CAS Christmas - June


I am honored to be the guest designer for the CAS Christmas challenge for June.   I won in April with this card and was invited to be part of this month's challenge.  It's a masculine theme and I had an idea right away for my cards. 
I've used this PTI set before but never the die with the holes.  I used buttonhole thread to string them just like real snowshoes.  I wanted to add a little color so I heat embossed the PB sentiment on navy cs and added a strip of navy down both sides.

The Design Team has some wonderful masculine Christmas cards for your inspiration over on the blog.  We hope you'll join us for this challenge.  Just remember to make it CAS.

I'll see you back on the 17th with another card.

  6. Such a cool masculine CAS card, Bobby! You did a fantastic job with threading on the snowshoes - it makes them look real and adds dimensional interest. Adding a strip of navy to both sides of the white card base is effective, too.

  15. Wow! Love those snowshoes, and your card is a perfect example of how CAS applies to the design of the overall card, not necessarily to how quickly it can be crafted. Brilliant!
