CAS Christmas Cards

Good Monday Morning!
Back on the Dies R Us Blog again.  Today I want to share with you a couple of very clean and very simple Christmas Cards.  This is so not my style, but I thought I would show you how easy it really is to create a simple little Christmas card suitable for mailing, without extra postage, something I am not very familiar with. 
Again I used this awesome Christmas Tree die from Die-Versions.  It was on Close Out back in August and I managed to snatch one up.
Any simple tree die would work for this technique.  There are many Christmas Tree Dies to choose from in our fabulous Dies R Us Store.  Pick out a couple for yourself!
On this card I used the positive die cut and just adhered them on to a piece of Red card stock, which was them mounted on to the Polka Dot Designer Paper.
This card uses the negative portion of the die cut, which I backed with that same Polka Dot Designer Paper, mounted on Red card stock and then adhered to the Striped Designer Paper.  If you line your dies up perfectly on measured card stock it makes it so much easier to create 2 cards at once. 
These are super simple....super easy!  Quite out of my comfort zone.....I am heading back to my layers and accents.  lol

Check out the Forest of Christmas Tree Dies in our Dies R Us Store, you'll be happy you did!

  1. Both cards are fabulous, especially good for batch making too! I love the idea of using the negative and the positive, one way of getting better value from our craft stash, and perfect for keeping the postage costs down!

  2. These are both so sweet Donna! You're so good with any style. That's such a great idea to use both parts of the die too. You're always an inspiration to me!!

  3. Great use of negative and positive die cuts. It takes some planing for that. I would have had a bunch of trees and a bunch of scraps. Lol
    Nice to have the CAS cards to send without extra postage.

  4. Oh, Donna, I LOVE these and love how you can "use it all" and make such darling and CAS cards! What a great buy! Hugs! xoxo

  5. These are so cool and I love how you used the same tree die to create different looks with them. All your cards are wonderful!

  6. These are fabulous Donna! I love that you've used the positive AND negative cuts ... awesome inspiration! GREAT job!

  7. Oh Donna, I just love how you used the positive & negative and the different papers. Thanks for an awesome idea.

  8. LOVE what you have done with those dies. Using the negative is GENIUS!!! I really like the look, and the patterned papers you chose are perfect. You have inspired me once again!!

  9. Love how you used the positive and negative die cuts! Very creative. I love those quick Holiday card layouts when I have 70 cards to make. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  10. Fabulous cards. I love CAS! These are actually more than CAS with layers, fabulous!!

  11. Super fun and cute to boot! These would be so easy to mass produce.
