CAS Christmas Card

Another quick CAS Christmas Card today to join in with a few Challenge.

I started by using a Gummiapan 'Integrated Rectangles' die in the white card front and backing the aperture it left with a piece of a double sided adhesive sheet , leaving the aperture sticky.  The die was used again with silver mirror card and the silver frame was put in place inside the aperture.  I used the die again with two snippets of Christmas patterned paper and inlaid the pieces into the frame.  A silver peeloff sentiment finished off my card. 

I am joining in the following challenge:

As promised in a previous post, here are a few photos of  my surprise birthday trip to Iceland this month.
Reykjavik Cathedral

.....and to finish, a sign which should be next door to every craft store!
