CAS Christmas card

This week's Etsy Inspired Challenge #65 shop is So Stinking Sweet, which sells scented soaps. My inspiration was a red soap with white snowflakes on it. The card ended up being clean and simple, and I really like it. The showflake is from Impression-Obsession, embossed with Winter Wonderland EP. The greeting is an old, no-name one from Hobby Lobby or Big Lots, but it's very useful at this time of year. I used Colorbox Chalk Ink (color "Lipstick") on it. And I got to use my new nesties for the first time!

The layout is from Card Positioning System's current sketch CPS 145.
And, for SmART-Works "smART-Word" challenge this month, it's a Christmas card.


  1. Very stunning visual contrast with the red and white, and great take on the inspiration piece! Will you end up doing two more in each of the colors?

  2. Hi-I posted an interview with an American Greetings Writer and Author today on my Greeting Card Designer blog. I thought you & your readers might be interested in it:
