CAS Christmas Card

Hello everyone, I have a CAS Christmas card to show you today, using the lovely new Christmas stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I love to mix and match old stamps with new, and this project is no exception. I have created a clean and simple card that will be great for making up in batches when you need to make lots of cards in a hurry, always handy when you have so many cards to make.

I started my card by stamping the pine cone sprig three times across the top of a 7" x 7" white card blank. I coloured the stamp with Distress Markers so that I could get the variety of colours on the stamp. I used two tones of brown on the pine cones for extra shading. I added a greeting from the Bold Christmas Words stamp set at the bottom of the card, also using Distress Markers. Finally, I stamped and embossed a bauble from the Christmas Decorations stamp set onto scrapbook paper three times using a Rudolph's Red Nose sparkly red Wow embossing powder. I cut these out and used 3D foam pads to attach them to the card. You always need a bit of sparkle at Christmas!

I will be back in a few days with some more Christmas makes for you, thanks for stopping by, xx

The shading on your pine cones is very effective & I love the way you've used only the traditional red & green colours (red+green=brown), especially the way the sentiment not only balances the ornaments but draws the eye to the central bauble. Terrific way of using up scrapbook paper scraps.

Hi Judith,
I've realized I haven't left many comments on your blog, eventhough I like your makes. Love this card! Making a sheet of ornaments and then cutting them out for more cards is a great idea. Clean is a look I can't really do. As I usually make a mess, I just decided that I love messy :P.
Thanks for sharing!

A great design Judith. That pine stamp is lovely and works really well as a border. I love the way you have suspended the baubles, I am sure this looks even better IRL when you can appreciate the sparkle. Elaine xxx
