clean and simple sunday no. 50

If you are a regular card-maker, then this time of year, despite the heat and humidity, is the time when you start thinking about Christmas cards. Most of the big stamping companies launch their Holiday Catalogs this time of year and A Muse|Studio is no exception. I’ve been working up a few designs these last several weeks and making samples as well. For today’s card I chose a really simple design using two of the die sets offered by A Muse|Studio…

This was an extremely simple card to make and it would be a great one to send out to those you may know who don’t necessarily celebrate Christmas… I took a sheet of latte cardstock and cut a small base card—5 x 7″, folding along the 7″ side creating a final base card that measures 5″ x 3.5″.  This is the smallest card size allowable in the US Mail and fits in a 4bar envelope.  I typed out a sentiment on white cardstock using the ROCKWELL font that came with my computer. You could very easily stamp a sentiment instead… I cut out the sentiment using one of the Label 8 Nestabilities dies and trimmed off one edge. I also cut a medium size snowflake in winter sky using the snowflake trio die set. I glued it all together and added a few sparkle stickers to match the sentiment. Clean, simple and very easy to mass produce…

I have a lot more ideas for CAS Christmas cards that I will be sharing in the coming weeks… for a little instant inspiration check out the cards I added a few weeks ago to the Card Gallery tab at the top of this post!
