Case Study


I absolutely loved the case card from Kryssi Ng over at the Case Study Challenge and I immediately knew which stamp I wanted to use. I sponged a piece of glossy white and used a circle to mask off the moon. I decided I didn't want to add any snowflakes because it didn't scream Christmas at me, more subtle. I have to say I am really pleased with this card and my hubby loved it. I added the little lemony crystals for the pop of yellow although it doesn't show to good in this photo. It also fits in superbly with the Less is More Challenge which was for Silhouettes so I am going to submit it to that challenge too.


For this card I used the following

Card - Basic Black, Glossy white
Ink - Marina mist, Buckaroo Blue and Not quite navy
Stamp - Forever Young, sentiment from an old hostess set
