CAS-ual Fridays CFC26

It's been forever since I've been able to play with CAS-ual Fridays.  For some reason, the mid-week deadline throws me off:)  But this week, I had a head start because I decided to CAS-CASE a card I did last week.  Here's the sketch for this week's CAS-ual Fridays inspiration...  
Last week, I did a similar card but it involved a ton of blending inks and die cuts and embossing, etc. (you get the idea).  So this week, I wanted to get the same feel but with half the fuss.   Here's the CAS version of my CASEd card.   
It's a little hard to see, but the card base is a pretty sparkly white cardstock.  The blue panel was die cut to create the moon and the whole thing is popped up on foam squares.  
The Hero Arts cityscape stamp is one of my favorites and it fits perfect across the bottom of the panel.  One little window is cut out of one building and filled with glittery stickles.  The believe sentiment is embossed with holographic embossing powder and in person it really sparkles.  Off to bed for me with one more Christmas card to add to my pile!  
Thanks for visiting!

  1. BEAUTIFUL city scape! Love your window design! So glad that you join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  2. What a great card!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. This card is so awesome... I love the theme..

    Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment on my blog... Happy Crafting..

  4. This is sooo awesome JJ. I love the hole for the moon-BRILLIANT! ;)

  5. Well, it feels unfaithful to the previous card to say that I like this...but I do! The holographic embossing is a gorgeous touch, and not so much that you couldn't make a few the same way if you decided to. I love that you kept the one glowing window, too, since that's one of my favourite parts of the original :)

  6. I love that cityscape stamp and the holographic embossing powder really does look amazing against the night sky. Fantastic card x

  7. Wow, what a creative design! Love the cityscape and how you die-cut the blue panel to create a moon. So brilliant :)

  8. So beautiful concept of night has been represented, I like the moon, but if you show yellow lights on the windows it looks more beautiful.
