CAS for the Playground

 I'm later than usual for the Playground challenge but the days seem to have speeded up recently - or maybe I've become slower 🤣.  Anyway here's my homework for this week and this card was inspired by the CAS style employed by Chrissie.  As mentioned by Di I am indeed a follower (subscriber) of her YouTube channel and tune in for my daily 'fix', her videos are so watchable and informative.

 As usual everything apart from the card blank  came from my Snippets mountain.  The background was an offcut left over from another card, always plenty of white snippets around and the deer were cut from snippets of kraft card.  I cut a square frame using dies with a stitched effect and used another square snippet which I embossed using a small E/F with a winter scene.  Deer were die cut and a sentiment produced on the computer and that's another Christmas card for the box.  The theme for the current Allsorts challenge is **stitching, real or faux** so I'm popping over there with this card as well.

Background - paper printed from a Buddly Crafts download
Square Frame - Noble stitched squares Creative Expressions
Winter Scene - embossing folder from Crafter's Companion
Deer and Sentiment Tab - dies from two retired Stampin' Up sets


  1. What a pretty snippets Christmas card.

    Thanks for entering a piece of homework to the Snippets Playground. See you up in the treehouse for a nice mug of hot chocolate and maybe an almond croissant later! x

  2. This is a CAS beauty with those deer and the background embossing adds such a wonderful wintry touch.

  3. It's bust over at the playground this morning, I just popped over to see what was happening. Your card is perfect with those elegant Deer.
