Hello everyone, today I have a CAS card to show you that was really easy to make but looks really effective.....well I think so anyway! This month my fellow cupcakes have a challenge between us with a theme of "no image" so this card is perfect for the job!
For my card I used a Creatables Poinsettia die, for the card above I used the smaller die. I cut and embossed a shape out of red card and before I removed it from the die I sponged it with fired brick distress ink. I then removed it from the die and sponged the edges to add some definition. I repeated this again with red card and once with green card. When all of my shapes were cut I shaped them with a ball tool and I used liquid glue to stick them together. For the centre I used black card and I added a jewel to finish off.
The embossed background was done with my snowflake folder and the sentiment is computer generated. Finally, I stitched around the edge to finish off.
The final picture is of the two cards I made, the top one was made with the small die and the other one was made with the large die.
Card/Paper: Red, green, black and white card
Ink: Distress inks - fired brick and peeled paint
Tools: Cuttlebug, creatables poinsettia die, snowflake folder, sewing machine, ball tool, TH ink applicator tool
