Going dotty for Christmas...


Happy Friday-Eve! Ready to check out a new CASE Study? I hope so!

We've got this beauty to study from our super muse for October, Julia Stainton:

Check out the original post of this card here.

I was taken by Julia's layout, circular embellishment and her fun polka dots. Taking all of this along with a pinch of premature Christmas cheer resulted in this:

Season's Greetings

Oh I'm feeling so smug that I have a Christmas card whipped up in's not my usual approach to my Christmas crafting! Note to self: Don't feel too smug, there's a load more of these to whip up before Dec 25th! *wink*

This card features another great set from Clearly Besotted Stamps called Signature Christmas. I love the mix and match elements in this set!

Be sure to feast your eyes on what the rest of the CASE Study DT created for your viewing pleasure and inspiration:

We hope you find time to study along with us :) 

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Catch ya later!

Love the trendy colour tones you used! I've usually made quite a few Christmas cards by now but this year I'm behind schedule - role reversal again!

Love the pop of color that the wreath gives this mostly white & graphic card! I also love the different size of embossed dots in the background!

Christina said...

That polka dotted wreath is sooo cute! I love how you used different sized dots on the top and bottom, too.
