CAS Bauble

Good Morning everyone.

Today I have 2 cards to show you. Both of them are CAS, one in blue & silver and the other one is all white.

Blue & Silver
This first card is being entered it into 2 challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown  - (04-16) January Stash Challenge which this week is Foiling / gilding flakes

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge - #266 Anything Goes as long as it's Christmas

Well, I thought I would get my Craft Dragon out to do a bit of foiling just to see if it made the journey to Portugal ok.
(OH, isn't it great news that the company that took on the Craft Dragon assets are going to start trading these items again soon?!)

Well, it does still work ..... but I obviously need a bit of practice on the foiling front. Just couldn't manage to get a complete image for some reason. Maybe I need to turn it up hotter - or examine the dies for any damage. Ah well!

So I used plain old silver gilding flakes, 2 stamps and a bit of fiddly cutting of some double sided tape to make the bow on this card

Must say that I'm really loving the simplicity of this card.

Items used:
Silver Gilding flakes
Flitter Glue
Double sided tape
IndigoBlu Baroque Bauble (luuuurrrvvvee this stamp!)
Sentiment - from Papermania Classic Christmas by Stephanie Dyment

White on White

Now for my second card for today... just about get this one in before the challenge closes.
