A Clean and Simple Christmas

Hi everyone!  Welcome to another Stamp Simply CAS Christmas Wednesday!  Each Wednesday from now until Christmas, Sharon will start a hop from her blog with the some of the DT showing some quick and easy Christmas card designs.  It is pretty informal and some weeks I will have a chance to play along and some I won't.

Today I had a chance to use the new Christmas washi tape from My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland and All is Bright collections.  I love this washi tape, they both have really fun designs! 
When short on time, CASE yourself I say!  If you recognize this card, it's because I made it before (and it actually made the cover of CardMaker magazine).  I added a small silk ribbon bow to the top corner and some silver rhinestones to give the card that extra Christmas umph!
I took a couple photos to show how I used the tape.  This picture shows how I laid out the tape overlapping the card's edge.  This makes it easy to get the pieces even and if you make a mistake, no worries - it's removable!  You can see I laid the stamp out to make sure I had enough room when I was done for the sentiment (from JustRite's, Large Fancy Holiday Sentiments).
Here is a picture of the back side after I folded the ends over.
My next card uses the same washi tapes and cardstock, I just changed up the card design, added some twill ribbon tabs and a button and used red rhinestones instead of silver.
Check out the other girls's blogs and see what CAS Christmas inspiration they have for you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  I'll leave you with a couple close up pictures.
