CASE me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton

So this is my first crafty session in about a year! I was hoping Michelle Lupton's Case me a Christmas Card challenge would inspire me, and it certainly did! Just managed to get my card reveal day messed up, so I'm here a day late but as they say, better late than never!

I used alcohol inks for the background, a combination of Pinata Rich Gold, Mantilla Black, Sapphire Blue and Baja Blue with Tim Holtz Mixative Pearl, Cloudy Blue and Sail Boat Blue. Stitched snowflake diecuts from Lil Inkers, Christmas sentiment diecut from Paper Smooches, Wishes stamp from WPlus9.

Hope you love it as much as I do!

Here's Michelle's gorgeous card that inspired my CASE...

Ardyth came up with a genius acronym to help you make a Case of a card without making a direct copy of it - LIMES. I am going to be using this acronym for all my Cases from now on: 

List: Blue, alcohol inks, die cut, flowers, birthday, two colour stamping, bold greeting, monotone, gold, landscape

Include: Blue, alcohol inks, die cut, bold greeting, monotone, gold  

Modify: flowers  

Exclude: birthday

Spin: Christmas, portrait, curved edge, diecut sentiment 

You can check out Michelle's gorgeous CASE of my card here

Playing along at CAS on Friday (Big sentiment)
