A few more CAS styled cards . . .
Happy Sunday All!
I have a couple more CAS (clean & simple) cards to share with you this morning. I started them yesterday but didn't finish them until this morning. Your thoughts??
I saw a card of similar style over on Pinterest by designer Chrissie and used it as my inspiration. She has such a wonderful way with CAS design ... I could certainly learn a lot from her. I still struggle with NOT adding MORE. That 'less is more' saying just doesn't resonate with me most times ... lol.
For the Sue Wilson Petite Vinery and the Frantic Stamper Deepest Sympathy sentiment, I have used 4x6 panels of glossy white card stock along with alcohol inks (gosh haven't used them in years!) to achieve my colorful elements.
I've used shades of blue & green which would indicate this card would be used for a man but I actually think you could use it for either gender. What do you think? Can you see the shine on the leaves ... so pretty in real life!!
I have a second card to share today and this time I've made a 'slimline' card. They seem to be the rage in the crafting world right now and fit into a legal size envelope. My card base measures 8 5/8" x 7 1/4" ... scored at 3 5/8". I've used a scrap of design paper for my background panel and I've had this HUGS sentiment die cut and laying around for quite awhile so finally gave it a home. The only other thing I did to finish off this card was to add dots of Nuvo White Crystal drops to the centers of the flowers on the designer paper. Viola ... ready to write a note to a friend and get it in the mail.
Even though I'm not sure my craft shows will take place this Fall, I think I'll make up some of these slimline cards for my sale box. It's something a little different and since it doesn't require extra postage, it could be a good seller. I'm sure you'll be seeing more slimline cards coming from me in the near future.
Well there you have it!
Enjoy your day everyone and PLEASE stay safe/healthy!
