So for this challenge I did another Christmas card. I have been having so much fun with all the fun Christmas stuff I picked up the other day. I LOVE this stamp by Stampendous! I got the ribbon and the stamp at Michael's and the background paper is embossed with the "textile" embossing folder from Cuttlebug. There is no glitter on this card, just beautiful metallic gold accents. :)

So today's inspiration was to make a CAS (Clean and Simple) card. There was so much great inspiration! I have made one card and am going to attempt to make another. For this card I used a technique my mother-in-law found that sounded like fun. I took foil and folded it to size then ran it through my Cuttlebug. It amazingly holds the embossing because of the strength of the layers of foil. I love how it turned out when I used it with my new Sizzix - Tim Holtz - Snow Flurries folder! The stamp is from Stampin Up! and the ribbon I got from Michael's new Christmas ribbon. I hope you like it as much as I do.

So we were challenged to use squares that were about an inch in the design of our cards. Mine are 1.25 on the stamped area and 1.5 on the matting. I just got these stamps last week and had this design in my brain when I bought them, so it was nice to have an excuse to pull them out and use them.

So for this contest I decided to make a card for my Grandpa, a retired farmer.
I had been thinking about making one from the fun farming images on this Cartridge, so it was fun to have a reason to take the time to do it! YEAH! Enjoy!
