Hello stampers! Is it cold where you are? Brrrr! It's certainly been a cold weekend here in southeast PA! Claire's challenge for us this week at the Paper Players certainly is appropriate:
Remember that this is a CAS challenge!!
Oh my, I must tell you that this is the third card I made for the challenge! First, I neglected to notice the "winter" description, so that one was put aside. Then, the original headline was for animals or birds, but the prompt didn't say that, so I posted that one yesterday, LOL! FINALLY, I came up with this one, which even though I only have "one" animal, hopefully, it's okay!
The CAS Christmas challenge is asking for Silver and Gold, hence my color palette!
Last year, SU featured some pretty gold embossed DSP called Wonder of the Season; I think I used one little piece of it! But this newsprint-style pattern was a fun background for my silver-embossed reindeer:
I added a gold foil scalloped mat and some silver diecut holly leaves and silver berries! I had also embossed a sentiment for the front but decided it looked better without, especially since this is a clean and simple challenge! So I simply adhered it to the inside:
It all went on a plain Basic White card base!
I hope you'll come play with our clean and simple winter animals challenge! It doesn't have to be a Christmas card....I am sure there are lots of other occasions for those cute little critters! Can't wait to see what you create...share it with us at the Paper Players and check out what the DT created as well! Thanks for visiting today--enjoy it and be blessed!
