My offerings today are very much CAS! I'm beginning to realise that I haven't appreciated the creative freedom that CAS can give us and it's fab for Christmas cards when we have so many to make. The challenge at Less is More this week is a Sketch and when I first looked at it, I thought I'd never pull it off without the recipient checking the envelope to see what had fallen off! I knew it could be done because of the fabulous samples done by Chrissie and Mandi - I just didn't think that I could pull it off. (What a wuss!! You could be forgiven for thinking I was brand new to card making instead of having been making them in all sorts of different styles for 8 years!)
Working on the basis of 'nothing ventured, nothing gained' I decided to go for it and these are what I came up with. When I showed the card with the red poinsettia last week, it got a very good response so I've come up with these two that have the faux embossed border and a script background - this script is different to the one used on the Gold and Silver versions. One being predominantly red and the other predominantly green. They have just gone into the shop today. They are png files so you can overlay them onto digital bp before printing them off if you want to. I overlaid these onto one of the sheets from the 8x8 Gold collection, then resized to just 6cm x 6cm. I love this aspect of digis, whether I want the image to take up the entire front of and 8x8 card or just a small area on a 6x6, I can have it. The sentiment is computer generated and printed directly onto linen effect card stock.
I'm also entering my cards into these challenges:
- Rainbow Lady's - White space
- Allsorts - Keep it simple
- Fab's Big Christmas Cards Challenge - Poinsettia and/or Christmas birds.
Thank you for visiting today.
