It’s that time again…time for another challenge from the folks at the SUO challenge site!  This time it is an easy theme – Favorite Holiday Mini item.  Well that is always a REALLY DIFFICULT one to narrow it down to only 1!  Well…I couldn’t really do that so I used a couple favorite things!

So this card has my favorite new embossing folder and my very favorite set of framelits.  You put those together and you get this cool CAS card!

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder then layer onto Real Red 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
  • Stamp greeting using Basic Grey
  • Silver Foil – cut out snowflake
  • Fold piece of 1/8″ Solid Real Red ribbon then add to card front
  • Real Red – Cut out stitched heart and add to card front.

Yep…that’s all there is to it…nice and CAS!

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!

One Layer Card

Welcome everyone!  It’s time again for another Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop!  These are always such fun!  This week it is right up my alley…1 layer card (so VERY CAS!)  Usually I like adding a panel on the base…I just like the way that looks but since this is one layer (with embellishments of course) that is what I did!

This would definitely be one of the those kind of cards where you could do a bunch of these up.  The snowflakes are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets and the MERRY & BRIGHT is from the Hearts come Home set.  The ONLY corner punch though we have anymore is the envelope makers…GEEZ!  On a super simple card like this, rounding the bottom corners really steps it up a bit.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, stamp greeting using Versamark and Copper Emboss, round bottom corners using envelope punch board
  • Champaign Foil – cut out largest snowflake, add to card front
  • Gold Foil – cut out medium snowflake, add to card front
  • Copper Foil – cut out smallest snowflake, add to card front

Okay…hope you didn’t blink…that really is all there is to this one!  Now you have time to subscribe to Create with Connie and Mary September Mini Edition!
