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!

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!
