Quick CAS Christmas cards
Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing four QACAS (as Darnell would say) cards ... quick and clean and simple. :) Alcohol Ink backgrounds with white die-cuts --- simple.
Again with the alcohol inks backgrounds ... hope you aren't sick of seeing these. :) As I mentioned before, I found smooshing with AIs on yupo paper to work best for me.
For the background above, I used three colours of AI (botanical and mermaid from Ranger; sapphire from Pinata). Love the colours together.
And two more cards made from one panel that I cut in half. Mix of red and green AIs with gold fixative. Where the red and green mixed together, I got dark brown, which I love.
The last card below uses two shades of green, along with gold fixative. I used a 4 1/2" x 6" piece of Yupo, smooshed, and then cut the piece into four equal panels ... making four QACAS cards (all the same). Sentiment is heat embossed in gold. This time I used gold foil paper for the candle die-cut.
