Let me just start by saying that today's card is a lot more gorgeous in person, lol! I had a terrible time trying to get good photos with all the white and the shine of the silver embossing, sigh. Oh well, guess you will just have to take my word for it -heehee and hopefully you will be able to see it's potential anyway.
I am trying to get better at doing truly CAS cards and I think I finally got it right this time! I was inspired by the sketch @ CAS(e) this Sketch and the theme @ AAA Cards, so I will be submitting there plus @ Double D Challenges for their Red and White challenge, and @ Repeat Impressions for "Glitter".
This card was made on a white A2 card base with the addition of some red patterned paper, silver glitter paper diecut using a die from Spellbinders, skinny washi tape in 2 patterns and stamps from several sets and companies.
The inside was treated just as specially as the front 'cuz this card will be for my hubby for Christmas and he deserves only the best! I used water based markers directly on the mistletoe stamp and then blended it a bit with the clear Wink of Stella pen, so it glitters when you see it in person!
The silver heat embossed sentiment on the front helps to ground the design and complete the sketch.
Hope you are enjoying all the prep that comes along with the December holidays -as for me, it's time to finally decorate my Christmas tree! Until next time~
