You Are One of A Kind- Two CAS Challenges in One!!
Hi Again Stampers!!
I decided to participate in a few more challenges this weekend- the CAS Colours and Sketches #70 along with the CASology #90- Note.
I struggle with the CAS (Clean and Simple) Sytle and this may not be CAS enough for the challenges, but for me, it is clean and simple :-) Again, I hope you will have a chance to stop by to visit all of the challenge sites to see the wonderful Design Team samples and entries!
To create this card:
Since Basic Black was one of the challenge colors, I decided to use My Digital Studio (MDS) to print out the background, the oval and sentiment (all pieces were re-sized before saving and printing).
Color the background using Stampin’ Write Markers in Basic Gray and Smoky Slate, trim and mount onto Basic Black cardstock. Add the punched/crimped border pieces of Basic Black and Whisper White along the bottom and adhere the 5/8” retired Basic Black Satin double ribbon bow and strip at the top.
Punch out the sentiment using the XL Oval Punch and adhere to two ovals punched with the same punch (overlap the two black ovals to create a frame behind the sentiment). Add the sentiment to the ribbon strip along the top of the panel and adhere a small Pearl to the little flower at the bottom.
Alternate the strips of the retired Night and Day Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and adhere the focal image panel to the pieced DSP panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere another piece of the Night and Day DSP to the Basic Black card base and add the entire panel to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp Sets: Notably Ornate, One of A Kind, Presto Patterns Overlay (MDS versions)
Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Basic Gray, Smoky Slate
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, retired Night and Day DSP
Accessories: XL Oval Punch, retired 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pearl, EK Success Border Punch (non SU!)
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope all of you have a great week!
