Stampin Up Festival of Trees CAS card

This is a simple but pretty card I made for a Christmas card swap.  I am a little bitter at the USPS.  My return swap was scanned in Cincinnati on December 1 and I still don't have it!!!  I went to the post office yesterday and there is nothing they can do for two weeks!  UGH!  USPS has lost multiple packages of mine this year, it is very frustrating! At least I know the others in the swap received their cards.

The swap was to be a Christmas card with a sentiment inside.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:


  1. This is so pretty! I love the clean and simple style and your card shows that CAS need not be white and boring. I love it! I love the fiber inside and the way the washi is in graduated sizes to mimic the shape of your tree. (I share your frustrations with the post office . . .)
