Today I've got a CAS card to show you...
I really struggle with CAS cards, so hopefully I've done an OK job with it.
I've looked around as I felt I needed some CAS guidelines for me to follow, as I usually over-embellish my cards, so I summarize these little rules:
keep it simple (not a lot of embellishments, BUT a button, a flower a bit of ribbon is OK!)
leave part of the card blank (it still can be covered with paper, but nothing on top)
have a main focus/focus point on the card (this could be an image, or if not using image, the sentiment or a few embellishements, but clustered on one part of the card...)
for all of you out there who are good at CAS cards, please let me know in the comments if there is anything else I should take into consideration.... Thanks!!!
So, on to my card....
I used a 7x5 pink card base.
I left the top of the card blank and put a piece of patterned paper at the bottom. The paper is from
GCD studios Material Girls collection.
I cie-cut an scallop circle with my Sizzix Scallop circle nesting dies and embossed it with my hearts embossing folder from Tri-boss.
The image and sentiment is called Birdbrain conversation Hearts from "From the Heart". I got it last week and I couldn't wait to use it. It's so much fun!
I coloured the image with my Promarkers.
I used: Mustard, Buttercup, Antique Pink, Blossom, Leaf Green, Poppy, Pink Mittens, and Pink Carnation and Cool Grey 4 for the red shadowing.
I wanted to make the card mainly in
Pink, Red and White.
I then fussy cut the image and mounted it on top of the embossed circle with foam pads.
I also used:
"A True love story" washi tape from local shop.
button and ribbon are from my stash (local shops)
I hope you like my "Tweety" CAS card...
