One Layer CAS Merry Christmas

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a fun little snowman scene for the Winnie & Walter June Color Challenge with Heather H.

At first glance, the palette and inspiration photo probably seems anything but Christmas, but I think it works. What do you think?

I was super-brave (for me!) and broke out of my usual mold with this card. Not only is it CAS, but it is also a One Layer Card. It even has a masculine feel to it.

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - Comfort + Joy stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti stamp set
Thrift store snowman stamp from a grab bag my son gave me
Versafine ink in Onyx Black
Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Picked Raspberry, and Weathered Wood
WRMK Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper
Core'dinations - heavy duty white cardstock

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. I appreciate you stopping by today and leaving your nice comments.

  6. I can't believe that whimsically festive snowman stamp was from a thrift store! Why doesn't my local thrift store have good craft goodies like this? Great use of the color challenge combo and I like those little confetti images that you added as snowflakes!

  7. What a delightful card! It has such a great sense of movement and energy! I love the color palette and the whole thing is so professional-looking. You have amazing coloring skills. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talents with us for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  8. Well done with a one-layer AND CAS design. I love making this type of card but even I struggle sometimes with not adding something else. Love the stamp image and you've coloured it so beautifully. Definitely a great card for a man or woman, which is brilliant. So glad you joined us at TIME OUT!

  14. Love this CAS card...We are truly blessed that you joined our Challenge earlier this month at Word Art Wednesday. There's still time to join our current Challenge and we'd love to see back. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Isaiah 43:10 which says, “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Have a great day!
