Way To Go- CAS for Three Challenges!
I decided to create another Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the CASology Theme-Flower along with the CCMC304 Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge and a fairly loose interpretation of the CTS77 CAS(E) This Sketch! Challenge.
This card is CAS to me (compared to my normal style) but may have a few too many elements to qualify for the CAS Challenges- even so, I had fun making it!!
If you have not had time to visit any of the above sites, I hope that you will do so- truly great inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Sporadically ink the Chevron background using Basic Gray Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Sahara Sand and Whisper White cardstock. Trim both panels and mount the Sahara Sand background onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and add to the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the sentiment from Bravo using Basic Gray onto the Whisper White background panel, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock. Adhere to the Sahara Sand background (I darkened the sentiment using a Basic Gray Stampin’ Write marker and added a few shadows using the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker).
Stamp the flowers from Flower Shop using Basic Gray Classic Ink onto Soft Sky cardstock and punch out using the Pansy Punch. Use the Soft Sky Stampin’ Write marker to darken the petals and add the Kraft corduroy button brads to the center (buttons retired years ago and seemed to match the Sahara Sand better than our current Crumb Cake).
Punch the leaves out using the Bird Builder Punch from Basic Gray cardstock and add the leaves and flowers to the front of the card.
Sporadically add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.
