CAS One Layer Card - CCC Challenge

Good morning. Today's card is for the Christmas Card Club challenge. It was Zoe's choice this time and she chose Clean and Simple One Layer card.

My Card


I don't think I could have made it any more CAS. I stamped my image - with fear and trepidation!!!- directly onto a 6x6 scalloped card. I used Pearlescent Lavender ink and then heat embossed with crystal embossing powder. Unfortunately the picture isn't showing that. I then used a glue pen on the leaves and sprinkled with ultra fine crystal glitter. The ribbon from my stash was bought at the local haberdashery store and the purple shimmer dots are Papermania. The stamp is Three Trees by Denami  Stamps, which I have had for many years.

Although it is very different to my usual style of Christmas card I'm not unhappy with it - although I don't think I will be doing too many of them.

There is a list of my teamies on my right sidebar so you can check out what the others have done with the challenge. It will be interesting.

Enjoy the rest of your long weekend. Since I retired I forget about Bank Holidays - all weekends are long to me! Lol! For you ladies who are still working I'm sure you will be looking forward to it. The weather is great today so definitely a day for cycling. 

Love and hugs from Christine xx

  3. Now I like this Christine. I do think you are brave stamping straight onto the card. I still get nervous too! It is a lovely card though, I don't know why you wouldn't want to do it again.
    Best wishes

  14. Hi Christine, Funnily enough I tried CAS cards yesterday but did not feel too confident. I like a bit of build up on my cards but will post them later. Our weather is showery and cold, keep wondering if we will ever see a rise in the temperature up here.

    A day for crafting indoors.

  23. This is so lovely...I enlarged the card to see the glimmery bits and it looks so beautiful. I will have to remember that way to clear emboss and them use the glue pen inside the embossed area to add the glitter there...cuz it looks so nice.

  26. Hi Christine,
    your card is very elegant, as usual. I think this is a lovely example of a great card to make when you have lots of Christmas ones to make.
    Not been around much the last few days, I have been using the good weather to do some gardening, and this makes me so tired when I have finished it.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
