I created this card a while back for a Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. The featured stamper that day was Tenia Sanders-Nelson. She has an amazing gallery of CAS cards. While those are not easy to make for me, I gave it a whirl. I picked Tenia’s Trick or Treat card and used Winter images from Lawn Fawn’s Cute Critters in the Snow.

I cut and embossed three circles out of Neenah Solar cardstock with Classic Circle Nestabilities dies. The small penguin image was stamped in each center with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored with Copic Markers (Y15, Y17, YR15, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, BG10, BG11). Glitter was added underneath each Penguin.

The card base is a 6″ x 6″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The card front was embossed with a Snowflake Embossing folder from Sizzix. A 3/4″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Echo Park Walk in the Park was stitched to a 1 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas cardstock, after the bottom corners were rounded. Before the layers were adhered to the card base, May Arts Organdy Ribbon was tied around the paper strips. The ribbon was topped with a Basic Grey Button tied on with May Arts Silver Curling Ribbon.

The images were adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals. Silver Rhinestones and part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirls finish off the card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles

  1. Oh aren’t those penguins cute?! CAS is hard for me too and I find it takes me longer to make a CAS card than one with many layers….lol
    Sweet card, Beate!

  2. Beate you did a wonderful job of CAS’ing but I agree it is hard to copy someone else’s work. Those penguins are adorable.
