2012-12-03 Cas Christmas
I have been quiet the last week as I have been working on my annual family Christmas cards. I was again able to recruit my husband. It was labor intensive and I was grateful for his help. This is the one time of year he will craft with me and I thoroughly enjoy it. He of course again made the comment this year…”you know we could go to the dollar store and just buy these, right?” I just laugh and then ignore him! We decorated not only the outside, but the inside as well. They are quite different as far as Christmas cards go. So this morning I needed a dose of CAS (clean and simple). Here are the supplies I started with…
and within just 10-15 minutes I had two cards finished
It has been stamped with the Christmas image from the set All Things Grow (Stampin’ Up, retired). The sentiment is a $1 stamp purchased from Michael’s Craft Store and is made by CraftSmart.
I embossed the bottom border with a Stampin’ Up folder of Snow and then added just a touch of glitter glue.
This second card is even more CAS. No embossing but I did pop up the focal image
I added some 3-d fabric paint for the berries.
I am not sure I have a favorite between the two, do you?
