DT: Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge: Christmas

Hi there! Another design team contribution to share with you today. Once again I’m joining the Happy Little Stampers CAS challenge and this month the theme is Christmas!

Now as regular visitors to my blog will know I often make Christmas cards all year round so this one was not exactly a challenge as a theme… but the CAS element still challenges me … especially as of late my cards have been all about excess not clean or simple. So a quick reminder of the rules…

Clean and Simple design with one focal point, lots of white (or open) space and minimal layers and embellishments

OK with these rules in mind… this is what I made…

I went for a smoky slate cardstock and a modern feel. I embossed a foliage stamp in white (stamp from Creative Stamping magazine stamp set) and added some depth of colour with grey watercolour to the leaves then added splatters of both grey and white.

Next I embossed the sentiment using a holographic embossing powder. The sentiment is a Claritystamps one. I then fussy cut that out, added foam behind it and then adhered it to the panel.

I finished with some pearls.

Love the simplicity of this and how pretty and modern it is.

Also entering this into the Addicted to stamps challenge

Happy crafting!

Catherine
