One Layer Christmas CASE

Hi Everyone,

I am combining two Christmas challenges here. One is CASEing Christmas, where my blogging friend Rosi made a beautiful card for us to CASE - you'll see it below. And the second challenge is Shery's One Layer Christmas card challenge. Here the optional twist is use an angel. 
Now it does not look good in the angel department in my stash, but I have one, never used until now....its from Inkadinkadoo.


I did a lot of masking and some sponging. Used a pearlescent embossing powder by Sparkles and Sprinkles.  The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

Here is Rosi's gorgeous card. 




I guess I'll start now making Christmas cards - so I won't run into problems by the time Christmas rolls around, which I guess will be about ...tomorrow....

Happy Stamping!

Fantastic card, Cornelia! Love that embossing powder you used. Great colours and design. Funny that you used the same stamp I did on my card. :-). So happy to see you playing along with us at OLCCC! Hope you play again. :-)

Steht denn schon wieder Weihnachten vor der Tür??? Eigentlich möchte ich erst mal so richtig schön warm Sommer haben.
Aber es ist schon richtig: man kann gar nicht früh genug anfangen, vor allem, wenn man so schöne Karten macht wie du!!!
Liebe Grüße,
Flo

Stunning. That ne angel has served you well. She's gorgeous embossed but to layer with red (or is that pink) ink is brilliant.

What a beautiful card! It has become even more winter after adding blue. Great idea for this stamp. I have it too, but not yet used it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Cornelia, your card is STUNNING! You glowing angel, the red flourishes, the blue surroundings, the sentiment = perfection. Indeed, I think this could be your Christmas go-to card should you need to mass produce (although I suspect that you, as I am, aren't fond of making multiples of the same thing). Love it...
Hugs~c
