CAS Christmas

Hello Friends!  Have you linked up to the coffee lovers blog hop yet?  If you haven't you should!

Meanwhile I want to share this fun holiday card with you.  It is much more CAS than my normal style, all that empty space....I can't barely stand it! ;)  Actually, I quite like how it turned out, but couldn't replicate it if I tried probably- ha!

First I stamped the pine boughs in versamark and then embossed them with this glittery pine embossing powder.  I then added my dies.  They are the  Top Dog Dies Ornament & Tags Die Set #2 and the Top Dog Dies Vintage Numbers Die Set.  I used some fun paper to cut it and cut the ornament holder in glittery silver.  I used an actual ornament hook for this.  I simply cut it down and hooked it directly through the paper.  I finished it off with a Simon Says Stamp sentiment in gold.  

Sent this one to my Mama and she loved it. :)

Happy Friday!

Yes, I see why your Mom loved it: traditional colours, pretty images and, above all, made by YOU! For the record, I love it too!
