I am a huge fan of adding many layers and multiple dimensions to my cards. They are not always practical to mail though, with many coming in at the package rate to mail. The closer we get to the holidays, the more CAS creations you will see. I am playing along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-
My card is super simple, I subbed in a snowflake for the circle element and added a strip for my sentiment. My snowflake and sentiment were stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed in White. In CAS cards, it is all about the details. The snowflake is stamped onto a stitched rectangle panel, which is mounted with 3-D foam tape. I can’t help myself, I have to have some dimension!
My card was created with the November Stamp of the Month, Christmas Snowflake Mandalas. This gorgeous set of 9 nine stamps is only available to purchase in November. You can add this set to a qualifying order for only $5 or earn the set for FREE as a VIP member. Want just the stamp set? You can order it as a stand alone item as well!
