Step it Up, CAS Rejoicing With You

At last week’s CAS card making session with the wonderful ladies at Jim Fortuna Senior Center, we made two very clean and simple (CAS) Christmas cards.  We had a swell time, and welcomed visitor Sue Craver from Hamburg, New York.  It’s always fun to meet people from around the country, and Sue of course was no exception… Thank you Esther for bringing her along!

Once we had completed the session, I also shared some of the cards from recent blog posts, and a stepped up version of the cards we made during the 2-for-5 card making session.  Today I’m quickly sharing both cards and then Hi HO!  I’m off to work!

This is the very clean and simple angel card we made during the senior card making session featuring the Rejoicing With You stamp set from page 21 of the idea book and catalog along with three basic rhinestone jewels.

Simple subtle changes for a WOW factor!  The whisper white background was stamped using just one stamp from the Snow Swirled stamp set (page 18 of the big catalog)…

And for a finishing touch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the beginning swirls of each word in the Peace, Joy, Happiness sentiment.  The jewels are easily removed from the backing paper by placing the tips of your snips beneath the jewel to engage the glue…. then transferred on the snips to your project.

LOL… one tip I frequently share at my senior session was shared again last week… when layers are positioned incorrectly, simply use a piece of waxed dental floss to disengage the glue and pop the askew layer off it’s base and re-position.  This method works best with double sided adhesive such as SNAIL… and can be used with liquid adhesives if you work quickly too!

I hope you like today’s card, it’s one of three we’ll be making at the First Wednesday Card club this week!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a new card for the Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge… and then on Thursday you’ll see the second card from last week’s senior card making session along with another stepped up version of the basic CAS card design!

ALWAYS look forward to reading your comments and appreciate your online orders!

Hugs,

Sharon
