Today is also Stamp Simply day. For today's challenge, Sharon wants us to make a CAS Thank You note. Here's what she says:
Dec 25 - ssnotime119 -- Merry Christmas, Everyone! Hope you all had a fun time preparing for Christmas and that you can now rest and enjoy this Blessed Day with a sense of calm and relaxation. Today let's create some Clean and Simple Thank You Notes to send out. Any theme goes -- whatever you are in the mood for. And remember, there is no time limit -- so feel free to link here whenever you get some thank you notes made -- no rush! Relax and Enjoy this Christmas Day!!!
Since today *is* Christmas, I decided to squeeze in one more Christmas themed card. It's very simple and will be easy to make in multiples. First, I used SU! Brushed Silver card stock for the base and added a layer of Real Red. Then I embossed a piece of Whisper White with the Lace Tree folder and added a strip of silver and red ribbon. Then I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Signature Christmas set--you can't get a sentiment that would fit this challenge any better than this one, LOL--on Whisper White with Pure Poppy ink and cut/embossed it with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die. Then I edged it with a silver paint pen and popped it up on top of the ribbon with foam squares. Some flat back silver pearls at the corners finished it off. It's 'kinda' CAS, right?
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave a comment on Sharon's blog telling her where you uploaded. Please use the keyword ssnotime119 if you upload to a public forum. Check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team!
