CAS Christmas Card Challenge: Critters

Just in time for the CAS Christmas Card November Challenge: Critters hosted by Barb!
Such a fun challenge with the cutest Christmas cards by the DT, GD and in the Gallery.

Here are my sweet Polar Bear and Penguin Critters:-)

I love this sweet image "Starry Night" by Whimsy Stamps.
There was no sentiment in the set.  I will add a Christmas sentiment inside.
I think the balance is perfect as it is....

I die cut the background of the SU Basic White 100# Cardstock using 
SSS Postage Stamp Edge Frames.
Then used MISTI to stamp the critters and stars with Versafine black ink
and heat emboss with SU Clear EB Powder.

Next I stamped the critters image on cardstock and fussy cut for a mask.
Masked the critters and used craft brush to add the DOX Salvaged Patina background.

Added Connect Glue to beary's hat, stars and snow that the critters were sitting on..
Then added SU Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

I used Zigs to color the sweet polar bear, penguin and stars.
Connect Glue is great for adding little dots on the sky and then sprinkle with
more Dazzling Diamonds.  So Glittery and pretty.

I popped up the image with craft foam and added to SU Basic White CS 
and Done!  I LOVE this challenge and do not think I missed any in 2021:-)

So happy I was able to squeeze in a Critter Christmas Card:-)  
Enjoy your Holiday Season and wishing you all a Healthy and Happy
Christmas with friends and family...Be safe!

Love and Hugs..


  1. Adorable card, Nancy! How willing you are to fussy cut!! I avoid it like the plague. The background turned out beautifully. I find the most difficult thing is to work the background around an image. You mastered that with this one. Love that image!

  4. What an adorable card, Nancy! You created the sweetest scene! The color of the sky is beautiful and the sparkle of the hat, stars, and snow is sooo pretty! You took a great photo.
