CAS Christmas Cards

     I love making Christmas cards, all kinds of Christmas cards. Fancy ones, plain ones, CAS ones, non traditional colour ones, full of stuff ones....LOL well you get the picture, I am Christmas crazy and card crazy so they go hand in hand!! LOL  I play along with all the wonderful members over at The Outlawz where they have a different challenge starting everyday and running for a week each. It's a fantastic way to build a hefty stock of all occassion cards. Being that it's December, my focus for the last while has mainly been Christmas cards, unless the challenge asked for a specific holiday or occassion.
     This weeks Sunday CAS challenge asked for glitter....a CAS card with glitter. EASY PEASY pudding and pie.....love it, and of course I was up for the challenge. LOL   I took a shiny blue card I got at the dollar store and cut it in half. I made a slightly larger white card base and ran it through the xyron. I took my provo craft snow flake (the one that comes with the embossing folder) and a sizzix sentiment die, lined them up and ran them through the cuttlebug. Unfortunately the sentiment didn't cut through properly and I had to cut it off. So I took the other half of the card I cut and cut it again, running it through 4X to make sure it cut through this time, LOL!  I cut it down to fit on the bottom half of my white card base that was all sticky. I stuck the two pieces to the white card base, added a rhinestone to the centre of the snowflake, then covered the entire card in white glitter.
      Now I had the positive snowflake and sentiment sitting on my table. I remembered I had a small card base left over from another day, so I ran it through the Xyron, added the snowflake and sentiment,  added a rhinestone to the centre of the flake and covered the entire card in white glitter. Quick, easy and CAS approved!!!  LOL


     Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today to see what I was up to. I hope I have inspired you to make something for yourself or someone you care about. Do you have all your cards made for Christmas yet? I know I don't, I always need another card for somebody at the last minute, so I love to have lots on hand. If you like these cards please leave me a comment so I will know you were here and I can drop by your blog to see what you've been up to lately. I hope you have a wonderful day, and you find some time to get crafty!
