WMS Challenge #72 and CASE competition


I had to participate in this week's Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge because it's been a long time since I made a trifold card, and this was fun.  My card is a simple one layer card, and I used the images from Candy Jar Christmas, and I coloured them with Colour pencils. (Sorry if the photo above seems dark, I couldn't find a good lighting today).

Here are some close up pics:



And the card was based on this sketch:
My second Christmas card is CASE-ing Tosha Leyendekker.  I love the idea she shared on the Waltzing Mouse November SOAP Day 1 where she made wonderful treat bags with felt and kraft paper.

I loved the treat bag idea, and I thought I could use the same idea on a card as well.
Here's my take on Tosha's idea:

 
I used the same idea but I folded just the front panel, and inserted a tag into the holder.  I decorated the front with Nordic Winter stamp set and Lily Bee Jingle papers.  The sentiment is from Compliments of the Season and cut with Spellbinders Grommet Tags die.

Here's another look at the card with the tag:

As always, I look forward to your comments and feedback.  Have a wonderful day!

p.s. Don't forget to comment this week for your chance to win a prize - more in this post.

Double the projects means double the awesome, Kary! I love your little CAS Sweet Shoppe card with the pretty coloring and that ribbon on the front! Your case of Tosh's treat container is SO COOL! Excellent Nordic Winter stamping...the perfect choice for a wrapper to snuggle that little tag inside!

Your card is amazing, it truly tells a story to the last panel. And your little gift bag is darling too, great stamping work.
