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.

Back in action

Wow, it's been ages since I posted anything. We went out of town last week, and before that I was finishing up work projects so we could travel. I'm back with a three-fer.

This for Etsy Inspired challenge # 64, inspired by the lovely pale colors of this awesome triangle scarf from a wonderful Etsy retailer called Barefoot Weaver.

I used Card Positioning System sketch CPS 144.

And it qualifies for Stamping for the Weekend's colour challenge to use lilac and silver.

The glittery snowflakes are all stickers. (I really am not a sticker person, but a friend gave me a bunch of holiday stickers, and I am finding them useful for making quick cards. These snowflakes are especially pretty. I am not fond of snow, but I do love snowflake shapes.) The tiny greeting (from a holiday set that I picked up either at HL or Mikes -- it has no manufacturer's name on it) is embossed in silver.
