Christmas Card Club - CAS one layer

Good morning all.
Sorry I haven't been around for a few days, I'm hoping to catch up with everyone today at sometime. I've been making some wedding samples for my second nephew and spent a lovely day with my sister yesterday as Graham and his fiancée were there for the day. I think the wedding invites are going to have penguins on! They both love penguins and everyone loved the sample invite I made so I think we're almost sorted!!

It's time for our next challenge over at the Christmas Card Club, Zoe has chosen "CAS and one layer".  Here's my card:


The stamp is a very old one from a large wooden boxful bought from QVC many moons ago! I've stamped with a DI embossing pad and embossed with silver detail EP. The silver cord is from Meiflower and the cute little card blank (4"x4") is from Craftwork Cards.


You'll find the links to the other girls in my sidebar if you'd like to pop over and see their creations.

  22. A great one layer card Carol. Love the look of it. Maybe I will have to try a few of them, just to bring the stash up some. So many to do so little time.
