    CAS Mix Up February Monthly Picks

    You all did a wonderful job with our February Dimensional Die Cut Challenge!
    There were such a wonderful variety of cards using various ways of adding 
    dimension to to your die cuts.

     Thanks so much for entering.


    Our Top Pick for February
    Janet (Swanlady Impressions)
    Janet did a fantastic job on her card of layering the delicate die-cut pieces to create dimension. The design is superb -  such an original approach! - and the color combination is so pretty. She incorporated the dimensional die-cuts into a stunning collage card, combining them with stenciling, washi tape, and spatters.

    Congratulations, Janet
    Make sure to grab the "Top Pick" badge below.
