I made a CAS (sort of) Christmas card this morning. I had an element that was already made beforehand; I guess I made it and decided not to use it, so it went into a little box for that sort of thing. It is a dark blue die cut from Spellbinders Majestic Elements on which I had heat embossed in gold the word "Gloria." The stamp is from a CTMH set in my stamp drawer. There are two gold pearls added, one to the top of the piece and one to the bottom.

I ran a white piece of cardstock through a Paper Studio A2 Curl Ribbon EF and spray painted it gold; then sprayed over it with some Krylon Diamond Dust spray. The diamond dust spray is so subtle that you almost cannot tell it is there, but maybe it adds just a small element of extra bling. The sentiment is put on with pop dots; a sparkly, blingy gold bow is placed at the bottom of the card.

Here it is:
