CAS Christmas Card

My one grandson fell in love with my cuttlebug machine a few years ago when I helped him make a school project.  He had to build some kind of Mesopotamian temple and we used a small block patterned EF on beige paper and added some distressing in a bit darker ink to make it look like blocks of sand.  Yesterday, in the midst of the Christmas mayhem, he asked me if I ever needed help cuttlebugging things.  Because he would be happy to come over and help.  

I must admit, I'm a bit in love with the machine myself.  And I have a difficult time resisting when I come across an EF I don't have.  The folder I used for this card is just fantastic for a CAS card.

  1. Great card! I totally get where your grandson is coming from, my 11 year old son will emboss or cut anything I let him with the cuttlebug! Thanks for playing along with the Drunken Stampers this week for the Embossing challenge!

  2. Super cute, Debi. Yes, I admit - I have an embossing addiction too!

  3. It's fabulous! Thanks for joining at ATSC: Lovely Wishes

  4. Great embossing folder and I love that poinsettia! I would be lost without my Cuttlebug! It's nice to have a young assistant to help out LOL.

  5. I am so lucky - my kids were briefly infatuated & then moved on. The dog, though, uses it as a head rest when she's under the desk :) Love the shimmery paper! Thanks so much for playing with us at Drunken Stampers!

  6. Beautiful card! Loved the story about your grandson. My grandson was so infatuated with my Big Shot and my dies, that I bought a little Cuttle Kids Die cutting machine for him. He doesn't use it so much anymore (he's 9yrs old now and prefers to us his Copics) but I have two granddaughters who will get to enjoy it now.

    I love the embossing on your project and the placement of the sentiment. Nice use of line, space, placement and color! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!

  7. Thanks for entering your lovely card for CHNC challenge 156 - you could also enter this into my CHNC challenge extra for December - I'd love to see it there too. x

  8. Both my grandkids think the Cuttlebug is rather magic, too. :) Such an elegant Christmas card, with beautiful embossing. So glad you joined us at Drunken Stampers for the embossing challenge!

  9. A wonderful Christmas card. I love the sentiment and colour combo.

    Thank you for joining in with the Scribble & Scrap challenge and good luck x

  10. Beautiful card... the deep rich red works so perfect against the white....
