CAS Christmas Challenge Mid Month Reminder

Hi Everyone it's time for CAS Christmas mid month reminder cards by our Guest Designer Jane (Onions and Paper) and the Design team. Our theme this month is Snowflake, so if you have any dies or stamps pull them out and come play along with us.



I have a super QCAS card for you today. I stamped my snowflake ball on white card stock in Versamark and white embossing powder. I then blended Distress inks over the image.
I used a postage stamp die for my image and popped it up on foam. I'll be making a few more of these in different colours to top up my stash of Christmas cards.


Here's a close up of the white embossed snowflake ornament.



I hope we have inspired you to come and play along with us at CAS Christmas.

Stamps: Stampit Australia, Simon Says Stamp Christmas sentiments
Paper: 110lb white

  13. Love this CAS idea and blending an entire background smoothly is not always easy. Yours is well done! I've always managed to get a splotch in it somewhere. That ornament stamp rocks too!
