Cute CAS card

Hello everybody! How's it going? I've been pretty busy lately, but I still managed to squeeze in some time to craft. 

I'm a guest designer at the Cut it out challenge blog and this time our challenge is CAS. 

As you know I've been really digging the CAS look lately, so I've really enjoyed making this card.

To create this card I started stenciling a pattern on a white card base. Then I went throguh my huge pile of scraps and chose a piece of patterned paper which I thought would look good on my card and create a pretty border using a border die cut. Then I chose a stamp; I decided to play with this super cute snowman from Stamping Bella. I coloured the image with polychromos, cut it out and glued it on my card with foam pads. I added the sentiment and then I die cut some snowflakes and put them randomly on a card. At the end I embellished the card with some gems and pearls.

So, that's all from me today. Have a beautiful day! :)

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
NBUS: Challenge 47 (I've never used this stencil before)
Word art Wednesday: Anything goes
ABC Christmas challenge: D is for die cuts
As you like it: Favourite stencil or freestyle background (I recently bought some new stencils and I really enjoy playing with them; the one I used on this card is one of my favourites, because I really like the pattern)

Trio of kittens

Howdy hoy! How are you doing? I've been enjoying the weekend and relaxing. :)

I made this card about a week ago, but I couldn't show it to you sooner so I wouldn't spoil the surprise. But now the birthday lady has already received so it's safe for me to post it here.

As the lady I made this card for loves cats I decided to play with adorable cat stamps from The greeting farm. I coloured the with polychromos and then fussy cut them and glued them to the card. I chose some of the older papers from Maja design and some colid colour cardstock to put the card together. The white circles behind the cats were embossed with Cuttlebug's polka dots embossing folder. At the end I embellished the card with a flower and some crystals. Between some of the layers I added foam pads for some extra dimension.

EDITED TO ADD (18. 03. 2023): I just found out that this card was featured in the issue 21 of Craftworld magazine (page 19). I'm super excited about that! :D
