CASEing Christmas

Hi Everyone,

do you know that CASEing Christmas is now a monthly challenge???  I love those. And it also pairs up quite well with this month Memory Box challenge - Cool thoughts for warm days.
Time to get my gorgeous Memory Box dies to good use.

I also wanted to do that Perfect pearl technique again that Jennifer McGuire showed us and I wanted to do a twist on that. So I inked up my entire card with distress inks - I used three different ones, although the Perfect pearls really almost overpower the color gradient. You can see it a little bit. 

Here is that amazing CASE card by the talented Steph from One Crafty Chica:

Such an amazing card!!!!

I die cut the Frostyville Border from Memory Box using shimmer paper. I also dry embossed the die on the opposite side of the card. Added the sentiment - it is an ancient one by Magenta stamps. 

And lastly I added a thin strip pf patterned Paper for balance. 

Happy Stamping!

Wunderschön und echt toll wie du die Stanze eingesetzt hast! Ich hatte sie auch in der Hand, hab mich dann aber für was anderes entschieden.
