Eclectic Ellapu December 2016 Pink Team Challenge

Me, ambitious? Never! ;) ...says the lady who made FORTY of these Christmas cards! I got the buckle idea from something I saw on Pinterest years ago, and had a fun (and eventually tedious) time making these paper belts & buckles. This also made great use of the button stash that I just had to buy as a kid, and am still working my way through.

Do you have a great Christmas make? Join in Eclectic Ellapu's December "Anything Christmas" challenge!

Can I CAS?

Clean and Simple (CAS) cards have not really been my strong suit. I find my eyes are most frequently drawn to complicated, heavily embellished or multiple layer projects. My inspiration boards on Pinterest definitely corroborate this! I started this batch of birthday cards during a crafting evening with friends, so I did not want to spend hours designing a card; I wanted to get crafting! So I tried my hand at CAS.

While I accomplished my CAS goal, these cards still took hours... although a lot of that was drying time after playing with making my green, yellow, and blue Brushos fireworks streaks!
