Very Merry, CTS100, CASology121 & LIM198

Happy Monday, Friends! I have a lot of lofty ambitions this week. I'd like to complete most if not all of my Christmas cards, so you'll be seeing them all week. I'll try to post every day, and if I am successful in doing so, then I will be ending on Friday with my 1,000th blog post. Woo hoo! To celebrate, there will be some blog candy, too!

For today's card I have combined Stampin' Up and Lawn Fawn products once again. I absolutely adore this Snow Day stamp set by Lawn Fawn. 

I hope my card is simple enough because I am playing along with three clean and simple challenges. The layout is from CASE this sketch and is their 100th challenge. The CASology Cue Card is "Festive", and the challenge at Less is More is "More than one tree".

I originally had a white background for this card but it looked too blah so I opted for some tiny polka dots instead. I'm loving the stitched cuts which really make everything looked so finished. The little birdie was colored with a blender pen, and the snowflakes were stamped with white craft ink.

Stampin' Up:
Stamp Sets: Endless Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Soft Sky
Designer Series Paper: Trim the Tree
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Whisper White Craft, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Mossy Meadow, Real Red
Tools: Big Shot, Blender Pen

Lawn Fawn:
Snow Day Stamp Set
Snow Day, Stitched Hillside Borders and Stitched Rectangle Lawn Cuts

I'll be back again tomorrow with another holiday project!

Inky hugs!
