Today, I have a card (actually two cards) for the new to me CAS on Sunday challenge. I have been following their blog for awhile now and I finally decided to play along. This challenge was all about making a Christmas card in the CAS style.
For my cards, I used the Free with $60. die from MFT Stamps Blog. MFT Stamps is always so generous with their free gifts with purchase and this die is definitely a favorite of mine!! Here is what the die looks like:
To begin my cards, I cut a piece of paper to 2in x 4 in in size. I then cut thin strips of paper in a rainbow of colors and attached them to my small rectangle. Here is a photo of the process:
For my card front, I used the MFT Stamps: Wonky Stitched Rectangle die to cut out my panel. Then, I took my Christmas tree and die cut it out of the top center of my panel. Once I had my die cutting complete I used the MFT Stamps: Joyous Christmas stamp set for my sentiments. Next, I attached my rainbow panel behind my card front (die cut Christmas tree). I love the rainbow colors peeking through!!
I made one card with regular cardstock. Then, I went ahead and made a second card with glitter cardstock following the same steps.
Which do you prefer? I am loving the glitter...it was hard to photograph on this rainy day but it really does sparkle!
