CAS Sketch

Wow!  Who’d have thought it would take so long to get back into things after a holiday!! It is true what they say….you do need a holiday to recover from a holiday!!
Anyways….I was scooting around a few challenges last night looking for inspiration and decided to give the Clean and Simple Stamping sketch a go and because they are sponsored by Jingle Belles this week….another excuse to use my Stampin’ Up! Christmas stash!

I’ve used Lovely as a Tree and Welcome Christmas to make the image by heat embossing it using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  I’ve used dazzling diamond to add a bit of snow to the image.
The greeting is from Contempo Christmas and I’ve heat embossed it in the same way.

I’ve matted and layered the image with  Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive textured card and 3d’d this onto Jolly Holiday DSP.

I’ve matted the greeting on to Cherry Cobbler and made it into a tag which I’ve tied to the side of the card.
So now I’ve started, I’m gonna find it hard not to keep making Christmas cards!! I love it! Smile.
I’m also entering this in the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays {Embossing}
Craft Us Crazy {Anything Goes}

Hope you like it.
