Another fortnight’s rolled round and today sees the start of another wonderful challenge at Time Out.  This time our theme is CASE With Your Own Twist … and our designer to CASE is the super talented Aimes at Crafting Confessions.  Here’s my take …

Time Out 20 DTbased on Aimes’ light, airy, snowflake and hearts card …

Let it Snow

I focussed on the blue snowflakes for my card, with my twist being the change from Aimes‘ touch of pink in the hearts, to a touch of red … it makes the Christmas sentiment pop!  I die cut a Uniko Studio snowflake in blue vellum, coated it with Wink of Stella and set it aside to dry.  The medium and small snowflakes (from Uniko Studio and Hero Arts respectively) were stamped in different blues and the sentiment (a blend of SSS and Hero Arts) was added below.  They were all shimmered up with Wink of Stella.  I attached the vellum snowflake, only adhering it in the middle to allow the delicate edges to curve up off the card.  A pearly blue mat was adhered flat to the card base and the panel was popped up onto it.  I finished by adding a clear gem to the centre of each snowflake … here’s a close up of the sparkle …

Time Out 20 DT Close UpSo, how will you CASE Aimes‘ card … and what will be your twist?  There’s inspiration galore from our fabulous Guest Designer, Milla and our wonderful Design Team over at Time Out … have a meander over and enjoy exploring!  I do hope you’ll find some time to have fun and play along … look forward to seeing you in the gallery!

    Gorgeous card, Anita!! The way you combined the die cut vellum snowflake with the stamped snowflakes is perfect! Great designing here. Also, big congrats on your shout-out at MFW! Loved those tall trees : )

    Another stunning beauty Anita! I love your CASE. The use of the different colours of inks for the snowflakes with the bold red sentiment against your signature linen textured card stock is just so beautiful. That velum snowflake adds another elegant feel and your finishing touch rhinestones are, well, the perfect finishing touch!

    How did I miss this beautiful card???!!! I must have been having a giant brain fart. Soooo sorry! You’ve done a marvelous CASE of Aimes card. She must be so pleased at how you’ve taken her lovely card and made it your own. Very, very cool. LOVE the vellum off-the-base snowflake. And that smidge of red makes your whole card come together. Fantastic dear friend. bisous, bisous. : )

  11. Shona Chambers

    Such a pretty CASE of Aimes’ card, she would love it for sure!! I’ve never seen blue vellum before but must keep an eye out for it. Its perfect for your snowflake and the colour goes beautifully with your other flakes. Simply gorgeous!
