Happy Holidays


I made this CAS card today for three different challenges.     First I saw the challenge at the
"52 CARD CHRISTMAS THROWDOWN"     This week the challenge is a technique challenge...
Embossing - Dry or Wet.    I went with the dry embossing and embossed the pal blue piece of
card stock with a snowflake embossing folder.   I had a card card base that had this blue border around it already so just cut down the blue card stock to fit.     I decided to keep it CAS and
just use silver glitter words only on the card.   It let the embossing showoff well and I thought the
silver and blue went together.

Next I am using this card for the challenge at  "ALWAYS PLAYING WITH PAPER"  when I
saw this challenge that is why I went with the blue card stock to emboss because the challenge here
is a Christmas photo inspiration challenge.   The blue ribbon on one of the presents just jumped out
at me above all the red and white in the pictures.   So that is what inspired me.

Last but far from least is the latest two week challenge at the "WINTER WONDERLAND BLOG"
The them this week is Frosty or All Wrapped up.   More details below.   But this card was perfect for the frosty choice with the embossed snowflakes and the blue and silver.    Fun fun fun, making this.


Here are the challenges.....   Just click on each challenge name for more details.
