CAS Christmas - FWF 11-20




Hi, Friends......


I am here with another card 
made with inspiration from one of Jennifer Grace's Frosty Festivities 2015 projects here, where she inspired us to use one or both halves of a large stamp separately.



I also am entering this card in the Unity Designer Hop and Friends with Flair Link-Up for this week.  There's a big hop and sale over there, so be sure to join us!!!  

If you hang out around my blog much, you know that CAS (Clean and Simple) is not my usual genre.  Also, it is almost unheard of for me to make a truly one-layer card.  (Too scary!!  What if I mess up???!!!????  I might have to toss out a ten cent sheet of cardstock!!!  Yikes!!)  This time, though, the simple one-layer style seemed to fit.  (Sorry for the shadowy photography...)


I used my Stampendous Jumbo Poinsettia cling stamp....which apparently is discontinued.....and stamped it off the edge of my white cardstock base with Versamark ink.  I used the same ink with a lovely Unity grab bag stamp for the Christmas sentiment.  Then I heat embossed with gold powder.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  I was so delighted with this elegant look that I made four of them.....and I only messed up two of them!!!  Ha.  :)

Hope you like this card, too, and that it inspires you to try out CAS....even if it isn't your usual style.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Wow, Janis, this is beautiful. Not only is it one layer, but it's only one color, too. Elegant! (Had to laugh at your comment about messing up on two). :-)

I'm with you on one-layer cards making me nervous! The scariest part is stamping the sentiment because a goof up is so obvious. You, however, did this perfectly and I love that you stamped the poinsettia image off the card! The asymmetrical design is so elegant and that gold embossing makes it festive too!
