CAS on a Cold & Frosty Morning

Good morning to all you lovely people on this cold and frosty day and thanks for taking the time to drop by. I decided to have a look through some of my crafty bits and bobs and was quite ashamed when I found things I'd never used or hadn't used for absolutely ages, so they are now at the top of the pile of to do - that is of course unless I get side tracked or end up buying even more new goodies.

So the first of these is a brass embossing stencil from Dreamweaver which I dry embossed. I used glittery gel pens to colour the upraised lines and stickles for the snow. I went for a CAS design so just layered the image on some holographic card before mounting onto the hammered card base. It was a lot harder to photograph then it was to make and does look much better in 'real life'.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Allsorts challenge 'CAS'
The ABC challenge 'E for Embossing'
Without Words challenge 'Baby, It's Cold Outside'
Elke Kaart Een Feestje challenge 'Do Not use a cute stamp on your card or layout'
Cupcake Craft challenges 'January Blues'
Divas By Design challenge 'Anything Goes'
Penny's Paper-Crafty challenge 'Anything Goes'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Beat the Blues'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'Snow and Ice'
Lexi's Creations challenge 'Anything Goes'

Well the sun has poked his head out so fingers crossed it warms up a little. Hope you have a good day whatever you may be doing.
