Warm Winter Wishes

Hello All, I made this card last week just before we got our little snow storm but forgot to post it.
A non-card maker asked me if you could really make a good card with no layers on it so I set out to make a card to show her.   I wanted to make a CAS but sweet card so I went to my file with Deedee Anderson's images in it.    Here is what I ended up with.

I know it is very simple looking but I did want to do a card with no paper on it at all.  This is the second one I've done in a couple of weeks now and I'm getting to like them.  I printed both the image and sentiment by Deedee on Gina K Designs 120# paper so my Ccopics would not show through to the other side.  Then I embossing a portion of the card with a snowflake folder by Darice, chomped one top corner and I was done. It is certainly not the most exciting card, but I'm happy with it.  Glad to have you visit.  Enjoy the upcoming week.

  1. I wish I could focus on making CAS cards like this, but I always seem to feel the need to add layers and embellishments. This card clearly shows they're not needed! This turned out really cute!!

  4. It's a very nice card! And that is good to know about Gina K papers that won't bleed through. I will have to remember that! Such a cute, sweet image!

  10. I do so poorly at creating CAS. You my dear, really have a gift. Isn't it nice to know that there is one card stock you can count on to not bleed through? Great job, Donna!

  12. I love snowmen and this simple design is wonderful! I love that you didn't use any other papers! Neat idea, and good to know about the Gina K paper!
    We hardly have enough snow to make a snowman around here! We keep getting rain, and it's 40 degrees today! I'm not complaining! Have a good day, Donna!

  13. I think this is a fabulous one layer CAS card Donna! I love that cute snowman and the way you have colored him. The embossing adds interest without adding more paper, love it! Be careful with heavy snow shoveling Donna, do it a little at a time. Hugs, Brenda
