CASology Week 233: GLISTEN

Welcome to Week 233 at CASology!

We have a fun cue word this week that brings a variety of images ito mind. My first thought was glistening snow, and with Poppystamps sponsoring our challenge this week, I pulled out their large Laurette snowflake die for my card.

Wanting to highlight the glistening snow look of the white glitter paper, I went back and forth between a white or aqua card base, finally deciding I liked the contrast of the aqua for this card. A selectively stamped Mama Elephant sentiment in white ink finishes this card and allows flexibility in how I use it.

Check out the Design Team cards for more great ways to interpret GLISTEN on a card!

We are looking forward to seeing how GLISTEN inspires you -  just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog. 

I am also linking this card up to the Poppystamps Challenge #28 Silent Snowflakes.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I love that you chose aqua for your card base...it works perfectly with this gorgeous sparkly snowflake! Stunning card, Jacquie!

  2. I love your card Jacquie ! I totally agree, white over aqua is so gorgeous ! Aren't they the colours of Frozen's dress ? It perfectly illustrates the cue word ! Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  3. Simply gorgeous!! That 'glisteny' snowflake is fabulous!! Love it on the aqua-colored base, too. While I'm sure it would look good on white, it really pops against the aqua. Fantastic!! Bev

  4. Good choice on the cardstock, Jacquie. It really makes the snowflake glisten.

  5. Details I love on this beautiful card--the blue card base, soft white sentiment, and partially adhered snowflake.

  6. Great choice with the blue background. Looks amazing with your glitter snowflake. I love how the snowflake points pop up. Nice dimension.
