CASology: North

I wanted to make a Christmas card for a group - partially for Christmas, partially to thank them for their hard work.  I was a bit stuck and then I had a series of ah-ha moments.  First, I saw the CASology Challenge: North.  More than the challenge itself it was the inspiration from the design team and the people who've already played along.  There were so many cute and charming little animals and snowmen, I realized a group of them would be perfect for my card.

Then, I was flipping through my box of Taylored Expressions Christmas stamps/dies looking for something that I'll post later this week - and I flipped by a set called Quick Critters - Winter.  I didn't put two and two together at that point, I just had the thought that I loved all the Quick Critters sets because they are...well...quick!!  (And absolutely charming!)

Sadly, it took about a day before I fit all those very obvious pieces together.  Those quick critters have little hearts which is perfect for the "thank you" part of this card and there's a group of them. So here's my card!

This all came together at the last minute - so I didn't have great lighting to take this photo.  Here's a different view because there's some fabulous sparkle on it!

I first stamped the sentiment, then I adhered a strip of post-it tape above it.  I very lightly sponged some Sea Salt above the tape to give it ground.  Then using scratch paper, I cut a mask out of the Build a Scene - Rolling Hills die and used it to sponge the blue.  The whole upper half got a spritz of glimmer spray.

I am posting this to CASology because I want to give a shout out to them for the inspiration; however, one of their main rules is "one main image" and I don't really have that.  But there is open space and with the dies, it really is quick and easy to I'm hoping they'll forgive me!



  1. Kim, I'm so excited to see you at CASology! Your card is perfectly CAS and the cluster of critters are really the same as one main image. I love the addition of the tiny snowflakes and the glimmer spray! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  2. Such a sweet trio! Love the sparkle on the background. Thanks for joining in the fun as CASology this week.
