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 girl...........no, 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
