Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the February challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is Christine and she has chosen ‘Winter Scene’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is Izzy Scrap.
This is a fun die set that was a freebie from SSS during December. I started this 5x7 card by blending Distress Oxide Inks for the background, then I placed white glitter cardstock behind the stars and spritzed the panel with sheer shimmer spray. I used black metallic cardstock for Santa and his reindeer and added snow with a white marker. Lastly, I used Navy ink for the sentiment, and this card was complete!
We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designer...The challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us...It’s a great way to add some beautiful cards to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~

I think I just saw him fly by, Barb!! Never looked so cute - love your beautiful twilit sky!
I don't think I have ever seen star exhaust coming out of Santa's sleigh before - what a clever creative design Barb - so magical with the stars above and slope of snow below and your simple little sentiment! xx
Seriously AWESOME card Barb, and I bet the shimmer and sparkle is amazing in real life! Love it!! Hugs. :0)
Great card Barb, I also have that freebee. Thanks for the fun inspiration to use it :) Love your star die cut behind the sleigh ♥
Barb, this is amazing, so clever to leave behind a star trail! I love it!
I got that SSS freebie too but haven't used it yet - your card is so inspiring!! Love your beautiful blue sky, the glitter behind the stars, and the hilly horizon!
Beautiful card, Barb ! Love your gorgeous blue sky and what a great idea all these stars behind Santa's sleigh. This die cut is definitely one to have, it makes such a perfect silhouette for christmas cards. So happy to be guesting with you for this challenge. And thanks so much for sharing and for playing along at ATSM.
Wow, I love the gorgeous colors you used for the sky! The trail of stars must be spectacular IRL, with the glimmer paper! Sue N
The black silhouette of the Santa's sleigh with reindeer beautifully pops on the gorgeous sky, Barb! I love that you added the glittery trail of stars to the sleigh, and that you created an effective contrast between the sky and the snow hill by arranging only the sentiment in the middle of the white hill.
p.s. Maybe I could get a ride on one of the reindeer to tour around the east coast! ;-P
That star field swoosh just makes this delightful.
Barb, beautifully blended sky to showcase your Santa and sleigh. Fantastic card.
What a great scene with Santa and his reindeer flying through the sky, Barb! Love the snowy sky and glittery stars!
Simply perfect Winter scene for the CCC Challenge, Barb. Love how Santa and his reindeer and flying along a path of die cut stars:-) TFS Love and Hugs...Nancy
Such a fun scene with Santa's sleigh leaving a trail of stars! Love the colours in your blended sky too, beautiful CAS design, Cathy x
This shimmery and schparkly composition is so perfectly balanced, Barb! You are the queen of blending and I just love the color of that sky behind the silhouette Santa and his team of reindeer. I think in real life there is a starry trail behind the sleigh, so I love them! And your sediment is perfect! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! I hope you are keeping well! Hugs, Darnell
Another wonderful Santa scene card. Love the trail of sparkly stars… makes it even more magical. Beautiful blended sky, too.
What an amazing clean and simple card!!
This is a total wow card! Your ink-blending is so rich and beautifully blended and your sentiment is so simple and elegant. Love this!
Love the die cut stars in the wake of Santa's sledge as he hurtles across your inky sky.
Thanks for linking up at HLS CAS Barb. :)
I love how you used the freebie for this CAS card, Barb. I may have to CASE it.

Sweet!! Love that gorgeous sponged sky Barb. The colours are amazing. So perfect with the silhouette of Santa and his reindeer. Love the star galaxy element and the adorable sentiment. xx
Santa in the sky is always magical and your little trail of stars is a perfect detail. x
What a great card! I really love the trail of stars behind Santa's sleigh. I think I can hear him say "and to all a good night", as he leaves. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More!
