Inspired Stamps - CAS Christmas Card

Hello Friends!  Welcome to another Inspired Stamps post, this week it's DT choice, and it looks like I'm really into Christmas cardmaking.  It's a CAS card this week and I used the sentiment from Vintage Christmas set, which is one of my favourites.

I die cut the tree on the cardbase, and adhered a green patterned paper behind so the pattern shows through.  Then I used a rectangle die and embossed the cardbase to create a frame around the tree.  I added a little bell on the top of the tree with a ribbon bow, and finish off the card by stamping the sentiment at the bottom left corner.

 This is the inside of the card.  I stamped a Scripture sentiment from John 3:16 on another piece of cardstock and scored the edges to mimic the front of the card, and the sentiment is a perfect match as well.

I think this card can be mass produced and the positive diecut of the tree can be saved for use on another card idea.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing you a fabulous day!

This is a beauty of a CAS card, Kary! The negative die cut is terrific with the patterned paper peeking through.
