CASE Study AND CAS-ual Fridays

I've missed most of this month's challenges at CASE Study, with our muse Julia Stainton; love her style!  Here's Julia's inspiration card:


The brown and green combination with the cream lace makes such a pretty combination.  I decided to make mine into a Christmas card (can't have too many of those!).


supplies: kraft card base, design paper from Authentique Festive Collection, Hero Arts S5208 Designer Woodgrain, Latte chalk ink, The Craft's Meow Holiday Foundations, Adirondack Cranberry ink, Sizzix Sizzlits Branch with Leaves, unknown lace trim, red pearls

I liked the way the kraft and green with splashes of red looked on this card, so I used it for my inspiration for a card for CAS-ual Fridays, the challenge being to make a CAS card and use kraft:


supplies: kraft cardstock, Hero Arts LP128 Artistic Windows, Latte chalk ink, The Craft's Meow sentiments from Hearth and Home and Holiday Foundations, Adirondack Cranberry Ink, old Jo-Ann holly leaf stamp, VersaFine onyx black ink and red pearls

Kraft, green, and red make a perfect combo for Christmas! I love the sprinkling of red "berries" and the stamped woodgrain on both cards, Lin. Thanks for joining us this week at CASE Study and CAS-ual Fridays!
