My FS132 card CASE'ing "Stamp Muse". Emily has a wonderful gallery. As soon as I saw her gorgeous all white wedding card I knew immediately that was the card I wanted to try and CASE. I did change the theme from Wedding to Christmas, but kept the layout with all the gorgeous textures.
I used one snowflake from the new SU Serene Snowflake stamp set. I stamped the snowflake in W. White Craft ink and then EB with SU's Hologram Highlights EB powder. I then Die Cut the Sizzlit's Merry Details snowflake from the Holiday Mini and painted with the new White Shimmer Paint from the Mini and then......covered the die cut snowflake with Dazzling Diamonds while the paint was wet. Must cover quickly as the paint dries very quickly. It looks really Dazzling IRL.
I love all the texture from the CB Snowflake and Swiss Dot folder layers. I also added SU white satin ribbon making the pretty bow with my Bow Easy.
I added another white layer inside and stamped with Heard from the Heart.
The Eyelet Border Punch I thought really went perfectly with the Swiss Dot layer.
Thank you, thank you Emily for totally inspiring me to make a beautiful Xmas card. It was pretty time consuming, so I will probably only make one for a very special someone.........

Nancy, what an inspiration to use these yummy textured layers for a holiday card! Brilliant! I do believe I might need to CASE your CASE, and I thank you very much for this terific idea.
Your swiss dots layers look like snow and your snowflake layers are perfect! Love your shimmery snowflake in the main image panel. Wahoo! I just love this site for the amazing creativity around every corner. In this case, right here, right now with this wonderful card!
Thank you for your very nice comments and thank you ever so much for playing today!
