Karin CASE: Winter Wonderland

My super talented blog buddy, Karin, sent me this Christmas card and I knew I had to CASE it. With a need for even more Christmas cards than I had started, I figured these would be easy to mail, but still lovely...hopefully! I created the first one (farthest right, I believe, in the image below) and wasn't in love with it, so I left it. But when I went back to check on the liquid pearls, it had grown on me, so I created the other three as quick and simple mailable cards.

Here's Karin's beauty

And one of my CASE attempts

And here's the four attempts. While they took a little to grow on me (I instantly loved her color combo, but used Not Quite Navy and Bordering Blue on mine), I am now quite fond of these simple beauties. I used some liquid pearls on the tree branches to creat my own little 'snow' bundles and add some sparkle.

The tree image is one Chelsey gave me from Gina K's Tree Silhouettes.

Thanks for the inspiration, Karin!


  1. Well done :) Love the snow banks and your colour combo worked out wonderfully. Hoping things aren't too crazy for you this week :)

  2. No. WAY! I can't believe you made these beauties from my humble card! YOURS are so, so pretty and MUCH better than mine...LOL! I really like the blue and white better too, I was just trying to be different. And you are reminding me to dig out my liquid pearls...I have to branch out from the stickles! If I don't get back here this week, Merry Christmas and I'm thankful for you my cyber friend...You are too sweet :)
