A CAS Christmas

Here is a very CAS Christmas card which I have made using a small text stamp which I think is a Studio G one (I do wish manufacturers would print their names on the acetate backing sheet!). I stamped it once in red then overstamped, slightly offset, in black. Then I masked the stamped area and sponged lightly around it in red and finished it with a scattering of sequins.

Very quick, very CAS and if you move your head from side to side while looking at it, it reminds you of the feeling after a Christmas morning glass of champagne!

I am sharing this with

Double D challenges - Red & White
Jingle Belles - TEXT me!

  5. Oh, you're too funny about the champagne (I actually tried it -- wiggling head -- and you're right). Love the look with the masked/sponged sentiment and sequins. It's CAS with a lot of character. Thanks for sharing with us at Double D in our Red & White Challenge!
