CASE-ing Christmas Golden Memories

     This week at CASE-ing Christmas we have a gorgeous card by DT member Pat to inspire us. I loved the simplicity of her card, it really makes the sentiment stand out. To see Pat's card and all the other DT inspiration pop over to our challenge blog.

     I have a set of stamps from Hot Off The Press called Christmas Cheer, they are all chalkboard style stamps which are perfect for a quick make.
     I stamped and embossed in gold on card suitable to use alcohol markers. The word 'season' was the only colour on the sentiment before a tiny gem was added to the little snowflake.
     The mount is a layer of white card coloured around the edge with the same marker so they match.
     The background is embossed with a snowflake folder I borrowed from a friend (thanks Rene), I shall have to get one of these myself.
     A very simple card to make and great in different colour combinations, like this one in silver and purple. There are eight different sentiments in the set so a few more of these will be popping up through the year.
     Come over to CASE-ing Christmas and join us, when you get to November you'll be glad you did!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Jingle Belles - Let It Snow
