CAS Christmas Squares

When I was cutting the images apart from the Duck the Halls set from FireCracker Designs by Pamela, I noticed that the little accessory images were soooo cute! Again, here's a case where those litte accessory images don't receive the attention they should so I decided to make this CAS card to feature them. I have take about 100 pictures of this card and can't seem to get a good shot of that red square...sorry!

For each square, I choose a medium color of cardstock. I stamped the images in a shade or two darker of ink and sponged that same ink all around the edges. I attached the squares to a white card base and added a sentiment.

Don't miss the sale over at FireCracker (now at 50% off) and get your order in by December 15th as they will be closed for the rest of the year! They have gift cards too!

Stamps: FireCracker Designs by Pamela Duck the Halls
Paper: Papertrey White, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Ruby Red

I really like how you used different of the mini stamps on each square! I like them to for fill in's here and there but when I go to actually use them I sometimes and floundered at where or how to place them LOL! Using them to make backgrounds is an EXCELLENT idea!
