SUO Challenge #58 – A Clean and Simple Holiday Card

     There's only a month and a half left until Christmas and even less time left until Hanukkah!  Do you have YOUR holiday cards done? 

     This is the time of the year when some of us are desperate for some great ideas for Clean and Simple – CAS – designs that we are able to complete quickly but still end up with a beautiful greeting card.  Our design team members have come up with some fabulous CAS ideas, and I know that you can, too!

     So that's all your challenge is this time – create and share with us a lovely holiday card that's clean and simple.  Not too many embellishments, not too many layers, not too many steps.  In fact, some of the most beautiful cards I've seen have had no layers, and lots of open space, drawing our attention to a small but elegant element on the card.  I really can hardly wait to see all your ideas! 

     To get you started, I hope you'll enjoy our Design Team's Clean and Simple designs!

     To participate in our challenge, make a card or other project and post a photo of it to your blog or a gallery on the internet.  Then come back here and use our link tool at the bottom of this post to share the photo with us!  We're looking for cards posted to the internet after November 12, 2012, and (of course!) made with Stampin' Up! products only.    The products may be those that are in current catalogs, or they may be retired products.  But (as our blog title says) SUO – Stampin' Up! Only!  This means that Products from other papercrafting, rubber stamp, die-making or other companies may not be included in your project if Stampin' Up! sells a like product.  For example, Stampin' Up! does not sell sewing thread.  So use of sewing thread from another company is just fine.  Stampin' Up! does sell the Sizzix Big Shot, so use of die-cuts, texture plates or other such products from another company is not fine.  If you have a question, please send an e-mail to our Coordinator, Robin Messenheimer, and she'll be glad to answer it!

Challenge Dates:  November 13, 2012 (3 am USA Eastern Time) –
