A CAS card for this week's teapot. I hope to bring Stevie Mouse along later, but the tip of my thumb is cracked and sore, so I was going simple to get at least a card made (and also to finish my quota of Christmas cards for August).
5 3/4" square base. I need to get DH to look at stamps with me more often, he paid for the Impression Obsession Pine which I used on the card base and square panel, stamping it in Memories Soft Grey. Sentiment stamped in black on most cards, I tried Iced Spruce on one. Pine boughs stamped in Iced Spruce. I threaded fine silver cord through and added a single snowflake cut from holographic card, with a rhinestone to finish it. It's layered onto the largest Fleur de Lis square and popped up on foam.

These are gorgeous! I may have to case them - sorta. The only thing I have is the stamp set, but I sure do like this idea. I was wondering how you did the silver cord. Great idea. You have a special guy if he helps you pick out CS. On this end of the world, we need a hardware store nearby. :)
