Joyful Christmas


Hi everyone.  CAS Christmas card using a new stamp set I just got.  Love this wreath.  Stamped it in black and then used distress inks to add colour with a waterbrush (no watercolour paper this time).  Fussy-cut the wreath, coated with clear wink of stella, and added glossy accents to the berries.  Stamped a simple sentiment to finish.

Quick and easy.

Such a pretty wreath (I need to try the DIs on cardstock...maybe I'll like that attempt better). A clean, simple card, with so much impact. I'm marveling over your fussy cutting....

This is a striking card Loll! I love that wreath and love how you colored it. It looks amazing against the white background and just stands out so pretty!! Of course I love all CAS cards and have been trying my hand at making some as well. I owe it all to you and the other ladies out there that do CAS so well. Maybe one day I will get as good as you guys! lol Hugs, Brenda
