CAS(E) this Sketch! #49 & Simon Says Stamp

When I saw the CAS(E) this Sketch! #49 challenge, I thought I would finally do something with my speech bubble dies.

I really did pull them out, but was distracted by thoughts of Christmas and ended up creating this card.

I die cut the trio of trees and then stamped & heat embossed them to look like they were dusted with snow. The middle tree is die cut & stamped again to add dimension. 

Enamel dots and crystals fit the two larger sized holes/balls in the stamped image perfectly and a dot of stickles worked to fill the smallest. 

Since I used clear stamps for the image & sentiments, I am also linking this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. 

I usually make only a handful of different Christmas cards every year and mass produce one for our nontraditional family update (it was fun summarizing the year in a Haiku for each of us), but this year I am tempted to make more unique cards. Do you still send out holiday cards?

Thanks for stopping by,

  7. Beautiful trio of trees. I love making holiday cards, but usually donate most of them. I buy photo cards and send them out, usually around New Year's.
