CAS Christmas


I am winding down on the Christmas cards….just a few more to do.  The embellishment on this one sort of just happened.  I trimmed a piece of Deck the Halls paper to fit the front of my card, and when I flipped over the small piece that remained, the little flourish and partial holly leaf was what was left.  I thought it looked kind of neat---already centered---so I stamped a sentiment from Come to Bethlehem on another scrap, punched it out with my extra-large oval punch and trimmed off the bottom edge to line up against the line on the DP….it sort of looks as if it’s tucked down in there, doesn’t it? I added a scallop oval of another scrap, sponging everything, and layering it behind.  Oh, do you want to see the card?  Here it is!


I cut out a piece of holly and popped it up; the final embellishment was some pearls that I colored with Copic RV99…a fairly good match for the DP.  Here’s the inside:

  1. Oh what a cutie. She has the best smile ever.
    I like your card too. I have that paper pack. How many cards do you send? You have been making them all year. I think I might like to do that this coming year but I don't send that many. Christmas cards are my favorite cards to make.

  2. Love those serendipitous things that happen sometimes when we are creating! This is gorgeous. ~chris
