  3. Great CAS card, Shirley, the image looks great overhanging the background, and the blue and yellow dotty papers work well together. I love that there is plenty of room for a Christmas letter on the inside. I think it would also be able to be adapted to a smaller card for posting. Jane

  6. Fab card. I like the CAS idea, some cards are getting so full of 'stuff ' it borders on ridiculous. Also we need to remember why we send cards for the message. Crafty Wishes. Laura XXXXX
