CASEd Christmas Card


For my aunt to send as her cards, I CASEd this card from the Stampin' Up! 2010-11 Idea book.  I used Home for Christmas set last year for my cards and this year I'm rotating the sets around so everyone gets a fresh look on their cards.  I'll also make cards for my Mother and for me to send.

I did change the colors some since I had quite a bit of this Scarlett Jewel paper and had more green ribbons to work with.  Project notes:
  • The catalog card had little jewels for dotting the 'i' in Christmas and on the wreath.  To keep the bulk down for mailing, I used a silver pen from Creative Memories. 
  • The wreath is colored in with a combo of markers and watercolor crayons.  Since marker colors run with water, I used the marker first and then went over everything with a crayon and blender pen for a 'blended' effect.

Thanks for visiting!
