I'm dropping by for a couple quick CAS Christmas cards. Merry Monday has provided an interesting sketch this week, with banner ends going up. Oh, how tempted I was to flip the sketch! But this is a challenge, no?
The first card follows the sketch to a T. The horizontal stripe is an embossed row of snowflakes, and the three banners are strips from Festival Of Prints & First Edition. I rolled the edges to reveal a little of the print on the reverse. A few punches and linen thread wrap to pull them all together.
My second card was just a result of leftover parts. The white CS that I decided to switch out, and lace tape & twine that was also sitting in my castoff bowl. I love scraps! They make my crafting spontaneous & I like this card just as much :)
Hope you have a nice week, that brings you a little sunshine & some spring flowers!
