Post 172: CAS Christmas Card

Hi friends :)

Hope you had a good weekend and have a great week ahead.
It is very hot in Delhi. Despite that, I think I prefer summers to winters.

Onto crafting, I'd like to share a Clean and Simple Christmas Card today.
This is a 5 by 7 inches side folding card.
I did masking, ink blending, embossing through a stencil, splattering and stamping on this project.
I had this christmas tree stencil for more than a month now and really wanted to try it, I'm glad I got a chance to work with it. It's a beautiful design.
I think the little splatter dots look like snow in the night sky :) The splatter was created using watered down perfect pearls
I stamped on the glittery washi tape with black staz on ink and it worked pretty well.
I've added 3 silver sequins to the right of the sentiment to finish off the project.

List of Supplies:

Paper Sweeties Stamp- Homespun Holidays
Artplorations Stencil- Christmas Trees
DCAM Stitched Ovals Nesting Dies
Iris White Cardstock 250 gsm
