Enjoying the Holiday CAS Christmas Cards

Hope you’re enjoying the Labor Day Holiday!  It seems to be a traditional day for barbecues, LOL… We’re grinding our own meat these days so the burgers will be fresh!  Ordinarily we don’t eat much bread, but today we’re splurging and having our burgers on toasted Onion Schnecken rolls.  Have you ever heard of Schnecken?  They’re very light and fluffy, not dense like traditional burger rolls.  We buy ours at the local Publix supermarket, but not every one carries them!!Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Papers MiniLOL, this CAS (clean and simple) Christmas card is one I designed for my Senior Stampers… and then decided it was way too simple!!  I hadn’t stamped in a couple days so had lost my mojo and had to work through a few cards before it came back!crochet trim nice accent for cas christmas cardI thought the pretty Victoria 5/8” crochet lace trim or ‘ribbon’ was a nice compliment to the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper pattern!  Are you familiar with Specialty DSP packs?  They usually have one or more papers with an unusual element of design… glitter, flocking, texture, etc.  In this case, the DSP contains two real red flocked window sheets in a pattern similar to the one shown on this DSP. P1150192Cherry Cobbler, and Early Espresso inks were used to make the scallop punched medallion.  The images are from the current mini catalog hostess set “Mixed Medley” which may be viewed on page 39, just inside the back cover. Stampin’ Dimenisonals were used beneath the seniment and largest medallion.  It’s important to attach the dimenisonals were they will make contact with the paper (not the ribbon) if you want it to stick well!snow festival dsp sharon_field_card_4_seniorsLOL… this is the card we made at Seniors last Friday!  The brushed gold snowflake was die-cut using the big shot die-cutting machine and snow flurry Bigz Die and attached to the card front with a single dimensional aka pop dot.  Although it’s still a CAS Christmas card, it wasn’t quite as simple as the one I originally designed.

The Snow Festival Designer Series Paper is complimented by Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla and Gumball Green card stock… a variation of the card I shared in yesterday’s SUO Charlie Brown Christmas Tree blog post!  Mixed Medley stamp set (3/4” punched circle sentiment") and Scentsational Season are the stamp sets we used to make this card.

I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday with family and friends… stay safe, and I look forward to reading your comments!  LOL.. I’ve got to get ready for Wednesday’s club meeting!!  Hmm… wonder what we should have for lunch.  I’m leaning towards quiche and salad Smile

Thanks for your online orders, and I hope you’ll stop back by tomorrow!

Hugs,

Sharon
