Happy Tuesday. Hope you are all having a great week so far. Before we get to tonight's card, I wanted to clarify a couple of things on last night's post - oh... and I updated last night's post to show the inside of the card I made, too. I don't know why I missed that last night!
The rules of CASEing.... When I case for a challenge (as opposed to CASEing for personal use, or in workshops, etc.), I follow the rules from splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper CASE challenge. For that challenge they request that you change at least two things about the card and note what they are. It became ingrained in me to do that, so I follow the same rules for other challenges, too. So, I apologise if I confused everyone with the "rules of CASEing" and hope that clarifies it.
Secondly, a couple of you have asked me what The More the Merrier set looked like, just in case you can help Pat out so that she doesn't have to go the eBay route. So, I popped along to splitcoast and copied the index card that features all of the stamps in the set. It was a level 3 hostess set from the 2009/2010 catalog. I used the snowmen a lot last year. Here's the index card
Now.... on to tonight's card. I used the sketch from FreshlyMadeSketches last week. They really do produce some amazing sketches. Of course, I had to pull out Dasher and my Mocha Morning DSP. The sketch called for elements on the side of the horizontal element. I thought... ah ha..... I have little reindeer from some ribbon that I have. Can you believe it is actually ribbon? So, I used those for that element.
Then, of course, I had to add a few pearls. Actually, I like the way the pearls pick up the circles in the Mocha Morning DSP. I really wanted to "do" Dasher in flocking powder, but didn't have any brown flocking powder. I do think he would be fabulous with a little texture.
As always, thank you for visiting my blog. You know it means a great deal to me. I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday.
Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift.
