Last Christmas I saw a beautiful CAS card that LimeDoodle made.  I wanted to immediately order the die but knew I wouldn’t have it in time to put it to any use last season but I did remember to order it for this year’s cards.

Yesterday, I finally took it out of it’s packaging and started playing with it.  I couldn’t help but emulate the coloured houses and trees that the inspiration card featured.  I copied that part right down to the stickles!

I did change my card up a bit – different “sky”, different sentiment, my scene is slightly wider and, instead of the plain white background (which is lovely – showcases her clever use of the die), I used some rich Basic Grey patterned papers that are the same colour as the trees.

I had a little trouble getting a good picture – the card on the left is not cooperating and comes out really dark on every picture I’ve taken.

Here’s a close-up of the stickles on the trees and houses:

These cards are so cute IRL.  I can’t wait to send ’em out!
