CAS Christmas

I know christmas isn't usually clean and simple but my card certainly is. I used a card blank, a LOTV die cut image, a piece of white card and a sentiment I'd saved from some decoupage. All I did was cut a circle from the card which I then embossed with a Die'sire 'Holiday Holly' embossing folder and stuck it all together - using sticky pads to get an upraised finish to the embossed card. So simple but it looks effective and great when you have to make a lot of cards in a short time.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Ready Teddy Go challenge 'Use embossing'
Christmas Cards All Year Round 'Winter snow / snowflakes'
Cards Galore challenge 'Animals'
The Squirrel and the Fox challenge 'Animal antics'
Polkadoodles challenge 'Christmas anything goes'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'Anything goes with snow'
Allsorts challenge 'Christmas cheer'
Moving Along With the Times challenge 'No papers'
CAS on Sunday challenge 'It's a sketch'

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you've all had a great weekend.
