Here's how you play along. Each week you'll be given you a card to CASE and ... you CASE it! It's as easy as that. If you've never CASEd a card before, here's how you do it:
- Look at the photo of the card to CASE;
- Be inspired by some elements of the card - the colours, layout, image, embellishments, etc
- Make a card based on that inspiration and link it up at CASE-ing Christmas Challenge Blog by Noon (Central) / 6pm (UK) on Thursday, 5th February 2015.
I've picked the snowflake, silver, ribbon, colour combo and sketch to make a chalkboard inspired card. For the background I blended Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks before heat embossing the snowflakes from CB Snowy Scenes in silver. I also added a few blobs of silver Liquid Pearls. The black and grey stitched ribbon is a perfect match.
To get the chalkboard look, I stamped the sentiment onto Bazzil Black CS with VersaMagic Cloud White. The snowflake is made by layering a couple of flakes (!) cut out using Spellbinder dies and is held in place by a black brad.
