12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 3/ CASology 73 - Ribbon


I'm doubling up today - this card is for the Holiday Inspiration Group - Christmas Day 3



 as well as for this week's CASology Cue Card, which is Ribbon



Ribbon makes me think of gifts and one of the best gifts we could get this Christmas would be Peace on Earth, don't you think? I had this square sentiment from Creatiate and a little ribbon from Simon Says Stamp. I heat embossed the ribbon in silver and then heat embossed the sentiment in clear before masking and sponging the 'present'.

So it's possible to make a CAS card with heat embossing and sponging. In fact I would say it's easy if you follow the absolute number one rule of CAS and leave loads of white space.

Now it's your turn - but before you go, check out the rest of the DT's interpretations of Ribbon!

What a wonderful CAS card with a small image, but a HUGE message! I love this, Ardy! If only we could put a wish for peace in a box and open it at Christmas!! Hugs, Darnell

I love your peace in a box and that bow. I LOVE that bow, like stamped twine, just like I like it. (Is that enough loves and likes in one short paragraph?)
