Our Craft Lounge - CAS Holiday

Hi All!!  Popping in today to share some CAS (clean and simple) holiday cards.  I have to share a secret with you - as a practice, I don't do any mass production of my cards.  I simply don't like the monotony of cutting and stamping the same thing over and over.  The ONLY exceptions to that rule are when my close family and/or friends ask for an order of cards.  My darling SIL (sister-in-law) recently asked me for a grouping of cards for her to give gifts in.  So I took the opportunity with this week's OCL challenge to create a bunch of cards for her.  I used OCL's White Christmas and Winter Wishes sets pulling out all of the individual snowflakes.  I stamped the snowflakes using Versamark Dazzle ink.  I then used clear embossing powder to heat set them all.
I used some fabulous starry paper for my banner ended sentiment panels, a couple of wraps and a bow using wonderful baker's twine and a chipboard embellishment adhered with Glossy Accents.  Each card is a bit different as I changed the orientation of the snowflakes and each one has a different chipboard embellishment.
I hope you have enjoyed and are having a very creative weekend!!

Haven't used the Versamark dazzle before but I do like the shimmer you achieved. Love the idea of sparkle on craft.
