Here is a card I made for a friend who has a winter birthday. It was CAS and quick to make. I embossed the black background with a polka dot embossing folder and used the backside so it would be more flat. Die cut the trees and the friend sentiment and glued them on. Added the half pearls and I was done. As usual it packed a lot more punch in real life.
