CAS Colours and Sketches: Peace on Earth

The current sketch at CAS - Colours and Sketches has a nice angled section that I thought would be fun with a Christmas tree!!

Peace on Earth


The embossed background is from Cuttlebug and every time that I use it I get tons of questions about it. Sadly, I don't think it's out there any more.  I think it was called Rain/Snow and I think it was a European exclusive.  A year or so ago, when people asked about it, I could google it and find it - but I'm not finding it anywhere now.  I feel a little bad using it because someone might want it - but not quite bad enough to stop using it!!
  • Stamps: Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler
  • Paper: Simple Stories December Documented, Stampin' Up Garden Green, gold glimmer
  • Ink: Versamark
  • Accessories: Papertrey Ink Merry and Bright die, Cuttlebug embossing folder, misc gingham, May Arts twine, Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing powder, Avery Elle and Neat & Tangled sequins

I recently wrote to them (was it Provo Craft?) and asked them to please bring this embossing folder back. Maybe if more people would ask they would actually do it...
Love your card!

This is my style of card. I love it. Too bad the embossing folder isn't available. Someone could make a mint off it.

What a darling tree! Your gold accents are perfect, and I would use that embossing folder all the time if I had it. :)
