CAS Christmas - January 2022

Silver and gold.  Classic Christmas accent colors and the choice of Julia at CAS Christmas.  

I cut an ornament from Elizabeth Crafts from gold and silver and inlaid the gold into the silver outline.  I don't know what I was thinking because this is so fiddly, especially those tiny dots, but I love how it turned out.  For this card I embossed the PTI sentiment in silver and cut the panel with an Altenew die.   

Of course this allows for a second card in reverse.  

Here I edged the panel in the same gold as the PTI sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by.  I hope you are staying well.
