CAS(E) This Sketch 150

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Hello!  And welcome to a new edition of CAS(E) This Sketch!   This sketch made me think of snowflakes!



Many years ago, when I first started stamping, I made silver and navy card at a workshop featuring a big embossed snowflake.  To this day it's one of my favorite cards and I try to re-design it every so often.  For this card I tried embossing the snowflakes but they were too small and the embossing powder muddied the details so I die cut some snowflakes instead with some silver glimmer paper.  I did emboss the sentiment, though.  And I added the silver cord, just because!

I'm also playing along with The Paper Players where we are challenged to make a clean and simple Christmas card.


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to pop on by CAS(E) This Sketch and check out the design team cards.  They're pretty amazing, just sayin'!
