CAS JOY To The World

Back again!

I finally decided to make 20 CAS Christmas card designs.  This to me, is a mass production.  I know there are some of you who do a lot more than 20.  But I have about 30 Christmas cards made in a variety of themes and I always make 40 Beach Photo Christmas cards (which is a lot quicker than making a 'real' card).  I really would love to scale back, but I fear I may have to make even more.

These will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, Star Light Star Bright, Simon Says Wednesday, Anything Goes, and Penny Black, Clean And Simple.

Here is my CAS Christmas card collection.

I started with a design in pinks, not really what I was going for. 
Sentiments embossed in pink too.

Designer Papers by PTI

I switched over to a more rustic look.  Again, using Designer papers by PTI.
Stitched Nesting Stars by Tutti Designs
Stamped Flourish by Stamp Of Approval, Beautiful World Collection
Sentiments also by PTI; Wonderful Words Joy. Heat embossed in White.

Today's Tip:  Always make sure when using your Misti that you place the card base in the correct way, otherwise, use a handy dandy piece of Washi Tape to conceal the evidence lol.  Thankfully I only did this once, now who will be the lucky recipient of that?  HA!
Thanks for coming by.
Merry Merry!


  1. Fabulous design and a great save, who would know right? Have a great day!!

  2. Those are all really great, Donna! The design is so festive and fun! Well done with the Washi tape.
    There are no mistakes...just new opportunities for embellishment! :o)

  3. More and more I am loving rustic, especially with anything kraft. I really like your CAS design, all the elements are just right. And I'm with you, I would like to cut back, but it seems I am sending out more cards than ever. It's what I These are fabulous!!!!

  4. Sweet rustic love! These are fabulous Donna! Thanks for the washi tape tip. I do that often. ;0)

  5. Such a darling way of using the stars in a layered capacity, Donna! Your flourish stamp is gorgeous, by the way, and so pretty - like icing on gingerbread - against the kraft cardstock, to create a warm and endearing quality. Love those designer papers in the back layer! Thanks for the inspiration today, Donna - I need to address my cards! hugs, de

  6. I really love thr rustic one. I did mass this year of 30 for the first time. I do 50 for daughter, 10 as gift and 20 for me. I am trying to increase my own list LOL. I never sent cards until recent years LOL

  7. Perfect CAS Christmas card. Very clever "concealment".

  8. Gorgeous CAS design. And, Washi tape comes in mighty handy for me too at times.

  9. such a great design you came up with, love the different papers you use also, good thing you came up with a good fix for your boo boo :)
