Guest Designing for CASology

As you know, this card won top honors over at CASology when the Cue Card was "Country".


How much fun is it to be GD over there for this week's Cue Card?!



I chose to go straight to the color, and give it a punch up with some blue. Robin's egg blue. Love these colors together. Very non-traditional Christmas card. Thanks to Melissa and the DT at CASology for having me as GD this week. CASology so rocks! (can I get an Amen!?!)


It's a very CAS card. I found a large brown scrap in the cardstock scrap box, and a small one of the blue. I die cut the letters with my MB alpha dies (love! them!), added a legless brad, then topped it with an old semi-clear snowflake sticker. Done and done! Happy dances everyone!

I just love the blue snowflake instead of the "o" in holidays. What a fun card!

The blue letters look wonderful against the brown - and the added snowflake brad gives it a little sparkle!

Love the simplicity of this - and the snowflake 'brad' is the perfect finishing touch! Great to have you as GD this week, my friend!

Perfectly CAS! The robin's egg blue just pops off the page! I would say this is CAS with punch!!

Congrats on being the GD - and brown as the them...how clever (and challenging) is that! Your brown paired with robin's egg blue - eye-catching and striking! I'll echo Shannon: CAS with punch, indeed!

You get an Amen from me too, Bev! Congratulations, first of all, being GD at CASology ... second of all ... what an inspirational card! I adore the blue and brown ... the snowflake is simply splendid standing in for the 'o'! Positively delicious!

D'you know already ... your GD badge is shown as just text, rather than the badge you well and truly deserve! Anita :)
