CAS Christmas

There's still time to join in the fun over at the CAS Christmas Challenge where the theme this time is Deer!

Here I limited the colour palette to just two colours... white and navy. I used a circular die from Simon Says Stamp and added a backdrop piece of card coloured with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink applied via Sheena Douglass's Snow Embossing Folder. I inked the inside, flat side of the folder and ran the card through my Big Shot.
The sentiment from Cutplorations and the stag from Sizzix (which I have since misplaced Grrrrrr!) were simply layered and added to the front of the card.

It's such a good idea to prepare Christmas cards at leisure throughout the year, as for many years I've had a mad scramble to get enough cards made at the last minute.
Hopefully it will work well again this year!

Many thanks once more to the team at CAS Christmas for this wonderful invitation to join them!
