Peace On Earth


     Today is the beginning of another CASE-ing Christmas Challenge, this week we are case-ing a card by DT member Ellen. I was intending to stay with the beautiful simplicity of Ellen's card but I got carried away a little.
     I cut two pieces of card to act as mat and top layer on my card blank. I coloured the edge of the bigger piece with a blue alcohol marker. Then I stamped a bauble in the centre and embossed in Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine, coloured in with a slightly lighter shade of blue.
   
     The top layer I cut a bauble shape out using Spellbinder Heirloom Ornament 2011 so that the hole would sit above my stamped bauble, then I embossed it with a Creative Expressions A4 folder called Snowflake Lattice. This layer is mounted on Stix2 foam tape so that it sits about 2mm above the blue layer.
     I was going to leave it there but it looked a little blank and not as elegant as Ellen's card, so I decided to add a tiny blue gem to each embossed snowflake.
     Please come and join us at CASE-ing Christmas, we'll help you build up your card stash so that December isn't such a rush.
