HLS: CAS in November

Woohoo! This will be 2 out of 3 of the HLS monthly challenges! (I just entered the November Xmas challenge WITH THIS GUY)

Here's my special little card:

...inspired by this Happy Little Stampers challenge:


  • Core'dinations cardstock; corners cut with a Fiskars punch
  • Some pom-pom thread I picked up a hundred years ago at Michael's on clearance... it was one of those magical purchases where I was like,  "What??? How is this on sale???" Buy, buy, buy... mine, all mine...
  • The bird is also from Michael's. It is a wood laser-cut, and I gilded it with Liquid Leaf in classic gold, then popped it up with dimensional tape
  • I wrote the sentiment with a Zig Emboss Writer and used Stamp-n Stuff embossing powder in Green Tinsel


  1. Fantastic CAS design Mimi! LOVE your gilded bird! Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

  2. The wooden bird is an eyecatching decorative piece on this CAS design. A card perfect for postage. Something I often forget to plan for...

  3. LOVE your gilded bird! So beautiful on that crisp, white background! Thanks so much for playing along at Happy Little Stampers xx
