CAS Christmas Card

Good afternoon and welcome to a beautiful Spring - like day in Melbourne, Australia. And yes, Winter seems to have vanished - and you'll hear no complaints from me :-)
Today I was looking forward to using my new Bright and Beautiful stars set and saw the CAS challenge this week at SUO Challenges and decided to join in. I do love CAS cards - even though the odd layer and some bling are usually present on all my cards, the CAS style is my favourite to make. So here is the first Christmas card of 2014:

So I kept a pretty simple colour theme - Pool Party, Silver and white :-)

The card base is some Pool Party Card topped with some White card that has been stamped lightly with the dots stamp from gorgeous Grunge using the Silver Encore ink (from SU), Next I heat embossed the stars in Pool Party EP on some Whisper White card and cut them out with the co-ordinating framelits and added in a piece of the beautiful Silver Glimmer paper too :-)
And for the sentiment I cut  the Noel from the Wonderful Wreath framelits and added that using a Glue pen. And last - but never least! - are some silver sequins from the Frosted Sequins assortment also available in the Holiday Catalog.

Card stock: Pool Party, Whisper white, Silver Glimmer
Ink: Versamark, Silver Encore
Stamps: Bright & Beautiful, Gorgeous Grunge
Accessories: Big Shot, Stars Framelits, Pool Party EP, Heat Tool, Wonderful Wreath Framelits,  Frosted Sequin

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I do hope you have time to check out all the cards by the team at SUO challenges this week!

Happy stamping until next time,
