My goodness, I'm getting brave! I've chosen to make a CAS card when it isn't for a CAS type challenge!
I love the combination of silver and purple at Christmas, so I dug out some purple Core-dinations cardstock out of a long-forgotten stack and embossed it in the Grand Calibur with a Die-sire folder that came free with some magazine or other, then sanded it and matted it with silver. Then I added a sentiment which was the very last one on a sheet I've had for several years, a snowflake made with a die that came free with Docrafts magazine some months ago and Candi from my stash. It's worked pretty well for a card made out of next to nothing! I think it would make a good masculine card - I'd use a rather lighter, lilacy purple for a woman.
