Hello everyone how are you? Wooo hooo its friday, the weekend is here, we get to spend the weekend with our families..........love it!!!!!!
Ok so on to todays card which I actually made to enter in a challenge............very rare that happens now as I barely have time to look through them. However my fabulously talented blogging buddy Squirrel has a fabby challenge over on Without Words. I've been meaning to enter so many times but then forgot............also it has to be CAS Style...............well CAS doesn't normally like me & it makes my flowers cry & feel abandoned.............
Anyhoo's here is my CAS card.....................
I have to say I really enjoyed making this, so have another flat-ish card to post off to someone ;0) Also have you noticed...........not ONE embellishment...........yeah think we could end up with snow now ;0)
The sentiment is LOTV & I stamped it in Memento 'Nautical Blue'. I cut it out free hand.
I made a frame from navy cardstock from my stash to go around the scene.
The sentiment I shaped before gluing it onto the card, it looked better adding a bit of dimension.
This is the inside & I stamped the Magnolia stamp again, only half of her. I also added a Penny Black sentiment called 'Friends & Family', love this sentiment as this is what christmas is about. Everything is stamped again in 'Nautical Blue'.
The stamp is 'North Pole Tilda' from the new Winter Wonderland collection & I coloured her with copics.
Colours used are..........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R32, R20
E29, E25, E23, E21
B97, B95, B93, B91
C3, C1, C00
N7, N5, N3,
I also added 'Stardust Stickles' to her hat.
To make the scene I inked the card with 'Faded Jeans' & 'Stormy Sky' distress inks then stamped 'Snowscape' by Penny Black in Adirondack 'Snowcap' ink & heat embossed it with 'Snowflake Tinsel' embossing powder. I also sprayed it with Gold Glimmer Mist, its a shame you cant see the glimmer on it in the pics :0( I also added more 'Snowflake Tinsel' embossing powder to act as snow, I did all that free hand.
The snow I made with card, put it in a cuttlebug folder & added 'Stardust Stickles' along the top egdes of the 2 layers.
Well thats it from me, hope you like my CAS card, for once I'm even pleased with it lol.
I will be round either tonight or tomorrow to see you all as I have Payton staying tonight as usual. I'm off now to finish cooking tea, we are having Beef N Ale.............the smell thats filling my bungalow is gorgeous lol.
Thank you so much for stopping by
Hugs & kisses mmwah
