CAS[E] this Sketch #198

There are times, when viewing the next great Sketch, I wonder what the designer's inspiration was ... you know?  This one nearly stumped me, N@ =]


I had a few snippets still on my desk, and they saved me, once again!  NEVER throw those pretty little useable goodies away, is what I've learned lately ... like these darlings: 


... can make this happen:


I'm totally loving my newest little embossing folder - Richard Garay, you've made my holiday cards this year!

Okay!  Let's all run over to CAS[E] this Sketch #198 to see what my talented teamies have created!  You'll join us this week, won't you?

I have a couple of boxes of die cuts and bits and bobs just waiting their turn, lol! (small boxes...) What a great take on that sketch, Miss Girl. I do love the the white on white texture, then the beautiful red and green elements. What a wonderful Christmas card! Love it! Bev

You sure know how to make the most of your snippets, my friend! I love how you looped the sprig onto the 'y', and how you grounded your sentiment with the holly die cuts! You're right about the embossing folder, too...it's really spectacular, Michele! Another really beautiful card!

You are full of magic, Michele, you really are! I was at Hobby Lobby last week and that embossing folder flew into my hand! How'd you do that? I know! By creating stunning cards like this! Woweee! Look at this beauty. I adore what you did with the top and bottom of the card and then added the glorious joy in the middle. Happy sigh! Look how you tucked that pine needle piece in the y. You are so good at what you do! Hugs! :)

A white on white, texture-y beauty, Michele ... that little cluster of holly and pine with the joy (oh the joy!) and berries is simply gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

That embossed background in white is pretty fabulous. Especially since the greenery and sentiment are so colorful. What a wonderful pop they make on this festive card.

Just perfect, and so elegant! Wonderful placement of the berries and the spring of greenery!

Ok... can't find any details of this embossing folder anywhere!!!
