I went with die-cut and designer paper and came up with this CAS Christmas card.
I die-cut two patterns of plaid paper and positioned them as "hills". I then stamped and die-cut these tiny little images from the Hero Arts Monthly Kit and created a wee scene. I finished the card with a die-cut sentiment cut from glitter paper, which looking at it now shows the 'l' in Peaceful is a bit skewed :)
