Mixed Media Card Challenge #18

I remember when I first started designing for the Mixed Media Card Challenge I said I was going to embrace the "cassy" (CAS and messy). "Messy" as in, you might get dirty fingers while doing it.

This is the last MMCC for 2015, with a theme of "Celebration" (as in, can you believe in a month we'll be wishing each other "Happy New Year"?!?)  and an optional element of "Vellum".

So meet my cassy card. I apologize for the photo quality - you cardmakers will totally get this - our skies today are offering nothing but "charcoal" and "concrete" as gray hues. Geesh!

How does this qualify as cassy? Lotsa white space, but I got dirty fingers stenciling the embossing paste and masking the presents (from STAMPlorations Party Mates)! How does this qualify as a mixed media card? Well in addition to stamps and ink, I've got

TEXTURE - glitter CS stars from SSS Hearts and Stars, vellum, embossing paste
DIMENSION - foam adhesive, paste, vellum shaker balloon from SSS Balloon die
TECHNIQUE - embossing paste through stencil made from Papertrey Birthday Style die

See that sparkle and shine from the glitter CS, metallic embossing paste and gold and silver sequins? It's a party on a card. Join us with a mixed media card for MMCC #18 won't you?

I'm joining the big parties at:

SSS Wednesday Challenge. It's anything goes.
Sweet Stampin. They're celebrating 6 years and looking for sparkle and shine!
Addicted to CAS #77. They're celebrating 3 years and looking for dimension!
