Black & Gold Easel Card

I'm here with another CAS creation, with a color combo that I wanted to do for a very long time.

I love CAS cards. So when I saw Keisha's card here, I wanted to make one based on her card. Here is her card:


. Black is one of my favorites... I've always admired the combination of black and gold colors. What could be more fitting than a Christmas card with golden ornaments!! Also, I've been wanting to try easel cards for a very long time. So here is my card.


The ornament is a stamp from Joanna Sheen's "Make A Wish" set and the sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "Christmas Penguins Clear Stamp Set "(Couldn't find the link now). I stamped them using grey ink (I didn't have white ink pad) and used my gold color glitter gel pen on it. It took me some time to re-trace the stamped image with glitter pen, but I feel it was worth the effort. Gold on black is a lovely color combination!!


I recently bought a Martha Stewart Snowflake punch and was waiting to use it. So here it is :) Colored it with golden glitter pen.


Closer look at the ornaments.

I'm still learning the art of stamping and in each new card, I would say I'm getting atleast a little bit better than the previous one. I'm glad about it and still looking forward to more learning experiences :)

Do share your thoughts and comments on the card. I love reading them.

Hello Berina, thanks re the getting to know you blog hop but No thanks my friend, I have had to turn this down many times as I really just don't have the time...thanks for asking me anyway. In regards to the cameo you need a special download which is around $75 UD but now I can import svg, jpeg, png files etc...it is well worth it and I do most of my 'work' on the cameo....print and cut instead of fussy cutting, you can colour but I prefer to do that manually, and the cut files are cheap....I have two cricut machines but seldom use them now I have the cricut but wouldn't sell them as I love what I do have on the cartridges, just the cameo does more....hope this helps.x
