December CAS Mix Up Reminder

Capture d_écran 2017-11-21 à 10.45.27Two choices to have fun with for the December Cas Mix Up Challenge.  You still have time to play before the 24th and lots of inspiration to be found on the Challenge.

I had to go back to our July Challenge and give tissue paper another try.  On a rectangular piece of Kraft card stock I adhered a holly leaf branch, die-cut 3 times and glued together, allowing some leaves to hang over the edge.  Then I applied a couple of layers of white tissue paper with Matte Medium.  Once dry, I added Color Box’s Frost White Pigment ink over the edges to give it a distress look.  I also added Versamark on the leaves to heat emboss some Sparkle powder, giving them some shimmer.  Then I proceeded to add Liquid Pearls as berries, to which I added red glitter.  A rectangle of red glitter paper was matted behind the Kraft paper to repeat the glitter theme 😉  “Joyeux Noël” (Merry Christmas) was stamped in Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed twice using my Misti (should of done this before adding the berries, can you see? …they got crushed 😦  )  I centered my piece onto AC white card stock.

I hope that Christmas will bring you all a time of family gathering filled with love and peace, may this period by MERRY for all.  Let there be plenty of HOPE!

  1. Wow, Joanna, you have captured the feel of ice on this card! A fantastic use of tissue paper and I love the glittered berries! Another awesome card, my friend!


  2. Oh My Joanna, Gorgeous tissue background for your beautiful die cut holly leaves and berries. I LOVE all your different mixed media elements and yet, still CAS design. You amaze me my friend with your inspiring creations. Wishing you and your family a very special Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year. With Love and Peace.


  3. Very cool! Love the white tissue over kraft paper. Gives it a misty look that is so interesting. Love the combination of kraft, red and white — awesome! And the sparkle from the holly and berries is the perfect finishing touch. Lesson learned about stamping the sentiment first. 🙂 I’ll have to remember that! xx


  4. Jo, I love this card! After seeing it on our draft reminder post, I was eager to see how you did it – now that I’ve read your description, I want to give it a try. Love the way you used the tissue paper, and then added the white ink to distress the background and the sparkly embossing powder for the leaves.
