CAS CHRISTMAS OCTOBER CHALLENGE REMINDER ~ RED & GRAY

 Hi friends, we are halfway through October and you still have time to join us at CAS CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE  with a red and gray Christmas card!  Marcia is our fabulous hostess this month.


I used a PTI Round Off Edger to make my shape, then I ran it through a Sizzix 3-D Winter Snowflakes embossing folder.  My snowflake die cut is from Gina K Snowflake Trio and the sentiment is from Hero Arts Christmas Rose stamp set.  I also embossed the envelope flap with a snowflake embossing folder that was NOT 3-D!

You have until the 24th to enter your card in the gallery, I hope to see you there!

If you need more inspiration check out all the awesomeness at CAS Christmas to see more cards from the design team!  One more month of challenges friends!!


Heart Hugs, friends!
