CASE-ing Christmas #22: Mynn

I guess it's time to welcome you to another round of  CASE-ing Christmas - a weekly challenge devoted to creating  holiday cards all year long. Today we're starting Challenge #22.

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,  4th June 2015
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this gorgeous creation by Mynn. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.

For that extra special festive feel I decided to go with a red card base. All the stamps used are from Clearly Besotted's Naughty or Nice set. The strips of patterned paper is from BoBunny Mistletoe 6x6 pad. I added green trim on the sides which is cut with Clearly Besotted's Scallop Edges Dies  and popped entire design panel on to the card base with Scotch Foam Tape. And Christmas just wouldn't be complete without bling and shine. So out came the Doodlebug Jewels and Anita's Gems AND a delicious coat of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter on the trees.

I stamped the ginger-people with VersaMagic Gingerbread  and the trees in Memento Northern Pine inks! Talk about perfect match! For the sweets I used VersaFine Red Satin and VersaFine Crimson Red for the greeting.
