CASE-ing Christmas #25: Ellen

Welcome to CASE-ing Christmas! This is a weekly challenge devoted to the holiday season all year 'round and today we're starting Challenge #6.

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,  25th June 2015
And that's all there is to it. Our CASE card this week is this gorgeous creation by Ellen Parker. Lots of ideas here and I can't wait to see how this project inspires you.

As you can see, I practically plagiarised Ellen's card. It's all there - the tree, the black background, bling, sparkly snow, heat embossing ... oh yes, I went all out with this one! :) The stamps are by Chocolate Baroque. The tree is from Turtle Doves A5 sheet and the greeting is from Christmas Magic clear set. I added Crystal Stickles to the black background for my sparkly snowfall. The greeting is heat embossed with WOW Silver EP.

I also heat embossed the tree using Ranger Specialty Embossing Powder Verdigris. Then I threw in a bunch bling and stuck a silver star on top... and ho ho ho the tree is done!
