Holiday Card Workshop 2013 #4 (Day 3)

Day Three of Holiday Card Workshop encouraged CAS card making for the holidays. In reality, I usually don't do CAS except at holiday time when I am mass-producing enough cards to send to our friends and family. I would rather spend the majority of my crafting time making "special" cards geared to specific individuals who really appreciate the effort. (You know who you are ;)

This card is absolutely the simplest ever. The design is from Julie Ebersole, which I saw her do last year in the Ellen Hutson Classroom, if I remember correctly. 

I just love this die - Memory Box Country Landscape. There isn't much stamping involved. Drawing the "road" to look realistic and splitting the paper after die cutting was the most difficult thing about this whole card. I was able to whip up six of these in under an hour! A little glue pen and glitter along the edges and on the roof-tops and trees and it's good-to-go!

Die: Memory Box
Cards and matching envies: Impress
Ink, stamp, twine, glitter: Papertrey Ink

Oh, this is gorgeous, Steph! I have this die and never thought of splitting it like that to add a road! Brilliant!

Hi Steph--love this great card! I've been debating about getting that die. Thanks for the inspiration!
