CASE-ing Christmas #16: Donna

Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas! This is a weekly challenge devoted to the holiday season all year 'round and today we're starting Challenge #16.

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,  23rd April 2015
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this gorgeous creation by Donna Nuce - the Crafty Colonel. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.

Here's my card. I pretty much plagiarised Donna's work. This card came together easily and quickly... an uncommon, near impossible feat for me. And yet, here it is. What can I say but believe in the magic of Christmas!

No patterned papers, just plain card stock in cream, red and black. The focal image is a non Christmas stamp by Chocolate Baroque from the Fluttering Hearts A5 sheet and the sentiment is from the Christmas Magic clear stamp set. The gold ribbon is from my stash.

In the close-up you can see how I've embossed the heart onto red CS with WOW Rich Gold embossing powder and coloured in the middle of each pattern with dark green pencil.
