My self-challenge, for the month of October, is to create only CAS cards. I am doing this because CAS is a difficult style for me. Although not nearly as bad as Shabby Chic (which is almost impossible for me to pull off). This was a really easy card. And I had fun pulling it together.
Card size: 6″x71/4″ (I tend to prefer large cards) Cut two 81/2″ x 11″ sheets of Neenah Solar White Linen Cardstock to 6″. Sored one sheet 1/2″ from the top and apply ne strip of Crafty Power Tape. Marry the two 6″ sheets and cut them to a length of 71/4″. Cover the inside seam with corresponding text weight paper. Supplies: Two 81/2″x11″ sheets of Neenah Solar White Linen Card Stock; Cuttlebug Oriental Weave Embossing Folder (cut scrap card stock to 6″ long by 2″wide and emboss with “No More Shim” embossing pad or a use piece of folded cardstock as a shim. I used the Sizzix Big Shot Pro, but I get the same result when I use my Epic or my Big Shot.) Spellbinders’ Anemone Flower Topper (middle and small dies). Sentiment: Just Rite Stampers Garden Fairy Seed Collection. Scrap Wallpaper, black half pearl, and a miscellaneous button from a suit I don’t even remember. I cleaned out my closet and found about thirty of those little button bags and another twenty in a shoe box I used to store them. I had forgotten about that as well! :D)
Construction: Use Scor-pal to create the frame. Adhere the embossed strip to the bottom of the card base and cover the seam with a 1/8″ strip of design paper. Cut the flowers from coordinating design papers, attach buttons, pearls (or brads) mount on card with foam tape or glue dots! Stamp sentiment and….Voila!! C-YA!
