CAS Christmas ~ September ~ Sparkle or Shine!

Welcome to another CAS Christmas!
We are halfway through September so this is our reminder post to get those cards done early!
We are still looking for sparkle and/or shine on your Christmas card!
What fun!
I pulled out Taylored Expression Brilliant Baubles for this first card:

I foiled the outline and the sentiment using Deco gold foil.  It sure has a lot of shine to it!
After adding the foil using my laminator I used the stencils that come with this set to add my colors.
I love the non-traditional colors!

I have one more card for you, this time I used the Glimmer hot foil machine:
This is a Spellbinders Holiday Florals hot plate and die set.
I used my zigs to color in the images.
The circle is from The Greetery:  Crimped Circles

Thanks for stopping by friends, I hope you are inspired to make some shiny or sparkly Christmas cards!
Please go check out the design team for more inspiration!

Heart Hugs, friends!
