Ready for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge? We have another wonderful sponsor and a beautiful image to work with for this week's theme: CAS-ual Christmas.
We're fortunate to have one of the best stamp companies sponsoring us this week: CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! I was lucky enough to design with many of Michele's stamps when I was a member of the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge Design Team, and I still love the graphic illustrations and beautiful fonts of these versatile sets.
The Curtain Call Crew got to choose a CFS holiday set to work with for this challenge, and I chose Christmas Carols:
Doesn't the holiday scene in the inspiration photo look cozy and relaxed? I love the rustic touches of burlap and the unexpected use of cool blue, so I included those elements in my design.
To create the tree as the focal image, I repeatedly stamped the four-petal flowers and decorated the centers with silver pearls. I stamped one of the sentiments in Early Espresso right on top.
I finished my clean and simple design with a stitched border and a strip of burlap ribbon for texture.
