Speckled Christmas


Happy Saturday and I am happy to be playing with the new die I got from Impression Obsessions.  I need some more masculine looking cards so I created this one for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week.  I sprayed the bkg. with Mr. Huey's colour mist and then added the die cut trees on top and stamped the star on one of the trees and the sentiment from Paper Smooches. 
Easy and clean looking card; just the way I like it!  Thanks so much for coming by for a visit.

Wonderful card! That red star really sets it off.

Love this! Seems simple (maybe messy) to create, but has a big impact! Perfect if you wanted to mass produce it. I also love the pop of red!

The speckled background is fabulous. It really enhances the snowy feel of the design!

Another great card. Love the background. It really sets off the trees in the front and the red star and twine are perfect.
