This month the challenge is all about CAS (Clean and Simple), which just happens to be my favorite style! Just remember that CAS means LOTS of white space and simple designs.
Last Summer I was the lucky winner of one of Pinkfresh Studio's grand prizes, where I won the whole release for the month of July! Included was a stamp, stencil, die, & hot foil plate for the Thankful for Friends set, and I used it for my CAS card. Take a look:
I started with a white card base and another layer of white that I embossed with SU!'s Subtle embossing folder (sadly retired).
Next I foiled the flower image on a piece of Hammermill cardstock with Spellbinders Aura foil, then stenciled the leaves with a couple Gina K green inks, and then die cut the image out.
I used a piece of DSP from the Craft Consortium (Ink Drops Dusk) that my sweet friend Loll gifted me, and foiled the image again in the same Aura foil, and then proceeded to fussy cut the 2 flowers and 1 bud and paper pieced them to the first foiled piece I had done. I also foiled one of the Nested Diamonds Hot Foil Plates (the largest one) and glued it off center on the left side of my card base, before gluing down the flowers. I finished by simply stamping my sentiment (that comes with the stamp set) in black and adding a few PTI Rainstones.
We look forward to seeing what YOU create for this CAS challenge, so check out all the FABULOUS inspiration from the talented DT, and then play along right HERE. This challenge is open till the 25th at 5:00PM. A BIG THANK YOU to all the ladies at The Flower Challenge for letting me play along with you this month...I am so tickled and honored to be joining you!!
