Guest Designer - CAS Christmas Challenge


I was thrilled to be chosen as a guest designer for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge a little while ago. I'm sure any regular visitors to my blog will be aware that I love making Christmas cards...and try to make as many of them as CAS as possible in an attempt to save on postage costs so I was delighted to be able to join then for this month's challenge.


The theme for this month is 'Stocking'...I have quite a few images that feature stockings, but the first one that popped into my head was this cute one by Penny Black called 'Joy Filled Stockings'. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut it out. I stamped a sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous) on my card blank, before adding the image popped up on some 3D foam pads.


For more inspiration from the awesome design team, please pop over to the CAS Christmas Card Challenge.
