CAS Christmas

Hello my crafty friends. Here comes another Christmas card!! I am enjoying Christmas card making enormously this year as I am making a concerted effort to try all sorts of different styles and designs. See what you think of today's offering it's my second DT make for Cuddly Buddly it's called Christmas House


At first I was tempted to go down the gingham/kraft homespun cottagey look but got sidetracked somewhat when I found red and purple cardstock together while looking for kraft and an idea was born!! I coloured with Promarkers and then went to town with stardust stickles, glamour dust and some flakey stuff from Creative Expressions that I used for the tinsel on the tree. Sadly the rubbish light does not show it in all it's glory, but trust me it sparkles!! The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted. A nice flat CAS card for the post and perfect for these challenges.

  3. You sound far too organised to me Sarah, mine sort of all fall into a basket and come out pretty much the same way. But do like the stylish feel of this one.

  5. Oh this is fab, and I can imagine how it looks even lovelier in person. What is a Christmas card without a little (or in my case, a lot of! ) sparkle, right? :-) x
