CAS Christmas Card Challenge: Peace

This months CAS Christmas Card Challenge theme is Peace,
which we are all wishing for... Hosted by Colleen (One Smile lifts A Spirit)

My Card

Keeping with the tree theme I used Gemund Woodland 110# Cardstock 
for my cardbase.  Next dry embossed my card front with SU Woodgrain EB Folder.
using SU Wild Wasabi CS.

I actually used the debossed side so my trees and sentiment would lay flatter.
I attached the woodgrain CS to the cardbase with fun foam.

Then  die cut the CUTplorations PeaceLoveJoy Phrase sentiment out of Strathmore 
Mixed Media paper and attached with SU Fine Tip Glue Pen.

The trees were die cut from SU Whisper White Thick CS with Impression Obsession 
Die084-V Fir Trees and then I used the Encrusted Jewels Technique
to cover them with Wild Wasabi and White SU EB powder and glitter.

You can find all the Deets for the Encrusted Jewels technique Here on my June post.
I attached the trees with SU Mini Dimensionals and Done!

Quick CAS Christmas Card, since I had my Die Cuts in my stash:-)

You still have until the 24th to play along in this fun challenge.
I am so happy to have another card for my Christmas 2019 stash. Hugs...

  1. Beautiful encrusted trees and colours, Nancy and the woodgrain looks really good. Love that green!

  2. Beautiful card Nancy. I love the dry embossing on the card base and your front panel. And the green is so soothing and beautiful. Great idea to use the debossed side so it lays flatter. Looks great with your encrused trees. xx

  3. I love all the woodgrain background and that fantastic die cut sentiment, Nancy! Your little encrusted trees are like a piece of jewelry on the card! Love that you used the Wasabi color on this!

  4. your woodgrain card is so pretty and love that die cut sentiment Nancy :)

  5. Great card, Nancy! Love the little encrusted jewels trees! I recently bought that sentiment die but haven't used it yet - it's great to see how lovely it looks.

  6. Gorgeous, Nancy!! Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas, always love seeing your creations!

  7. Great design Nancy! I love the green and the pretty diecuts.

  8. Gorgeous shades of color on this one, Nancy and I just love that die cut! Wonderful CAS card and looks like it was so fun to do too.

  9. Oh those encrusted jewel trees are gorgeous, Nancy. Love the texture of the woodgrain cardstock. It all ties in together beautifully. xx

  10. Those trees look fabulous and I do love the green on the dry embossed background and what a fabulous change from the norm. Bold and wonderful die cut sentiment too. Great texture and great card Nancy x.

  11. Oh that woodgrain is just perfect with the trees... Love it!

  12. I’m not sure why, but I sometimes miss your posts even though I subscribe, so sorry I’m late to see this. It sure is pretty with the two textures of wood grain. I like the green. The debossed side looks as good as the embossed side. Good idea! Also love the sentiment die.

  13. Beautiful tree theme card, Nancy! Love the refreshing green & white color combo and your gorgeous Encrusted Jewel trees! It's a clever idea to use the debossed side of the green panel so that your trees and sentiment would lay flatter. Great choice for the sentiment die. The font style matches the woodgrain pattern of the green panel. Good eyes! Hugs.. Hideko
