Christmas Card Club # 21 CAS Wreath

Good morning.  I am posting my CCC card a day early since I have another post for tomorrow.  This time Karen asked us to make a CAS card and use a wreath.  Well, my card is definitely CAS.  Unfortunately Karen is not well and unable to participate.

My Card

Linen card stock - Hobbycraft
Catalina wreath die - Memory Box
Pierced Square die - Sue Wilson
Pearls from stash

I  don't think I have ever done anything so CAS but I really like how this has turned out and I think I will be doing this for my batch makes this year. It will be very easy to change the centers into a snowflake or Christmas tree etc just to ring the changes. I computer generated the sentiment before die cutting.  I know this is not actually a Christmas die but I think it works.

My cards are mounting up now which is just as well since I send so many.  I always say I will cut back but I just love making them - and receiving them too!

Hope this finds you well. Take care.

Hi Christine
Beautifully CAS. Oooh, so you've invested in the pierced squares then? I'd not long bought a set of the extra large Presscut Squares so will have to do my own piercing lol!
This will be great for your batch makes.
Best wishes.

Hi Christine,
what a wonderful card.
Love the CAS style, and it's perfectly designed too.
Sorry I am a bit late commenting, but hubby bought me a new computer, and he has been all afternoon installing it, and transferring all my stuff.
Still can't get used to the new keyboard, as I loved my old one.
Didn't want to change, but the old one was 9 years old, and playing up.
Love and big hugs from my house to yours.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
