Dear Santa (X 2)....CAS(E) this Sketch #54, Just Us Girls #215, Pixie's Snippets Playground, Less is More

Hello,

A brief zip back in to share two cards sharing similar elements.  When I saw this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #54,

 and embarked on a variety of 'starts' (and subsequent recycles/re-uses), I remembered my mini folder dies. Play time!

First card is for the following challenges: CAS(E) this Sketch #54, Pixie's Snippets Playground: Week 99 (such a delightful place!), Less is More: Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way (I know...me entering a 'cas' challenge.  I hope I'm not too far off base - if I am, just let me know and I'll scoot away) and Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for November: Anything Goes.


The second card is for the same challenges, with the addition of Just Us Girls #215, colour challenge of red, kraft, white and brown. 

The brown is on the 'inside" of the folder; hopefully, you can see the tab...

Here they are side-by-each:


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  2. You totally hit CAS on the mark, Miss Carol!! I love these! Love the "office" look, like something "from the desk" of sending a very serious memo to a Mr. S. Claus!!! Brilliant, and just so sweet! Just like you ;)

  18. ...google just ate my post....I think (sorry if it shows up twice).

    Now THIS is what creativity is all about! You have turned a mini folder die into two amazing Christmas cards!!! Beautifully clean and simple, amazing DP selection, and awesome design. The "Dear Santa" on the notebook paper....beyond clever and totally cute!!! Great choice of sentiments (the fonts seem to be in total harmony with the colors that you used)

    I'm calling winner, winner on these cards!
