Case Me a Christmas Card with Michelle

 I am so happy to be joining my friend Michelle Lupton again this year in her Christmas Card series. 

This is the how it works this year;  Michelle  will CASE one of her guest's cards, and we will CASE one of hers! CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything - but it's not about just copying a card. It's about getting inspiration from cardmaking friends and making a new card with our own twist.  And, of course, the card has to be a Christmas card!

I couldn't decide which card to CASE, so I made a threefer!

My first card...

I used various blue and metallic white paints to make the background and then stamped the sentiment and snowflakes, heat embossing with white EP.  To finish, I die-cut the panel and added a bit of bling. 
Stamps: Avery Elle Noel; Mama Elephant Merry Greetings
This is Michelle's card...

I'm sharing this card at the following challenge:-

My second card...

I used metallic paints again for the background and die-cut.
The snowflakes were heat embossed with Silver EP. 
Stamps: Kaisercraft Let it Snow ; Wplus9 Hand Lettered Holiday
Dies: Cutplorations Stitched Rectangle (used to emboss) ; WPlus9 Hand Lettered Holiday

and Michelle's card...

Lastly, I had to include an Alcohol Ink card, because Michelle has been making some masterpieces with AIs ...

I had to choose an old AI background, because I'm avoiding using them at the moment due to having Asthma. So the colours are quite Non-traditional, but I think it looks festive! 
I used various pinks, reds, white and gold AIs. I then sliced the sheet up and backed with metallic gold paper. 
Stamps: unsure
Die: WPlus9 Hand Lettered Holiday

Here's Michelle's card

I hope you'll pop over to Michelle's blog and see which of my cards she's 'CASE-d' and also check out her other creations as she is so talented!
