White Christmas...

Hi everyone! This is going to be a super quick post today with a super quick, CAS card today! I was inspired by a card by Amy Sheffer seen here and decided to make a version of this for my class this Friday night.

The top white layer was cut by placing the ornaments die in the Movers and Shapers die before cutting. This is the first time I have used this die combo and it was really cool. It allows you to cut a shape from the front of a card or a layer exactly where you want it to be, and further into the card than punches can reach. After the ornament hole was cut, the top layer was run through my Sizzix machine with the Fleur-de-lis embossing folder- it's amazing how much embossing adds to a card!

The ornament from the Tags Til Christmas punches set was stamped in Cherry Cobbler so that it lines up with the hole (hint: make a pencil outline of the hole on the bottom white layer to guide stamping). The top and bottom white layers were adhered together with dimensional dots, silver brads were added to the corners, then it was layered onto a Cherry Cobbler layer, then the white card front. The card was finished off with a greeting from the Four the Holidays set and a ribbon tied from Cherry Cobbler Seam binding ribbon.

Have a great day and hope to see you tomorrow night at my holiday class!
