I tried a few other colours and styles but I didn't like how they looked. The greeting had to go here as the burst looked empty in the middle .
     Come over and join in the CASE-ing Christmas fun, it's a great way to build up your stash.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
ABC Christmas Challenge - E is for Edging Punch or Die
Merry Monday - Monochromatic Blues

    1. Hi Chris, a sketch is a plan for a design layout to be used, pop over to The Male Room http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/dt-call-and-challenge-05-sketch.html and have a look at the sketch I used for the card we made at Keep On Crafting. I hope this helps my trusty assistant!
