Happy jingly greetings, crafty friends! I’m back with yet another countdown post for the new CAS-ual Fridays holiday release. And of course you’ll have another chance to enter my giveaway!
Since today’s stamp and die set is called “Sleighride”, I of course wanted to use the wonderful sleigh stamp, but after two hours of trying to make a shaker card, I gave up. Check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog to find the link to Laurel Beard’s blog. She has a gorgeous card, just what I wanted to create! Instead, I went the opposite way and did a super clean and simple design.
I decided to give the beautiful sentiments all of my attention and stamped them with Versafine ink, and only add some color by ways of the fun bell stamp – which was super easy to add to the card thanks to the matching dies. You could add foam tape behind the die-cut, but I decided to stick with some Tombo Mono and really have it float above the sentiment.
Thanks to some Stardust gel pen and Glossy Accents, the bells have a wonderful shimmer, but I couldn’t help myself and had to add just a few tiny gold stars from Pretty Pink Posh as an additional accent to the card.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
I’ll be giving “Bring on the Snowflakes”, “Snowy Sayings”, and “Funky Flakes Fri-Dies” (the products I introduced on day one of this series) to one lucky winner. All you need to do is leave me a comment on each of the release blog posts this weeks (I’ll have one each day) and I’ll be announcing the winner Saturday morning here on my blog when the release goes live and you can start your shopping.
