CAS Christmas Cards!

 Thanks to my blogging friend Jo I have just found this new challenge blog CAS Christmas, I always like to make Christmas cards all through the year as it saves a big panic in November (I usually make and send 50 cards)!

This month the theme is Kraft, Red and White, I haven't used any Kraft in my cards for ages so it was great to get it out again and have a play!

I have a collection of  embossing folder strips from Cuttlebug that I hardly ever use and I though this dotty one was perfect for the background.

I then die cut the L'il Gnome from Simon Says in white and red glitter cardstock adding a small white pom pom to his  hat.

Lastly I added the computer generated sentiment adding some red gems. I shall also add this card to the Simon Says Flickr group challenge "Do it with Dies"

I didn't realize how hard it would be to get a good photo, the kraft card photographs very orangy and not the lovely buff brown it should be!

Spring has arrived here in Dorset and lambing season is in full swing, here are a few photos of the lambs in the field outside my craft room, so lucky to have this view when I am creating!

love your card, Sally - the sparkly hat on the gnome is so cute - looks like a winner to me! and agree with you on photographing kraft so it looks like it should.

Adorable card Sally!! I love the added texture from your dotty embossing. The gnome looks all ready for Christmas in his glittery outfit. Sweet card! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! And I agree with you ... you have a lovely view to inspire your creations. Lucky you!

Gorgeous card. Love the gnome. And so glad spring is coming your way. I'm a country girl at heart and loved the farm when lambing was underway. Does mean though Autumn is on it's way here in NZ.

You have to love a gnome for Christmas Sally! So pretty in the red glitter paper against the kraft background, love the embossed snow and white embossed sentiment on the black strip - so glad you found our challenge and happy that you joined us! What a lovely view outside your window! xx

Your gnome is adorable Sally and the strip embossed really draws your eye to the gnome. What a fun card, I myself LOVE gnomes, I probably have close to 20 hanging around the house at Christmas! Thank you for sharing this at CAS Christmas!
