CAS Wish Big- Two Challenges in One!


Hi Again, Stampers! 

I decided to create another CAS Card for the CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge #23 and the Hand StampedSentiments HSSCC157 Color Challenge.  

Again, if you have the time, check out both sites for wonderful inspiration!!
                                                                                    To create this very quick, easy CAS card:

Use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the Diagonal Score Plate to score four lines onto Whisper White cardstock (for the diagonal lines on the sketch).

Using Island Indigo Classic Ink, stamp the sentiment at the same angle as the scoring.     Trim the scored, stamped  piece to 4” x 5 ¼” and layer onto the Whisper White card base.

Use the Blossom Punch to punch out a flower from Island Indigo cardstock-  emboss the flower using the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. 

Also, with the Big Shot™ and the Little Leaves Sizzlelits™ Die, cut two sets of leaves from Lucky Limeade cardstock.

Stamp the medallion image from Lacy and Lovely using Island Indigo Classic Ink onto Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Punch the image out with the 1” Circle punch and layer onto a 1 ¼” circle punched from Whisper White cardstock. 

Add the punched medallion center to the embossed flower,  mount the leaves and flower onto the card front to finish this quick, easy card!  

Stamp Sets: Lacy & Lovely, Short & Sweet (retired)

Ink:  Island Indigo

Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade

Accessories:  Big Shot™,  Lacy BrocadeTextured Impressions™ Embossing  Folder, Little Leaves Sizzlit™ Die, Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool™. Diagonal Score Plate, Blossom, 1” Circle and 1 ¼” Circle Punches

Thanks again for stopping by and if you have the time, let me know if you like this card (I struggle with the CAS style).      I hope you have a wonderful week!

Beautifully done, and I don't think you have trouble with CAS at all :) I never know when enough is enough. I love the scored lines with the sentiment running along side. Thanks for using the color challenge at HSS! Erika
