CAS Love You- Second Try for Two Challenges :-)

Hi Stampers!

I am in awe of stampers that can create Clean and Simple (CAS) cards and though they are not my natural style, I keep trying:-).   I love the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge site and decided to try to create a card for the CTS61 Sketch using the FabFri34 Color Challenge.   

I actually ended up making two different cards- I failed to create a CAS card on the first try (since I kept adding layers) and it became a Clean and Layered card versus Clean and Simple….so I had to try again, thus this second card :-)
If you have not checked out either challenge site yet, I hope you have the time to check them out- both have terrific Design Team samples as well as the other entries!

To create the Clean and Simple (CAS) card:

Use the Big Shot™ with Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  

Layer a piece of the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper (from the Fresh Prints Stack) to the embossed background, trim and mount the entire panel onto a piece of Real Red cardstock and again onto the Whisper White card base (I popped this layer up with Stampin’ Dimensionals®).

Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Real Red Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, punch out using the Word Window Punch and cut the banner using the Hexagon Punch. 

Layer all three sentiment banners onto a strip of Real Red cardstock, cut the banner on the end with the Hexagon Punch and round the other end by inserting the strip into the Word Window Punch and punch only the inserted end.  Adhere to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the Rhinestones between the sentiments to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Express Yourself

Ink: Real Red

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Fresh Prints DSP Stack

Accessories: Big Shot™, Stylish Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Punches- Hexagon and Word Window Punch, Rhinestones

I will post my first try which is more of a "Clean and Layered" card later this evening…Thanks for stopping by :-)

I like the bold pattern as your diagonal layer and the little sentiment arrows are cute...very smart to punch them with the word window and hexie punches! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
