CASEd Christmas

My friend Sally, of Sally's Creative Corner blog, made a beautiful card yesterday that I just had to CASE.  I loved how she did the layers of dry embossing, but since I decided to use the Bride Specialty Paper, I wasn't liking covering up all that gorgeousness.  The first change I made was leaving off the embossed layers (though I WILL be using that idea in a future card!).  That specialty paper also led me to using the White Vellum Card Stock for the gold embossed ornaments, so it could show through a little bit.

I was wishing I had some of that lovely ribbon Sally used, because I think the gold wire-edge ribbon I used is too narrow, but that's all I had.  I even tried dabbing some Gold Encore ink on a Whisper White taffeta ribbon - blech!  Don't try this at home!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving weekend!!!
