Have Yourself A Merry CAS Christmas...........

Hello how are you all? I made some CAS Christmas cards quite a few weeks ago & forgot to put them on here. Now as you know I'm not a CAS kinda, no, no,,,,this chick needs her foofiness I tell ya ;0) However I need to make flatter cards that I can put in an envelope instead of a box..........postage is getting too expensive.
Okay so here are the CAS cards I made...........
.......I made 3, the 2 at the back are slightly larger, tbh I cant remember what sizes they are.

My first one I made out of dark blue cardstock & used Memento 'Nautical Blue' ink for the 'Creative Expressions Ornate Bauble' stamp & LOTV Sentiment. I cut the bauble out using Spellbinder 'heirloom Ornament 2010' die & also stamped 'Noel' inside from the same LOTV sentiment.

This second one is in gold tones & the gold card I had didn't match what I had stamped the 'Creative Expressions Xmas Scene' in. So I heat embossed the edge of the card in the same embossing powder as the stamped image. 
I used Gold Tinsel embossing powder & the inside oval I stamped twice & cut the second one out & layered it up with silicone glue. 

I used the same Bauble stamp again but this time did it in more of a Taupe colour.......I had card to match this colour well lol. The ribbon is from my stash. I used the gorgeous 'Tied Together' embossing folder which was extremely popular last year, I also added really small 'Mei-Flower Gems', I think it adds a nice touch.

I heat embossed this stamp with 'Aged Taupe' fran-tage & again stamped the inside twice & layered it up. This bauble stamp goes with Spellbinder 'Heirloom Ornament 2011' die. I haven't added a sentiment to this one yet.

Well thats another 3.........oh & also the last card I posted before this to add to my collection. My aim is to fill this basket with flatter style cards. I have to say though I enjoyed making these & it makes me use my embossing folders more............I'm very guilty of neglecting them all :0(

I did mean to post this earlier but I've been watching my favourite christmas film with hubster & Natalie.........Miracle On 34th Street, I lurve that film.

Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by it means a lot. I will be catching up with you all later. I'm quite a bit behind on visiting as I keep getting headaches & dizzy heads..............yep def going for that eye test this week :0( So its short bursts on the lappy for me. I am gonna use the Ipad to do it later but will be shorter messages for now so I can get to you all. 

Squishy hugs to all mmwah

They are wonderful Vicky and you are soooo right about the costs. Dutch Mail will increase again in January, the 3rd time in 1 year!!! So no lots of layers and stuff sticking out on al sides on my cards anymore. Start liking CAS more and more I must admit!!
