A big congrats to Pat, the newest Featured Stamper (FS826) on Splitcoast. She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the layout w/ the split panel, but used different dies, slightly different colors & instead of a split negative I elected to add a gray shadow layer under the white on the white panel.

On my card, I used a piece of dk grey designer paper w/ little images instead of the black panel Pat used. I die cut the tree & snow out of white then added a grey shadow layer under the white on the white side panel. The random dots were stamped w/ a lt grey ink & I added a cardinal & 2 ornaments on the tree. The die cut Joy was added above the rest of the stamped greeting. all in all, a fairly quick CAS Christmas card.

Thanks so much for stopping  by!

A big congrats to Sarah, the newest Featured Stamper (FS824) on Splitcoast. She has fun gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I kept the bird & Christmas theme, but I used different images, dies & paper, moved the greeting & made mine a mini slimline.

My little owl, all tangled up in the Christmas lights, was colored & die cut. I used foam to pop him up a bit. I cut my papers on an angle, but not as steep an angle as Sarah did.  My greeting was too big to fit under the angled edge, so I moved it to the bottom & added some sequins.

Here are the Copics I used:

For the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC885), we’re visiting a site called Backyard Bliss & their Pinterest Board where I chose THIS picture as my inspiration.

I started w/ the new Birch Tree cover die for my card. After die cutting it out of white, I also die cut one out of black fun foam, to not only elevate it but also to have the black show thru the spots in the birch trees. I used a grey Prismacolor pencil to add the shading on the trees. For the background, I used a piece of dk grey & added 3 single birch trees. Then I placed the die cut deer in & around the the birch trees on top. I liked the dimension of the two layers of birch trees gives. A pair of cardinals & the Merry were added on top. I used the white pencil & a white gel pen to add the snow in the background.
