CAS Christmas Cards Using Stamps You can Win!

It's Crackerbox Palace Thursday and today I am sharing some CAS Christmas cards I made with stamps that are available from Crackerbox Palace. You can win your choice of the stamps featured on one of these cards by leaving a comment at either blog. The simple requirements for a chance at winning this week’s blog candy are below.
But first- the winner of last week’s blog candy of the stamps featured on one of the cards last Thursday is                                                       NanaConnie!  Here is her winning comment from the Crackerbox Palace blog:  “WOW, what a fabulous color combo! Being far beyond 40, I love the sentiment. :-D
Connie, please send me or Crackerbox Palace your address and your choice of which stamps you want, so we can get you the stamps you have won.  And remember you can win another CBP stamp of your choice simply by posting a card you made with the stamps you won to your blog or Splitcoast Stampers gallery and sending us a link.
My cards today are CAS (Clean and Simple) Christmas cards. It is time to start thinking of making enough holiday cards to send out to friends and family and these two cards show that CAS cards can be lovely for Christmas. The dove from Crackerbox Palace is one of my favorite stamps and I stamped it after masking and sponging an oval of Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I added the lovely friendship at Christmas sentiment and made a border with a ek success punch and some liquid pearls. 

My second card features a perfect sentiment and a background made with the Holly Border stamp. I love the script on the Christmas Greetings stamp and framed it with a snowflake wreath from Memory Box. The Holly Border was stamped in Versamark and I added some gems to complete the CAS card.

So would you like to win the fun stamps featured on one of today’s cards? Here is how to win our weekly blog candy:

 1.) We have decided that becoming a follower on both blogs is going to be something we would prefer you do but not a requirement.  My blog is here and the Crackerbox Palace blog is here. 

2.) Leave a comment on either my blog or the Crackerbox Palace blog on the Thursday blogpost featuring CBP stamps.  If you leave a comment on BOTH blogs, you will be entered twice in the drawing.   The deadline to leave a comment will be the following Wednesday at Noon CST. Mr. Random will pick a winner from the comments and he or she will win the featured stamp(s). You must send me ( or Crackerbox Palace (  an email with your home address so the stamps can be mailed to you. If we do not hear from you within two weeks after we announce your win, and we can’t reach you through a blog, your prize will be forfeited.  And if you post a card to your blog or to Splitcoast Stampers with the stamps you won and send a link to Crackerbox Palace, you will win another Crackerbox Palace stamp of your choice!!

I am entering these cards in the Anything Goes challenge at Love to Create and the challenge at Whoopsi Daisy for Things with Wings. 

Crackerbox Palace smiles, Karen
