Christmas Card Challenges #2 -- CAS Design

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Hi friends. I'm a couple of days late posting my card for this week's challenge at Christmas Card Challenges. This week, the optional challenge in addition to making a holiday or Christmas card is to make a CAS card.  Piece of cake, right?

I started with this gorgeous die by Memory Box. I cut it once from black card stock and once from some gold foil card stock. What do you think? Do you like one better than the other? I honestly have been looking at both cards to see which way I like it better and cannot decide. At any rate, they were quick and easy and very mailable Christmas cards for my stash.





Here's the list of the other designer's blogs who are participating this week.

LET'S GO SHOPPING

Wow! What beautiful cards. Such a lovely die. I can see why you are having a difficult time deciding on which card you like more. I'm in the same boat. Although I might be tending toward the one with the gold on top, simply because it's more sparkly. :) Beautiful design for sure!

Ooooh both of them are so pretty and elegant! I think I like the one with the black outline and the gold in the middle :)

Can I say that it is a tie, and I love them both equally?

Gorgeous cards. Seems several of us were thinking 'ornaments' this week. I'm not sure which one I like more...black or gold. Looks like you got 2 cards for the price of one, which is always good. Love that die; I really have to stop looking at your cards...you cause me to spend too much money :-)

Love the simplicity of this design Alanna and I wouldn't be able to choose a favourite. They are both so elegant and it's always a bonus when they are easy to post!
