Christmas Song


My second inspiration card as a member of the LOTV Design Collective. I am really getting into the cas style for some of my cards this year. Why is it though they are not as simple to design as they look? It is getting the amount of papers, detailing etc just right, not easy. 
Image - LOTV Christmas Song
Medium - Copics
Paper - LOTV Festive Trimmings
Die - MFT stitched speech bubble
Other - Stickles, Letraset fineliner for faux stitching, pearl pen

You are spot on there Marianne, I always put it down to the fact we have to think harder what not to add rather than the other way round.

But it is a lovely CAS design and your colouring is perfection.

Many thanks for joining in at Stamping Sensations this month.

I agree, they are much harder to design than more elaborate ones. This is a sweet image and I love the speech bubble die.

CAS designs are often harder but this is absolutely brilliant; love how you use the speech bubble die with the word DP!
Colouring always gets closer scrutiny on a CAS design as well, and you did a wonderful job here :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
