CAS Christmas Jan. 2022 - SILVER & GOLD

Hello friends.  Welcome back to another year at CAS Christmas...the challenge where we try to help you get a head start on those Christmas cards!  Our hostess for this first challenge of the year is Julia, and she would like to see SILVER & GOLD on your CAS Christmas cards.  (Are you hearing Burl Ives in your head right now??  I sure am!!)

 

I have a super CAS card to share with you today, using just two die cut trees and a foiled sentiment, and I LOVE the way it turned out!  Take a look:


 I started by dry embossing a panel with SU!'s Subtle embossing folder, and then added my two die cut trees using Tim Holtz Woodlands dies.  I die cut one is gold mirror cardstock and the other one in silver holographic cardstock.  


My sentiment was foiled with gold using PFS's Perfect Sentiments: Holiday foil plate and die.  I also die cut a couple layers in just plain white cardstock to put behind the foiled sentiment to add a little dimension to the card.  I finished with 3 crystal gems.  

We hope you'll play along with us and get going on those cards for next December!  There's lots of BEAUTIFUL inspiration for you from our talented DT and also our special GD Lisa Elton, so check it all out right HERE, and then play along with us.  This challenge is open till the 24th

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

These shiny trees look amazing, Marcia! Using the silver holographic paper is a fantastic idea to give the card so much interest. Adding the subtle texture to the background is a nice touch too! Super-lovely card, my friend!
