adventure of CASE-ing Christmas with metallics

The current prompt at Jingle Belles is metallics, and I had ordered metallic sequins so I could replicate the card in the lower left photo on page 119 of the Stampin' Up!® annual catalog.  I didn't really think sequins alone would qualify for "focuses on metallics", so I decided the reindeer should be metallic as well:
stamp set - Santa's Sleigh; ink - Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Versamark; Stampin' emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White thick; designer series paper - Be Merry; other - Window Sheet, Silver 1/8" ribbon, metallic sequins; Big Shot with Layering Circles framelits 

Last week, I glued a card front on a white base and didn't like it.  I carefully removed it and put it on a colored base, and saved the white base - glue line and all - for another card.  White bases look particularly nice when you're using metallics, and I had pinned this card of Daniela's which I ♥love♥, so I made my own version:
stamp set - Cookie Cutter Christmas; ink- Versamark; Stampin' emboss powder - copper; card stock - Copper Foil, Vellum, Whisper White (regular and thick); Big Shot with Softly Falling embossing folder, Card Front Builder thinlits, and Layering Circles framelits
I think it fits well at The Male Room for their Vellum challenge, also.
