Joy to the World - Papertrey Ink | CAS Geometric Design

Hello Friends! I couldn't resist. Back again today with another CAS Challenge: Geometric Design!
Who would have thought I'd have so much fun with clean and simple cards!

Over the last few days, we've been covered in a thick fog, and a blanket of the most magical, enchanting hoar frost. Each day the layers build up and today I see out my window the most beautiful white trees and crystals hanging off our twinkly lights. It really does look like a winter wonderland!
Which is a perfect inspiration for my card today!

For today's card, I wanted to create a focal point, and then use a geometric, repeating design to add a little more interest. I started this card by adding a super glittery, sparkly wood snowflake to the center. I used Gold embossing powder, mixed with Silver Halo glitter (it is no longer available on, but you can find it here). It creates this ultra-vintage-y sparkle that is simply irresistible! Atop that, I layered a white-embossed snowflake, decked out with tiny silver rhinestones.

Around the focal point, I die-cut the same mitten design (with a tiny snowflake) using PTI's Holiday Hugs MIM kit, stamped in Classic Kraft and Saffron Spice ink.

Some of the mittens got a dose of sparkly rhinestones, too.

This was such an easy card to make, and the simplicity is what's actually drawing me in. Who would have thought?!
 You can easily re-create this CAS Challenge card or try a different theme using a geometric design! Either way, we'd love to see!

Sending heaps of joy your way!
