Hello there! Sorry I'm late! My hand wasn't feeling very good yesterday and so I wasn't able to make a card. But here it is today. Because I absolutely cannot miss this! Welcome to CASE Study Challenge 111. We have a NEW October muse! Please help us welcome Julia Stainton! Our fearless leader has brought out the big guns. lol!
I am absolutely sure you all know who Julie Stainton is. I have been in awe of her creations ever since I started crafting. And I love seeing them in the magazines that I subscribe to. Let's get on with it then since I'm absolutely LATE!!! Here we go! Julia's beautiful inspiration card for the week.
I used Julia's layout as the inspiration for my card. I've been trying to make Christmas cards recently so I'll have enough by December. I grabbed my The Craft's Meow stamps and started stamping. I used The Merry Best and Vintage Snowflakes.
I stamped and heat embossed the snowflakes to mimic the embossed flowers and ribbons on Julia's card. Then I stamped the trees from The Merry Best and hand cut them. I adhered them in a bunch on the left side of my card.
I stamped my sentiment from The Merry Best on a strip of vintage cream cardstock and sewed the top and bottom. I adhered it with foam tape. Then I added this beautiful snowflake from Silhouette America online store. To add a little color to the white snowflake, I adhered a button on top of it.
We also have a new Guest Designer! Please help us welcome Jeanne Jachna. She's also a Mischief Maker like me! I'm soooo happy she's here with us! I hope you have the time this week to join us in a little inky competition! Good luck and see you at CASE Study Challenge Blog! :)
