Hey everyone!  As many of you may know I have just finished up my Clean & Simple Christmas card swap.  I usually try to make it a point to make a few cards for the swaps that I host and today I will be sharing one of the cards I made.

I haven't used these tag punches in a long time and so I thought they would be perfect (along with the image I chose) to make a CAS Christmas card. 

First, I stamped my images and then I punched them out using my small tag punch.  The images are layered on coordinating card stock which I punched out using my large SU tag punch.  Along the bottom of my card I punched the real red border using my MS border punch called Cornice.  My son picked out this punch for me and so I had to use it.

I decided to go with some gold elastic cording for my embellishment.  I have no idea why, but I seem to think that gold goes nicely with red and green rather than silver.

Well that's about it for today.  I have two more CAS Christmas cards to share and I will be posting another one tomorrow.  Make it a great day!

Stamps: Tags So Much
Card Stock: White, Real Red, DP- from DCWV Paper Stack
Ink: Real Red, Glorious Green
Supplies: Gold Elastic Cording, Large & Small SU Tag Punches, Martha Stewart Punch Cornice Pin It
