CTC 58 Snowflake Banner

Welcome back to another CASE-ing the catty Blog Hop.  Today I am sharing a 3d/home decor item I made many months ago for a craft show.  I make a banner every year & as soon as I saw this set I knew I would use it for my banner this Christmas.

My stamp club ladies are making this banner as part of their Christmas projects next month as well, so I have a lot of cutting & preparation to do before then!

Ugh! Banners are so hard to photograph.  I actually made the word Christmas into a banner too, but I just can't get it all in a photograph! 

I have used the Flurry Of Wishes stamp set & stamped the snowflake images all over the Whisper white card stock in Pool Party. 

I then used White embossing powder & embossed the larger snowflake on Kraft Cardstock & punched it out using the Medallion Punch.  I love that this punch coordinates with this set too. 
You can see in the next photo I have also punched out Gold Glimmer paper & layered it behind snowflake elements to create a little embellishment for the corner.

 I really enjoyed making this.  Even though we don't get snow here I just love decorating with snowflakes.  The Snowflake Elements are so delicate & pretty & the gold looks lovely as a highlight behind them. It is really sparkly in real life but a bit hard to capture in photos.

Next up is Kathryn , click on the next button to continue on the hop.  I know she has something very special to share today.  I totally love it & I know you will too!
