Glimmer Ornament And Senior CAS Card

The Seniors at Jim Fortuna Senior Center meet twice monthly to make clean and simple (CAS) Cards.  It’s always a challenge to come up with something for all… and last month we made two quick Christmas  Cards!  The Two Tags Girl with Snow Flurry Die Cut snowflake card was shared with you in Thursday’s Post (CAS Snowgirl Here).  Today I’m sharing the second Christmas card we made.1_seniors113012_ornamentcardwithsharon This card features the Ornament and open scallop border punches along with the Holiday Frames embossing folder and silver glimmer paper with rhinestones for a little bit ‘o bling!2.ornamentcardwithsharonatseniors1130 A knot of old olive 1/8” taffeta ribbon was attached at the neck of the ornament with a mini glue dot, giving it a more realistic and 3-d effect.3_holidayframesembossingfolderdirectionals Did you know that the Holiday Frames embossing folder is directional?  LOL on the very first card I made using this embossing folder, I attached the card stock upside down!  Take a look at the embossing just above my name and watermark… there’s a Christmas Tree at the bottom edge of the embossing.  That’s just one of several clues in the embossing folder which also contains images of stars, ornaments, and ribbon.4_buildingtheornamentwithsilverglimmerpaper Avoid glimmer paper or card stock waste when making the ornament card by cutting a 1-1/4” strip of glimmer paper slightly wider than the glimmer base.  Punching along the straight edge creates the lower portion and no further cutting is needed.

Also used on today’s CAS card share:  Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White and Riding Hood Red Card Stock along with “merry christmas” from the petite pairs stamp set and old olive ink.

Hope you enjoyed today’s CAS card share… tomorrow I’ll share two more CAS Cards for Seniors from the first of two December card making sessions!

I look forward to reading your comments and appreciate your online orders and support!
