CAS Christmas Reminder

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

I used a NBUS stamp set from MFT (Iconic Christmas). There are lots of really cute little trees, deer and ornaments in this set, so I'm sure I'll be using it again. I created the background with Distress inks and a white Gelly Roll pen, then spritzed Shimmer Spray to add sparkle to the sky. I also used Grout Grey cardstock for the card base for contrast.

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!

I'm also entering this card for Darnell's NBUS Challenge #41 ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Stamps: MFT - Iconic Christmas
Dies: MFT - Iconic Christmas, Stitched Arch STAX
Misc: Tim Holtz - Distress Inks; Imagine - Shimmer Spray; Stampin' Up - Crystal Gems

CAS Christmas Card Challenge

Hi there, blog friends! It’s time for the August challenge at CAS Christmas. Our Hostess is the amazing Trina and she has chosen ‘Pine’ for our prompt. We have 2 Guest Designers this month ~ Elizabeth from Paper Sweetness and Lucie from Lucie G Cards.

I started by embossing a panel with Richard Garay's Pine Needles EF, then adding my NBUS sentiment from The Greetery. Lastly, I mounted the panel on a red card base and added a few red gems...quick and CAS! Here is a close-up of the embossed panel ~

We hope you’ll stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the beautiful Christmas cards by our DT and Guest Designers. The challenge ends on the 24th, so you have plenty of time to play along with us. It's a great way to add some beautiful cards to your Christmas card stash! I hope to see you there ~
