CAS Christmas with Pigeons

CAS Christmas with Pigeons


It's me again, Jessie Scott, Guest Designing for Gerda Steiner Designs! 
Today I wanted to share some Clean and Simple (CAS) designs for Christmas. It's time to get crackin' ! :-)

I just got my hands on the fun Sportsy Santa set and I thought the Santa hat was perfect to use for my other critters I have ready to go! 
Previously, I had colored the Pigeons set as part of the color challenge on the GSD Facebook Group. 
I trimmed one of the wings from the body so one could hold the Santa hat.

These guys just speak to me in snarky phrases. 
I had some ideas and printed them with my laser printer (toner) and toner-foiled with some Gina K Gold Sequins Fancy Foil.  
Foiling is addictive, so don't look that up if you don't want to go buy a laser printer and Minc. :-D 
Sentiments I used are "This is as merry as I get", "Be Merry, it's almost over", and "Does being good at being naughty count?"

Trying to keep this CAS, I took some white card bases and splattered them with Kuretake water colors (I love how the Gem and Pearl colors shine!) and then added some fun Lawn Fawn paper from last year (Knit Picky 6x6) and added a scalloped frame from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Frames set.

I took the inside cut out piece (since its the perfect width) and trimmed a thin piece off the end to make a strip to frame the sentiment with and have a border for the Pigeon to stand on.                         Time to assemble! 


My snarky Pigeons are popped up on foam dots.
                             That's it!!

Hope you enjoyed the cards and are inspired to get your own CAS Christmas cards going!
See you again soon!
