Merry Christmas

The theme for The Outlawz - Sunday's CAS:  It's almost Christmas and yes, you've guessed it! This week, create a Christmas card in all white with 1 and only 1 red embellishment.  


Don't often do CAS cards, but wanted to challenge myself to this week's color theme.  

This card was made using All Dies...and submitted to another challenge Happy Little Stampers the candles and sentiment were layered to give the embossed look or a little dimension.





The berries were cut from red glimmer paper in Design Space... added liquid glass to create round berries.  Clear Wink of Stella on candles only (didn't photograph well).  



The border was a die and adhered to the card base. Inside was done with another partial die cut of the candles.

MY CHRISTMAS STASH: This is my fifth Christmas Card using the Atlantic Hearts sketches...watch for my next Christmas Card every Monday until mid December. 



Couldn't decide which reindeer to use on my card so three cards were made, each with one of the reindeers using different color combinations based on what the reindeer was wearing. Creating the first card took a little bit longer, but the next two were a breeze.

Give Thanks

I was going through my stash and came across a cornucopia which I put together last year but never finished a card...and when I saw that Bitten By the Bug 2 and Fantabulous Cricut had a "Give Thanks, Thanksgiving or Thank You" theme... I quickly put together a card with one of my favorite retired CTMH paper pack.

Holly Jolly Tag - H2H

While demonstrating how to use the Cricut Design Space to a friend we selected Elmo to show how you could change each cut to one color to use only one piece of colonial white cardstock for the cut, color each piece and assemble, and added some layers.  

Rather than make a card decided to make a Christmas tag using the Heart2Heart Challenge "Anything But a Card".  

Found a great sentiment on Design Space and added a few snowflakes previously cut and ribbon from my stash. On the back of the tag added a colonial white tag for a message or To and From.

These are such great colors for Christmas.  The Sketch lended itself well for my ornament hanging from a branch...a little out of the box but the sketch is visable.  A lot of die cuttings, layered, some 3D thin foam tape and finished off with Wink of Stella on all images.  



Combined the color challenge with the MoJo Monday Sketch Challenge # 474.
