I hope you all had a good Monday. My work day was looooong! I finally made it home around 7:30 pm.
Today's card was made using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #35 challenge, and it's a Christmas card for the Christmas in July Paper Players #153 challenge. Last year by this time, I had several Christmas cards completed. This year, maybe 5. I really need to get busy don't I? LOL.
I used some really old patterned papers from one of the first TE Key Ingredients. I didn't label the pack at the time so I have no idea what they are. I stamped the snowflakes from the TE Merry Little Cocktail set in Hero Arts Shadow ink and in SU craft white. I embossed the white flakes with SU white EP.
I stamped the sentiment and the cocktail on the same paper. The sentiment is stamped in Riding Hood Red. The cocktail is stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. I added some Xmas red Stickles to the holly berries. The sentiment was cutout with the Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX dies and layered. After gluing the panel to the card front, I added some rhinestones to the red snowflakes. Very CAS really, and I like the way it turned out.
Here is the inside: also very CAS
