Snow is falling

I have been on a spending spree...   the damage is £75 million  ;-)
It's the start of the footie season - you all knew that right? - and my Fantasy Team is raring to go.

So, here's a quick post with my latest Christmas card.


As you can see, I am still obsessed with snowflakes and negative die cuts!
My inspiration came from the 'Case it' card over at  Time Out.
I tried to include the triple layer sentiment, but it just didn't work against those snowflakes.
It all looked too busy. Instead, I opted for a plain strip of card to add my sentiment to.
 

Challenges.

So fabulous crisp and cool, such precision placement of the DP under the die cut snowflakes! Love the simple sentiment banner, it really allows the snowflakes to shine! Thanks so much for taking TIME OUT and for such a great CASE of my card! Anita :)

This is wonderful, the negative dies are perfect and the way you have placed the sentiment is just right for your card, the triple layer I think wouldn't have worked so well. So pleased you joined us at ATCAS and Time Out challenges x

I really love this CAS card with the negative die-cut! The splash of color from the DP under the layer is beautiful and the bling anchoring the sentiment strip balances your design perfectly. Well done Caroline!
