CAS Christmas


Today I have a CAS Christmas card - the first make for my 2018 stash. I treated myself to this MB Pine Trio Outline die and die-cut it with some glitter gold and dark green cardstocks along with a white card base. I placed the negatives back into the card base, adding interest with the green trees outlined with gold. The sentiment is a glittered gold sticker and I stopped at CAS instead of adding more layers which I always seem to do.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:




Thanks for checking in today, and I do hope you're safe and warm where you are! We are in SE PA and the winds are bitter cold but we only got a dusting of snow, unlike those who live along the Eastern coastline and up into New England! Brrrrrr!!

Oh this is gorgeous CAS. The gold outline looks like very fine applique - and the green is such a deep dark rich forest, that it really sets off the gold. Great start on your 2018 Christmas stash. Happy weekend, stay warm & cozy. TFS & Hugs

I am loving your first Christmas card of 2018. The gold and green are just beautiful on the white card stock. I like that you left it a CAS. Sometimes they are the best and this is one of those times.
