10 Minute CAS Card- Color Challenge plus a Sketch!
Hi again Stampers!
I wanted to participate in a few challenges and chose to create a card using this week's CTS#14 CAS(E) this Sketch! and the colors from this week's CCMC238 Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. This is the first time I have been able to participate at the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog and if you have not visited either one of these sites yet, take a few minutes to check them out!! Great ideas and so much inspiration!!
Clean and Simple (CAS) cards are a bit more difficult for me- not sure why because they should be simple, right? They are quick to assemble once I decide on the design, but I always have to restrain myself from "overworking" them with sponging, distressing and embellishments :-) I truly admire those who are so creative with the CAS style :-)
This card only took ten minutes to create since I was able to incorporate a few scraps that were already embossed- love being able to pull a card together using scraps :-)
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Elegant Lines Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock and adhere this to a piece of Island Indigo.
Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White with Island Indigo Classic Ink and adhere to the embossed Island Indigo strip (using the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder).
Ink the smooth side of the interior the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder with Calypso Coral Classic Ink and emboss a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. Punch out the flower using the Blossom Punch and add the stamped center created from the medium medallion stamp in Lacy & Lovely.
Add the Lucky Limeade leaves and pearl center to the flower to finish off the card.
