I love the CAS layout this week. The twist is to use stitching, either real or faux. While I normally love any type of hand stitching, this week did not lend itself to that form of relaxation. You'll see I used faux stitching around my die cut.
On a happier note, I've been playing with my new 'Tis the Season stamp set from Mark's Finest Papers. I first stamped it in Versafine, then in Melon Mambo and using the Rock in Roll Techniques, I went around the edges of the bauble with Rose Red. Finally I heat embossed the whole thing with sparkle glitter. It gives it a beautiful shine that's hard to see in this image but I love how crisp it came out.
I admit the card has lots of colour but I really like the retro vibe and I have a cousin that will love it! Hope you join us this week!
