HUG – Outlawz CAS Challenge – CAS0717

First, I must tell you that the base on this card is Navy Blue, but for some reason (couldn’t possibly be my poor photographic skills) looks black in all 23 shots. I was working on this over-sized card for a gentleman who wanted to give his wife a card that could sit on her desk like a framed picture. I wanted to play in the Outlawz CAS challenge and I knew I couldn’t do both and finish the other cards I am working on for other challenges. As it turned out, his color palette (wedgewood blue, powder blue, red and white) fit perfectly with the CAS challenge: Something Old: The Bouquet Stamp (12 years old; paper from my stash); Something New: Spellbinders’ Fleur De Lis Rectangles Die (arrived the day I started this card); Something Blue: The Card Base – Navy Blue and the Powder Blue Face Panel.  And, although not required for the challenge, I added something borrowed: The Sentiment: borrowed from my grandson’s packet of jellies. I could not for the life of me figure out how to make Red a major color component or where to put a sentiment on this card. That red jellie solved both problems. To meet his requirement that the card sit on her desk like a framed picture, I cut a piece of card stock 2/3 the size of the base, scored it at 1 inch, folded at the score and adhered it to the back of the card with Scor-Tape and Crafty Power Tape…worked like a charm.

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
