CAS Chistmas Card Set


Hi everyone.  Today I have a pretty card set I made using one of my new favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon


Okay, so I think it’s a well know fact that I have much difficulty with the Clean and Simple style of card.  BUT, I continue to try.  You would think that CAS would be the easiest type of card to make, but apparently I just don’t know when to stop.  I admire all of you who can pull off this style.  It takes me hours to come up with a card and I break out in a cold sweat while doing so!


I know some of my ‘teamie’s’ laugh when I say something is CAS, but this is as CAS as it gets for me!!  You will not likely see a single layer card from me EVER!  I just can’t do it!!  There are so many crafty goodies calling out to me ‘Use me, use me!!”

I actually don’t hate this set I came up with, but I have to admit that I’m itching to add a few dozen doo-dads to them along with about 6 or 7 additional layers.  I think it’s a disease.  hehehe


Here are some close-ups.


This card uses Sheer with Shimmery Edge Blue Ribbon


Did you know that Really Reasonable Ribbon offers gift subscriptions for 3, 6, or 12 months for our Monthly Ribbon Club?  This is the perfect gift for a crafty friend because you can never have enough ribbon!!  Your friend will get a fun little present each month for the term you select.  AND, one of the cards above will go out with the first shipment with a personalized message from you.  How cool is that??  Of course, if it’s for someone who has a birthday or other event to celebrate during the holidays, we will change the sentiment on the front of the card.  You can order at any time and specify the starting month and when you want the first shipment to be sent out.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Thinking of You

Hi everyone.  I didn’t have much time for crafting this weekend, but I did want to share a quick card I put together so I could play along with the JustRite Friday Challenge #86 with a Proud as a Peacock Theme.  I just love the colors for this challenge!

I used a couple of sentiments from their very versitile Grand Sentiments Clear stamp set. 

I also used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #62.

My design papers are from DCWV and Recollections and my Purple Shimmer Satin and Plum Baker’s Twine are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
