Less is More #146 Use Designer paper in a CAS way!

Well this is a good chance to use some of the huge stash of designer paper I thought but of course doing it in a CAS way means not using very much of it! Now originally this card was going to have a red bow that I had cut on my Craft Robo. I had been trying some things out on it as I really ought to use it more than I do!

 

So I was all ready to put it together when I decided it should maybe have a bit of sparkle, after all it is Christmas, and smooched it with my Vanilla Smooch spritzer. Bad mistake as although it was nice and shimmery it made the red look pink so it didn't match the stamping or red mat.  No problem I'll just cut another I thought but the last red scrap of my paper was just not wide enough!  I didn't have any more of the red (which was the same pattern as the green I've used) so had to cut into a complete sheet of the green, and then find something to match for the mat. After all that I actually like this better with the green and red rather than all red. 

Card recipe:
