Endless Wishes

It's time for another fabulous challenge at Addicted to CAS!
Once again this week, Hannelie is our Guest Designer. Make sure you stop by and show her card some love. I just love her CAS style. She really rocks it!  For my card, I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
I thought that little panel would work perfectly for my vellum. And I was able to use up a little tiny scrap of DSP, too! lol 
I was so happy to see Endless Wishes revived in the Holiday Catalog. I don't have many sets for Christmas cards, and this one works great for plain old winter cards, too. Just change the sentiment and it can become whatever you want!  I stamped the snowflakes on my cardstock in Silver Encore ink and stamped off Island Indigo. My vellum panel is adhered underneath the DSP strip and with two staples in the right-hand corner.  

I made a second card on Brushed Silver cardstock that I actually like better, but for the life of me I could not get a picture where you could see the snowflakes that I stamped under the vellum! I will go ahead and show you the card anyway, just envision the snowflakes under the vellum. lol They are really nice and subtle in real life, I promise! :)
Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to check out the lovely creations by the rest of the ATCAS design team!


  1. great way to use vellum and love the single snowflake stamped on the front. The silver base is my fav x

  2. A beautiful effect achieved by layering the vellum on the stamped images!
    Thanks for your kind words too!

  3. Wonderful use of the sketch - I really like the silver card base card!

  4. Fab. cards Shana - love the silver cardstock, and the stamping. I think both cards are beautiful, and I can definitely envisage the snowflakes!
    Hugs, Sylvia x

  5. These are gorgeous! I just love how the vellum softens the look of the snowflakes. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  6. I love those snow flakes peeking through the vellum :)

  7. Beautiful cards - I love the sentiment on the vellum and then overlaid on the snowflakes!

  8. I saw your card in the gallery and it just popped right out. It's so amazingly simple and lovely.

  9. not difficult to envision the snow flake under the vellum it shows perfectly well. I too love the silver card and love your use of staples. Two fantastic CAS creations.


  10. Beautiful design Shana. Love the stamped snowflakes behind the vellum and the one stamped on top. The little strip of DSP adds some fun colour and pattern. Great design! Loll xx

  11. Just beautiful Shana! Your card is lovely and crisp. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!

  12. Two gorgeous cards Shana - love that touch of dp you've used in the design.

  13. Shana, I love that you stamped the snowflakes underneath the vellum and then added one on top. It really brings everything together. Adhering the vellum on the side was a great idea!
    Fabulous card
