It's Snowing!

OK so we are here in December, the countdown to Christmas has begun and to keep you in the festive mood we have a Christmas challenge for you at CAS Colours & Sketches. We are looking for cards using a previous sketch challenge but made for Chritmas this time. I have gone with a sketch which I just loved but didn't design for as I was away on holiday. Remember this one?

We were doing an evening of white embossing on coloured card at my craft club back in October and this one came together there. The sentiment is a magazine freebie and the card is from a set called jewels. I used black card to make the card blank, adding a liner so that I can write inside when I come to use it

The snow is a piece of acetate, layered on top of the base and the snowflake is a peel off

These two pictures show the dimension I achieved using foam pads. The sticking down of the acetate is cleverly concealed by these panels!

My stash of cards for Christmas is growing slowly. Soon it will be time to write and send them all and then I can start all over again in January! When do you start with your cards?


  1. The snow and the brightly colored blocks really pop against the black background. It's a very festive interpretation of the sketch!

  2. Fabulous use of bright modern colours and the snowy acetate is a super idea. Loving your card!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
