A Christmas CASE


Recently I saw a stunning Christmas card made by Cheryl Joshua at My Card Making Heaven using a Monday Mojo sketch and a Christmas wreath. Not long after seeing this card I found this wonderful snowflake wreath stamp by Hero Arts and knew I wanted to use it to CASE Cheryl's card. I used my SU markers to add some different greens to the stamp and used a SU sentiment across the middle. Some red, green and clear rhinestones make it sparkle!

I did this CASE from memory so missed a few of the layout elements - but then I didn't want it to be exactly the same as Cheryl's either. Inspiration from other talented bloggers is at such a high standard - and I have sooo many ideas tucked away for use someday. Thanx to everyone out there who inspires me everyday - and that's NOT just to crafters - I get inspiration from many different people in many different ways!

Take care

Simply gorgeous Debbie! I love that new CB folder...it looks so elegant. I'm thinking I would like to try making a wedding card with it. Love that beautiful wreath stamp too. I may have to get that one for myself:))
