Welcome to week 18 on the CASE challenge! We’re using another winter sketch as inspiration, this time from the wonderfully creative Windy Ellard, more info here. While I just love her original card, I don’t actually have the stamp set she used. But CASEing isn’t just copying, it’s letting yourself be inspired by someone’s creation so you can make something with your own stash. So, still very much in Christmas mode, I thought I’d fall back on an oldie but goodie.
I started with a thick Whisper White card base, then a Night of Navy cardstock layer and then standard Whisper White on top. The top layer was run through the Softly Falling embossing folder, which is perfect for cards all year round. I stamped the sentiment from Star of Light in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White, then layered on Night of Navy and glued to my card front.
Using a handy offcut of silver foil which already had the adhesive sheets on the back, I cut out the intricate star using the Starlight Thinlits dies, and then used the matching star die to cut out a few wee stamped stars. When I started layering it onto the card I realised the large star got a bit lost, so I used the larger star thinlit to cut out a Night of Navy silhouette, which I think made all the difference. I used foam dimensionals to layer my stars onto the card, and finished off with some clear rhinestones in the centre of the stars for some extra sparkle.
