CAS Joyeux Noel

It's the first Saturday of the month...
(and World Cardmaking Day!)

 and that means it's time again for a new challenge with the Stampendous team!  

This month, to kick thing off and celebrate World Card Making Day, we are looking towards the holidays AND trying to keep it Clean and Simple.  That's right - we are making Clean and Simple (CAS) holiday cards!!  

You'll see a few team members showing off more than one card today; some chose to make one CAS and then take that design and showcase how to "step it up".  Others chose to make sets of CAS holiday cards that could be given as gifts or used to make a dent in the Christmas card list. 

Our challenge to you this month is to join us in making CAS holiday cards.  We want to help you get into the holiday spirit, so this month we are giving away a Cling Jumbo Sparkle Joy set to a random winner. 

You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  You have until Thursday, November 3 at 11:59 PM EST to add your link to the linky tool, and we'll draw a random winner.  You can enter as many times as you'd like.

Here's my CAS card for the challenge:

Since I am on the Stampendous "Michael's Design Team" I made my card totally with supplies from Michael's!

I found these great Diecut Shapes in the Recollections line at Michael's.  They come in a package with four silver outlined shapes and four gold ones.

All I did for this card is stamp Joyeux Noel in Stampendous Boss Gloss ink on one of the Gold  lines die cuts and embossed with Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Then I backed the die cut with a slightly larger gold panel and adhered the panel to a top folding A2 white card.

Easy Peasy!!!
The challenge: make a CAS holiday card or set of cards or gift 

Challenge runs through: Thursday, November 3 @ 11:59 PM EST
