Perfectly CAS - December 2019 Challenge

Hi guys

Firstly, apologies for the silence on here, I've been having a race against time to get all my Christmas cards made, written and sent.  But I'm just about done now...phew!

But now back to the reason for this's new challenge day over at Perfectly CAS.  And there's lots of scope with this challenge, here's the cue card...

Any celebration cards will work for this challenge, just remember to keep you CAS designs to one third of the card or less.

I was itching to use another of my new sets from Card-io which I purchased at a craft show a few months ago, I thought it was so cute.  Here it is...

And the main thing that made me want this stamp set.....that adorable little mouse!!!

On a die cut rectangular panel I began by using a curved piece of scrap paper as a mask and ink blended with the purple/blue shade, upwardly fading it out.  The animal silhouettes and the sentiment were then stamped in black.  I then stamped the star in VersaMark and heat embossed in clear sparkle.  The panel was then popped up onto the card base using fun foam and I finished by adding some falling snowflakes, using a white pigment pen.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Card-io - Star Struck; Penny Black - Wonder Collection
  • Ink: Versa Color - Neptune; Versafine - Onyx Black; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: All Night Media - Crystal Sparkle
  • Die: Create a Smile - Cool Cuts Double Stitched Rectangles
  • Accents: Signo Uniball Pen - White
