One Step Too Far...Not for the Easily Offended
Can you guess what I don't like about this card? Hmmm. Keep in mind I'm a dirty-minded English literature dweeb who sees Christ figures and phallic symbols everywhere. There are, obviously, no Christ figures on this card.
Why, oh why, did I round the corners on the sentiment panel?!?!?
Otherwise, I totally love this card and think it's really very festive and pretty. The little row of gemstones is perfect, don't you think? And embossing snowflakes in white on red sings to my color-loving soul. But I just can't get past the, um, erectile nature of the sentiment panel.
This is, of course, easy to fix in future manifestations of this card, but I wanted to share it with you AS IS so you can see that CAS is about knowing when to STOP messing with a design. Sometimes, it's easy to take it one step too far. Once you round the corners, you can't unround them.
Sheesh, I might as well have used a pear on this card and been done with it!
