Friends Are The True Gift of the Season--PP271

November 15, 2015

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  The lovely, Jaydee is our hostess this week.  She wants us to create a CAS (Clean and Simple) Christmas Card.  We can't wait to see what you create. 

I had so much fun making this card!  I love these bows!  I don't like them on packages though.  It is a joke in my family!  NO stick on bows from me!  ENJOY! 

My card base is Whisper White  (5 1/2 X 4 1/4)  The next layer is Real Red.  (5 1/4 X 4)  The top layer is Whisper White and trimmed with the SugarPea Designs-Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I stamped the bows from The Ton-Holdiay Bows.  I used a variety of inks.  (listed below)  The sentiment is stamped with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I added Wink of Stella to the bows for shine. It was so difficult for me to not add sequins, but since it is CAS, I resisted.  LOL!  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!
