CAS Christmas in July


Hi, Friends......

I am here with yet another Christmas in July card I made with things found in my stash.  Are you like I am and save your negative die-cuts?????  Well, this shimmery blue one had been in my holiday stash box for who knows how long.....and you can't expect me to throw away something like this, can you??  I happened to uncover a pretty embossed white piece, too, and thought they would look nice together.  I LOVE the clean crisp look! 

There are only a few more days left in the Let's Squash It! CAS Challenge, but I wanted to get this card finished and entered.  I have to admit that I really don't "get" CAS.  My usual style is Clean and Layered and a number of people who comment mention my CAS cards, even though I don't think they are CAS.  It is totally mystifying to me.  Anyway, I hope this one really is CAS!  lol...

Supplies used include:
Negative die-cut from Memory Box - Snowflake Love Pendant
Inkylicious - Seasons Greetings x4 stamp set
Versafine Ink in Majestic Blue
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Darice - Dot Background 5"x7" Embossing Folder

Hope you enjoyed this card.  It is nice departure from the cards I have been making that are heavy on the patterned paper. Thank you for stopping by today. Merry Christmas in July to everyone!
