CASE Study #120

Oh my, what happened to November?  I can hardly believe we're almost at the end of 2012.  Life just never slows down, does it?

One good thing about the start of a new month is the introduction of a new Muse at CASE Study!  And what a wonderful treat you're in for this month.  Please welcome the one-and-only Windy Robinson as our December Muse!

By Windy Robinson
Windy's debut card is so striking and pretty, and I was immediately drawn to the contrast of the colorful patterned paper with the crisp white, debossed panel.

I've been smitten with the Polaroid frame die cutes that are so popular now, so I made my own with a Spellbinders square die.  I recently picked up a 6x6 pad of My Mind's Eye Vintage Christmas papers and decided to use the plaid as a backdrop for the Polaroid frame and holiday Bingo card.

In place of Windy's flowers, I used snowflake dies from WPlus9 and Spellbinders, and I added a sentiment from Paper Smooches.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist)
Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye (Vintage Christmas, Merry)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Swanky Snowdudes)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Cherry Cobbler)
Tools:  Spellbinders (square, snowflake dies), WPlus9 Design Studio (large snowflake die)
Accessories:  button, DMC floss

I had to play hooky from work just to find time to make my card this week!  My kids have gotten so involved in activities this year that free time is hard to come by.  But I wouldn't trade it for anything!  My parents were always on the run, taking my brothers and I from one activity to the next, so I guess it's my turn.  :)

Please stop by the CASE Study blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, then see where your creativity takes you!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a fantastic day!

I love your take on the challenge card. I can't believe you made that polaroid frame. I went and bought a die, silly me! Your snowflakes are such a sweet touch.

Great job making your own Polaroid frame. I had such fun with your card, every element was carefully examined. So festive.

Playing hookie to make a card?? That's a way to take a day off! I feel the same way lately, too, though, I'm so involved I can't even find time to do my favorite hobby :( I love how this turned out, Christina!
