CASEing Miriam Prantner

Today's Christmas cards were inspired by the card that Miriam Prantner created for the release of Warm Winter Scene cover plate by Neat & Tangled last year. At the time, I had just received the SOA Winterhaven collection that came with a super fun assortment of village scene dies and I knew right away that I wanted to use these to replicate Miriam's card. Especially since I already owned the Happy Holidays dies by Neat & Tangled that were included in a previous Stamp of Approval collection.

I'm linking up this card at SSS STAMPtember - Anything goes with Neat & Tangled

My first card is pretty much a copy of Miriam's card, using the Winterhaven dies to emboss my background. To make this task easier, I used masking tape to hold my row of dies together, so that I could create several rows, while shifting each row to the left or right for some variation.

For my second card, I created my background in the same way, but used the Joy die and one of the sentiment stamps from the Winterhaven SOA collection to finish it off, and I wrapped a length of red baker's twine around my card and tied it into a bow.

I'm sharing my card at:

Although I realise there's no actual sign of snow on my card,
I hope you'll agree that my background is
reminiscent of a peaceful snowy winter village.


  1. Beautiful. Love that at first glance it's so super CAS. But the detail of those embossed houses is a wonderful touch.

  2. Beautiful CAS cards. Thank you for sharing at Winter Wonderland.
