A CAS Christmas Card

Hello friends,

Just popping in today to share a card I have posted on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog today. I am sharing an idea for a clean and simple (CAS) holiday card using Trendy Triangles and Hello December.

I stamped 3 triangles from Trendy Triangles with green pigment ink on a piece of white cardstock and transformed them into Christmas trees with the addition of a tiny truck created from strips of brown cardstock and teeny wood stars.  I added a fun polka dot border using washi tape and stamped "hashtag" Christmas from Hello December. I rounded the corner of the white cardstock and adhered it to a kraft card base with foam tape.  My final step was to round the corner of the kraft cardstock base. 

I think the key with CAS Holiday cards (for me at least) is finding the balance between simplicity and easy production with accents, tools, and techniques that keep it interesting for the card maker and the recipient. The addition of the washi tape and those wooden stars add a lot of interest while not taking a lot of time. 

Well that's all for me today! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
