CAS Christmas Wreaths

Hello Friends!  Welcome to Wednesday. I have a few more Christmas cards to share. I wanted to create something nice, that had great impact, that was fairly flat for easy mailing and that didn't take me two days to create. Hmmm. Well. I still had the Wreaths Plain and Fancy on my work table, so I thought I would go with that again. I love this set and I make no apologies for using it so much! Heck! You might even see it in the spring time, dressed up for Easter, who knows! are the cards...please click on the pictures to enlarge them.

I went really CAS with these and with the help of my MISTI, I was able to create a stack of cards in just a few hours. The card design is the same on all, I just switched up the color of card stock. I created these assembly line style and it was a breeze. I die cut the focal panels with a stitched rectangle die then stamped the images with Versamark and heat embossed with silver or gold. I matted the focal with silver or gold paper and adhered it onto the card base. I decided to keep it REALLY simple and match my focal panel with the card base. Nice and easy.

For the inside, I set up my MISTI again and just stamped out the greeting with ink that coordinated with the card bases.

I really like the font on this set. The Merry Christmas on the front of the cards is part of this set, as well. Anyway, I have a few more of these to make and then I will be finished with Christmas cards for 2015!

And that is it for me today. Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fantastic Friday!

Gorgeous cards, Barb! I adore the simplicity! Sometimes simple is definitely WOW when the image can hold up. And this image absolutely can. Thanks so much for sharing!!
