CAS(E) This Sketch 189!

Thursday, September 8, 2016

Today I've got another Christmas card to show off with a little help from Leigh's design at CAS(E) This Sketch along with the colors at Merry Monday.



I really wanted to take the circle element on the sketch and use a snowflake.  And the idea of a gold snowflake against a black background seemed like a good choice.  The only problem I faced was that the Merry Monday challenge also wanted white and I didn't want to spoil the drama of the black and gold.  What to do.  What to do.  Vellum to the rescue!  I embossed the sentiment in gold on a vellum layer and put it right across the center of the snowflake.  It's quite pretty in real life and, of course, I had a hard time getting all that prettiness across with my meager photography skills but it doesn't look half bad here!

The gals at CAS(E) This Sketch have made some beautiful cards with this sketch so be sure to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery this week!

Supplies
Stamps:  Jingle All the Way (Technique Tuesday)

Brilliant solution to get the white in there, Jen. This turned out fabulously!! LOVE that gold snowflake against the black background, and the sentimentally vellum doesn't detract one itty bit from it. I'd even say it enhances your design. Wonderful card!! Bev
