"The cat accepts your hospitality, but not your obligations."
I am zooming through my all-night marathon of posts with this number 3 of 5!!!!
I am posting these for the Linky party at Jennifer Grace's 2014 Frosty Festivities. It closes in a few short hours, so I am glad these posts are going quickly. Who knows...I might even get some sleep before Little Peach wakes up! (Not likely, since I drank a cup of coffee at 9 pm!!!!)
This card was inspired by Jennifer's Rainbow Coloured Christmas Card post. I don't think I've ever done a Christmas card in rainbow colors before so this was really fun. And, look....It's CAS!!!! I rarely ever do what I would truly call a CAS card, although I do a lot of simple geometrics. But this one pretty much is.
Instead of using individual colors of embossing powder, I cheated with the houses by using a big long rainbow ColorBox ink pad that Clearsnap sent me as part of a WCMD prize (THANKS, Clearsnap!!!). I stamped and then heat-embossed with clear powder.
I held my breath while I stamped the greeting on with Black Soot Distress Ink... (Whew....it's straight!)....then mounted it on some glittery DCWV cardstock. Some iridescent sequins for smoke finished it all off.
I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out!!! It was fairly easy to do, too, so I might even make some more of these and send them to the Caring Hearts Card Drive.
Okay, that's it for this post. Onward and upward to posts #4 and #5 which are a couple more card sets.
