CAS Christmas Card Challenge - Reminder

Hello friends ~ Just a reminder that there is still time to link up your card for the November CAS Christmas Card Challenge. Trina is hosting this month and she has chosen ‘Non-traditional Colors’ for our prompt.

For my non-traditional colors I used distress inks in rainbow order for the die-cut word and stacked it with 2 white die-cuts to add dimension. I used Copic markers to color the holly aqua and placed everything onto a navy blue stitched panel. It was fun using colors other than green & red or silver & blue...Thanks to our brilliant Trina for such a great idea :)

My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire everyone ~ Come on over to the Challenge Blog to check them out, and play along with us if you like! You have until the 24th to submit your card!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

November CAS Christmas Challenge

Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the November challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is the amazing Trina and she has chosen ‘Non-traditional Colors’ for our prompt. Our Guest Designer is Vicky from Crafting Clare's Paper Moments.

My all-time favorite color combo is pink and gray, so this was a no-brainer for me...I started this 5x7 card with the PTI Linen/Canvas Cover Plate on white cardstock to provide contrast and texture. The wreath and berries are from MFT and I chose the sentiment from Reverse Confetti. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the berries...and that was it!

We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designer. The challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us. Since the holiday season is nearly upon us, this is a great way to add some unique cards to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~ 

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Dies: MFT - Joyful Wreath; Reverse Confetti - Winter Words
Misc: PTI - Linen/Canvas Cover Plate; Altenew - Pale Gray cardstock; MFT - Cotton Candy cardstock; Glossy Accents
