Thank You- Another CAS Card
I wanted to create a quick card and decided to use the inspiration from Pals Paper Arts PPA95 CAS- Elements of Style- Brads along with the Splitcoast Stampers CAS117 Sandy and Baby Blue Chocolates Challenge (remember CAS means Clean and Simple) :-)
The Design Team samples and entries at Pals PaperArts are truly inspirational as well as the Splitcoast CAS117 gallery.
To create this card:
Using a brayer with Early Espresso ink apply ink to the flat side of the Vintage Wallpaper EF. Insert a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock into the folder and emboss with the Big Shot.
Use the Big Shot with the Top Note Die to cut a piece of Whisper White and Early Espresso (trim the Whisper White layer along the perforated edge.
Mask the lower third of the Whisper White Top Note layer. Stamp the floral image from the Hostess Level II set, Fast and Fabulous, with Early Espresso ink and color the flowers with a Baja Breeze SU! Marker. Cut a mask from a sticky note to mask the flowers and stamp the En Francais background stamp in Early Espresso over the image.
Remove the mask and stamp the Medallion background stamp with Crumb Cake ink over the images. Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso and mount the Top Note layer onto the Early Espresso layer. Adhere the entire focal image onto the card front and lightly spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint spray (mixed with 70% alcohol).
Use 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon to create a double bow and anchor the center with an Antique Brad. Attach to the card front with a Pop-Up Glue Dot.
