CASE-ing Christmas #3: Judy

Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas! This is a NEW weekly challenge devoted to the holiday season all year 'round and today we're starting Challenge #3.
Judy's Card

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 (CST) on Thursday, 22 January 2015
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this super cute creation by Judy VanZandt. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.

I've picked the tree, banners, ovals, star, framed background, three brads and traditional Christmas colours from Judy's card and made this:

Here's a close up of the tree. I heat embossed it in gold, applied distress inks and for more shine, threw in Stickles and gems. The patterned paper is from Papermania's Mistletoe Kisses.

Products used to make this card:


Challenges:
Completely Christmas #45: AG + Christmas Foliage

  7. Great CASE (what does that stand for??) A tribute to the original card and you made it your own. I loved all the distress inks you used on the tree. How did you apply that on the tree? It's just beautiful along with the perfect stitching:)

    1. CASE means "Create And Share Everything". :) It just means being inspired by other crafters and using that inspiration to make your own project!
