CAS Christmas Card with Altenew

Hi guys!

How are you today? I can’t believe it’s end of November already! Time flies. And since it’s only a few weeks until Christmas now I recently made another Christmas card for my stash. Once more I was going for a CAS (clean and simple) design with lots of white space and only two layers in total. I used Altenew stamps and dies as well as Distress Inks from Ranger Ink.

TAKE A LOOK AT MY CAS CHRISTMAS CARD:

I have been seeing quite a lot of cards online where the “O” in JOY or SNOW has been replaced with a snowflake which I found really beautiful … And I thought I’d change that up a little by using the pine cone from Altenew’s Poinsettia & Pine as my “O”.

When I was coloring the pine cone I didn’t like the outcome so I actually colored a second one and this time made sure to use a loose watercoloring method where I leave some white / uncolored highlights (I have also blogged a flower card using this loose watercoloring HERE). I used two different brown shades of Distress Inks and added my watercoloring in two layers.

For my background, I used masking tape to create a partial visual frame and then ink blended two shades of green onto it. To finish my design off I added gold splatters over the background and gold highlights on the Bold Alphabet die cuts using a Uniball Gel Pen.

CAS Triangle Cards with Altenew

Hello!

I squeezed in some time to play with my never before used Triangle dies from Altenew (love!) and took the challenge of making a card with the color scheme from their current Inspiration Challenge! This color combo Isee banner below) is far outside my comfort zone but you all know I love a good cardmaking challenge and stretch my creative muscles in that way! 😉

HERE’S MY FINISHED TRIANGLE CARD:

CAS Triangle Card with Altenew 1

I was going for a CAS design with some dimension to it (thanks, foam tape!) … And texture from the ink smooshing and splattering. The label sentiments look almost black in the pictures but are actually stamped with a dark green ink. Sentimentssss, yes – because I had so many leftover pieces after making this card that I put together a second one with a very similar design.
