CAS Merry Christmas cards

Hi Everyone,

I made these CAS cards awhile ago and kept meaning to post it -but as some of you know, the recent events around the house have been a bit intense and I am still feeling like a snowflake swirling and whirling in a storm - hopefully things get to calm down soon. Even though everyone around here has been sick - I am thankful that at least we are all together - and that there is some light that we are seeing at the end of the tunnel. 

I have been meaning to get all my Christmas cards done - but that has been on the back burner these days - but I wanted to share my template - I love how it turned out - and I love love love this font from the Bright Spirits stamp set - its so elegant and swirly all together :) Here is a little CAS trio that I created that I hope to replicate 500 bajillion times in the next couple of days :) ha! I love how it turned out and loved making it:

Here is another picture of one of the cards. The snowflakes is a Tim Holtz Impressions plate and I popped up the image panel over the sentiment panel - all panels and card base were rounded off and I added some gold accents here and there:

 Card Ingredients:
Paper: PTI cardstock and Bazzill gold cardstock
Inks: Cantaloupe mixed with Rich Cocoa ink
Accessories: Kaiser bling, Snowflake Impressions plate from Tim Holtz, Circle punch, Labels die from Spellbinders, Tree punch from Martha Stewart, dimensionals and gold ribbon from stash.

I have been craving some stamp therapy - and I can't wait to crank out a bajillion of these cards in the next week :) Check out all the yummy Verve stamps and all the dies and newly released dies here!

I hope that everyone in your family stays healthy and happy during this festive season!
Thank you all so much for stopping by!
Big hugs,
