FS128 JPA does CAS

Since I have so little stamping time now, I’ve been wanting to try doing a Clean and Simple card (so not my usual style). I liked this card from today’s Featured Stamper but I couldn’t figure out how I could simply do the little buildings. So I was about to give up when I saw this card in the CAS gallery which provided me a perfect sketch.

The things I changed on the FS card were the colors (blue instead of yellow), the sketch, and eliminated the buildings and made santa the focal point.

I could hardly stand all that white....kinda hurt my eyes it was so bright! Ha! It is kinda growing on me though! I am proud to say that this card only took about 20 minutes to complete. THAT is motivating to me. Clearly I need a little practice in photographing an all white card!

Stamps: A Muse Santa’s Silhouette, CC Designs AmyR Christmas Sentiments
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky
Ink: Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Night of Navy
Accessories: Glitter from Mike’s, glue pen, white gel pen, 1 ½” circle punch, post it note for a mask
