Atlantic Hearts #183 NOEL

Even a beautifully simple sketch can really stretch your crafting muse!  I adore CAS cards, but know they are usually more complicated to get 'right.'  My attempts one this one created a small pile of trash in my paper recycling! lol   But I am so happy with the final result. It's shiny and festive...and pretty CAS.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #183 - play along and have some fun!  You can go there Wednesday to see what the other Design Team members have created. Lots of inspiration there for you.

The ornament was cut twice with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge, p. 56, once on gold paper, again on white. I used the smaller Winter Snowflakes die (Savvy) to cut the center of the white ornament, and again on a separate piece of gold. The snowflake was inset in the white shape and backed with another circle of white. I trimmed off the ornament cap from the white one as well.

I cut a piece of Fundamentals- All About the Gold acetate on an angle, and adhered it to the card base with Glue Dots behind the 'trees'. The rectangle is 2x3". The sentiment is from a retired CTMH set, Christmas Love, and was heat embossed. Both the panel and the ornament were popped with foam tape.  See the Less Is More challenge to use acetate or vellum here.
