Clean and Simple Roses- Three Challenges in One!


Hi Again, Stampers! 

I decided to create a CAS Card using this week’s CQC189 ColourQ Colors and the CAS(E) This SketchChallenge #28 along with the CASOLOGY Theme #44 Bloom.

If you have the time to check out all of the challenge sites, please do so- there is so much inspiration from their Design Teams as well as all of the other entries


I know that many of you may not think this card is simple, but trust me it is :-) 

Also, not sure if I have too many layers to qualify for the CAS Challenges, but here it is…



To create this very easy CAS card:

Use the Big Shot™ with the Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White- trim down to 3 ¾” W x 5” H and set aside the trimmed pieces.

Create the rolled flowers from Calypso Coral, Ruby Red and Whisper White cardstock using the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle punch and the spiral cut method (see tutorial here). 

Attach the embossed Whisper White background to Basic Black and Certainly Celery and mount onto Basic Black for the final frame.

Add the strip of Basic Black cardstock (from my scraps) and a piece of the trimmed embossed paper from the first step.

Punch the leaves from Certainly Celery cardstock using the Bird Builder Punch and add to the card front and adhere the rolled flowers along with the Pearls.

Add the sentiment to finish off the card.  See how simple.. and CAS to me! :-)

­Stamp Sets: Petite Pairs

Ink:  Basic Black

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Certainly Celery, retired Ruby Red
Accessories:  Big Shot™,  Argyle Textured Impressions™ Embossing  Folder, Punches- 1 ¼” Scallop Circle, 1 3/8” Circle, Bird Builder, Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by and if you have the time, let me know if you like this card – your comments mean so much to me!  

I hope you all of you have a wonderful weekend!  I have a "date" with approx. 20 young ladies for the Mother/Daughter brunch this morning and I am looking forward to helping them make a cute little flower pot easel card (they range in ages 3 to 12)- we will have so much fun!) :-)
