Another CAS Vintage Card for Two Challenges :-)


 Hi Stampers!!

Happy Monday!!  Mondays are a stressful day for me in the office so I wanted to relax and unwind this evening in my “sanity” (I mean craft room:-)). 

I originally had a sepia tone card in mind for the DD37 Dynamic Duos neutral color challenge this week and opted originally for a CAS Vintage card (see my last post) so while I still had all of the supplies out, I decided to create another card with these colors and use the Splitcoaststampers' CAS204 sketch.   Not sure if this card would qualify for as Clean and Simple (CAS) to some artists but to me it is:-)

This card really is quite simple:

On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the flowers using Soft Suede Classic Ink (stamping some of the flowers off to lighten the ink).  Using a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake Classic Ink and Soft Suede, sponge the edges and center of the card (Crumb Cake in the center and Soft Suede along the edges) to create a sepia tone.  Add a bit more interest with the Color Spritzer Tool and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write marker.

Stamp the butterflies using Soft Suede Classic Ink onto Crumb Cake and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  Using the Sponge Dauber, apply Crumb Cake ink over the butterfly and around the edges of the wings.  Use the Aqua Painter with Frost White Shimmer Paint and apply thinned paint to the butterfly wings and highlight some of the flowers on the main panel.

Mount the floral panel onto Crumb Cake and again onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  Use the Big Shot™ with the Finishing Touches Edgelits™ to cut the edge of a piece of Soft Suede, adhere the layered focal panel and add the ½” Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon bow and Antique Brad.  

Add the sentiment to the lower portion of the main panel and mount the entire panel using SU! Dimensionals to an embossed background panel of Very Vanilla.  Add the butterflies with Mini Glue Dots and Pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Stippled Blossoms, Papillon Potpourri, Short and Sweet

Ink:  Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Stampin’ Write Marker- Soft Suede

Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Finishing Touches Edgelits™, Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Medium Oval Punch, Elegant Butterfly Punch, Sponge Daubers, Aqua Painter, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Color Spritzer Tool,  ½” Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon, Antique, Brad, Pearls, SU!

Thanks again for visiting- I hope you have fun and find your "sanity" this week- God Bless!

wow, Julie...this card is amazing! I love all of the little details you added to make it such a gorgeous creation! While I am thinking it's maybe not so much "CAS" as it is incredible and spectacular, it is certainly a beautiful work of art and I am so glad that I noticed it in the SUO uploads on SCS. WOW is about all I can think of it describe it!
