CAS(E) This Sketch 201 - Christmas Wishes!


My card for this week's CAS(E) This Sketch may be my favourite Christmas card this year so far... maybe... I've made a few that I like, haha!

I like the simplicity and the soft colours of this one. I really love the gold frame and the tiny gold sprigs on what is a fairly plain design. The slightly raised frame gives the card a subtle little extra something while it remains almost flat for easy mailing.
I used PTI Botanical Blocks IV stamps. I coloured using Copics. I really love all of the Botanical Blocks stamps. Unusually for me, I have the entire collection AND the dies.
Isn't this a cool sketch? I'm definitely going back to make more cards with this one, probably some one-layer super-CAS cards!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you're inspired to join the fun!

Beautiful card. I love how you've colored the holly leaves and framed them so elegantly.

I agree with your thoughts - the simplicity and soft colours are what attracted me right away. Sooo pretty!
