Christmas Card Challenges: CAS

Happy Sunday, everybody! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and I have to tell you, this style is always a tough one for me…Clean and Simple (CAS)!

I admire those who excel at CAS cards! Every time I try to make one, I keep thinking it’s missing something. Less is supposed to be more when it comes to CAS, right? Anyway, here’s my attempt at a CAS Christmas card:

Supplies: patterned paper [“Very Merry Christmas” mini pad – Echo park; “Wonderland” mini pad – Studio Calico  (red pattern)], sentiment stamp, tag die, tag stamp (“Fillable Frames 9” – PaperTrey Ink), tree stamp (My Mind’s Eye), twine (“Holly” – Trendy Twine/Annie’s Paper Boutique), ink (“Olive Grove” Memento – Tsukineko; VersaMark), white embossing powder, kraft cardstock.
Remember, all of our challenges are optional…the only “real” rule is that you must create a new Christmas, Holiday or Hannukah card, then link it up on our blog so we can stop by and say hi!

It’s not necessary that you use a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp on your card, but we sure love it when you do!

Don’t forget to visit the rest of the CCC team to take a peek at the fun and festive cards they’ve created this week: AlannaCorinneJennifer, JovitaKarenKatieLeesaLorieMargoMichelePat…and our guest designer for March, Hazel!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful week, and don’t forget to link your entry on the Christmas Card Challenges blog! See you there!
