I'm running behind this Christmas so I thought I'd try a CAS card using Framelits dies.
I started with a Crumb Cake card base. I used some dark green card stock to die cut three Christmas trees, then added some color by watercoloring over them in green. To add a little sparkle and texture, I outlined them and scribbled over them with a clear Spica pen. (It's hard to see the texture and sparkle in this picture.) I stamped the sentiment in Handsome Hunter using both a pad and a marker (I didn't like the coverage I got with a stamp pad alone, so I used the stamp pad first and then filled in any light spots with the marker before stamping). Since this is a large stamp and some of the letters had spots that still weren't as dark as I'd like, I used a blender pen to fill in where needed. I added a background of ivory burlap, then added my die cut trees over the burlap with mini glue dots. For a little sparkle, I added some rhinestones near my sentiment.
