Addicted to CAS Challenge #150 - Snowflake



Hi all...Kylie and the DT have had a break for the holidays, and today starts our first challenge of the new year at Addicted to CAS! Also with the start of the new year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our four new DT Members:


Our Hostess is Angie and she is challenging everyone to create a card using the Code Word ‘Snowflake’.
Our Guest Designer is Hillary (winner of challenge #148) and she has created a beautiful card to inspire everyone!

As a Christmas gift to myself, I bought an older set of MFT Snowflake dies, which are the most gorgeous snowflakes I've ever seen...hands down! 


The elegant details in this set of dies are truly amazing...check them out Here. I layered a small snowflake and gold sequin to the center of the large one and placed it on the stitched scallop border. The gold striped patterned papers are from PTI and the sentiment is from a new stamp set by MFT.

Ok, now we would love to see how the code word ‘Snowflake’ inspires you! If you would like to see inspiration from the Design Team, and play along with us, visit the ATCAS Blog HERE ~


Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies:
Stamps: MFT - Snowfall of Blessings (sentiment)
Dies: MFT - Stylish Snowflakes, Stitched Scallop Basic Edges
Misc: PTI - Glod Luxe Foil Patterned Paper (retired); Ranger - Super Fine Gold EP

This card is stunning, I love the gold shine, the detail in the snowflake and the wonderful sentiment. Using landscape orientation is very effective for this card. I think it is something I must try more often. Thank you for all your support and lovely comments, you have really given a boost to my confidence. I am looking forward to taking part in more challenges this year xx
