Gifts for CAS Christmas

Hello friends and welcome.

It's time for a new challenge at CAS Christmas.


This month our lovely and talented Linda  has challenged us.

I stamped this Present Border on mixed media paper with a light color ink
then colored with watercolor pencils and blended with my water brush.

There's a little sparkle there from a gold glitter gel pen and some
gold Dazzling Details.

After I got it all colored, I die cut with this fun Memory Box die.

I hope you'll be inspired by our talented Design team and our 
fabulous Guest Designer, Leslie and join us at CAS Christmas.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

What a cute card! Like the contrast of the colorful small presents with the large greeting die cut. And that SU Cucumber Crush cardstock really pops. Plus the touches of glitter. Ahhh, what I want for Christmas is natural card design skills like you have (smiles)!!

This is so unique and I love it. Love that die cut. That border stamp is so perfect for this. I did try borrowing that die once and didn't create anything as fun as this is.

I love that row of Christmas presents, I feel like music is coming out of them and they are just about to start dancing. I might have to pop over to IO and see if they have them :)

Well Duh! Yesterday when I was trying to catch up I scrolled down after looking at each card and then posted on the Iris card at the end instead of this one. When I checking in today on your blog I couldn't figure out where my comment went. I will get it together!

Great row of gifts - love the traditional Christmas colours and the fabulous sentiment die.

Pat said...

That beautiful strong green is a fabulous colour choice for the background card Bonnie and the die cut sentiment border looks perfect with the prettily coloured parcels. A gorgeous card. x

I love how you used this word die. I have it in French and I just can't seem to use it ...now I know what to do. The treatment of gifts just below using the same green, some red and gold. This card is truly in balance and so festive too. xx

I love how you used this die. Gifts look great and perfectly complement the card.
