CAS Christmas - March

CAS Mix Up's little sister blog CAS Christmas is also celebrating a birthday this month - and there are some great prizes on both blogs so come along and help us celebrate!

The Christmas challenge theme is Kraft, Red and White and it gave me an opportunity to use a die set bought last year and simply put away in the Xmas Die Folder!
Added a bit of interest to the plain white background with a 'snow' embossing folder and a few red mirri card punched out stars.

I don't use Kraft card nearly enough so made a couple of other cards whilst the challenge is running which I will share at some point. It also means I have more Christmas cards ready too which can only be a good thing!

I have looked at all the wonderful cards using kraft and wondered why I don't use it more often but somehow I feel intimidated by it! Your card is gorgeous, such a good idea to cut the trees from craft with a matching mat. the bakers twine is a brilliant finishing touch xx

What a pretty snowy night scene, Viv! I love the AR's fir tree die-cuts! The falling snow embossing is just right amount to add texture and interest to the background. The red & white bakers twine is a perfect festive finishing touch! So happy to see your card at the CAS Christmas Challenge gallery! Thank you!

Kraft is a wonderful material, here it blends in perfectly in your rather modern and festive design. Love the style!
