CAS Christmas

This weeks Twisted Sister Challenge is to make a CAS Christmas card - well...this is so not my comfort zone, I love eclectic and vintage, which is right at the other end of the scale. Don't get me wrong I LOVE other peoples CAS cards but they don't seem right for me...and this is a classic example, although I did push the boundaries a little bit and sponged around the edges - oops!

I used an embossed piece of CS that Kathy (aka Wattle) sent me and added a strip of Apple Pie Dish that has been through the Cuttlebug - and you know how I love that! I added a stamped image that I received in a RAK from Krafty Kylie months ago, I chalked it and added silver Kindy Glitz - is that allowed in CAS style, I am not really familiar with the 'rulz!' LOL! The tree image has been attached with foam dots to give it dimension!

So...I have shown this to our household and the consensus is..DH says it look great, Mum said it would be alright for a beginner (I am guessing she is more of an eclectic kind of girl, who made her first card yesterday) my sister thinks it look good (she also made her first card yesterday)...what about you - who can guess what I think...!!??!

Thanks for looking and for you comments - I would love to hear what you think...I am going to have to refrain from adding more....wonder how long I am going to last with that! LOL! It is Saturday night here and everyone is chilling out watching 'Mall Cop' - enjoy your weekend!! God bless you!

  3. Umm - I think I am more in your Mum's league - that card does not appeal to me as much as some of your other work - but hey, if we don't try we will never jnow what we can and annot do :-) It's a learning journey.


  4. Well I think it's pretty Linda. I know you are out of your comfort zone and I think CAS is whatever CAS is to you!! My CAS card had only FOUR layers....LOL!!! So glad you had the chance to use the embossed card!! :)
