CAS Gift

I bought a few older Penny Black stamps recently.  They look beautiful simply heat embossed - no need for any colouring or anything fancy.  In other words, ideal for making multiples or when you need a quick card.

Beautiful rich gold embossing powder, a stitched square die cut to add interest, a black sentiment and black border, and embellished with a few black gemstones to balance the sentiment.

It's perfect for three challenges this week:

Merry Monday - Make a Christmas card with the word "Noel" on it 
My card is also inspired by the neutral colours in their challenge image.

Jingle Belles - No Time like the "Presents"

Merry Christmas Challenge - Clean and Simple

Stamps - Penny Black Merry Gift, Wordsworth Wee Noel
Ink - ColorBox gold, Versafine Onyx Black
Paper - white and black cs
Size - 4.75" square
Accessories - gold and clear embossing powder, Lil Inkers stitched square die, black gemstones


  1. Perfect CAS card Susan. The gold embossing and black frame create a very elegant card. xx
