It's a sad day for me, as our challenge leader has decided to close CASE-ing Christmas. I feel like I just started! We do hope you'll come hop along with us one more time, and say goodbye to this wonderful team!
I decided to try a shaker card. I started out by stamping the sentiment, then used a circle to die cut the center. For the shaker part, I sewed a little pocket out of plastic I cut from a page protecter, then filled it with some Flower Soft and a few tiny sequins. Under that I layered some white embossed snowflakes stamped on navy paper. I cut into some of my new papers I got on a shopping trip recently with my card making friends. Some twine tied around the top and a snowflake charm finishes it off. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Time for a new challenge on the CASE-ing Christmas blog, and a reminder that yes, it is time to get busy making your Christmas cards for the year! How about a little inspiration? Here's our card for you to CASE made by Asha.
Isn't it beautiful? I love the sky and those snowflakes!
I used the same broken stitching around the edge. The stamped scene is gold embossed on watercolor paper, then I did a watercolor wash over the top with distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with white embossing powder, die cut, and popped it up on foam tape. This is a Stampin Up set called The Newborn King.
How will you be inspired by Asha's card this month? I really can't wait to see all of your ideas!

Welcome back to another challenge for CASE-ing Christmas! This month we've got a card created by Mynn to inspire you:
I love the cute snowman and the drifts of snow, so that's what I chose to inspire my card! I then went back and added some of the same Paper Sweeties sequins in amongst the snowflakes, and edged the snowbank with stickles. The snowflakes are heat embossed with clear powder.
