Impression Obsession DT Challenge: CAS Holiday Cards

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a clean and simple project with a holiday theme.

I haven't brought myself to make Christmas cards this year... I have a hard time with mass-production... but if I do pull something together, the cards will be similar to these.

I used some backgrounds from my stash of gel prints as the base, which I embossed then lightly sanded. (I do have quite a lot of those, so each card would be unique... it's almost like not mass production, right? Almost.)

I cut a simple die cut image from white cardstock to lay over the background - all I had to piece in was the cutout inside the halo. The sentiment was stamped in Versafine ink.

This is the die I used, which is one of my designs from the latest release.
