The challenge this week at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog is CAS, Clean and Simple. This is harder than it seems...to make a beautiful card, but make it CAS.
I like CAS cards a lot but I have a big problem making them. So, while you look at my blog and see some of my fancy cards, know that this card took me longer to make than one of those "fancy" cards and feel free to shake your head in disbelief. But, if you are like me and CAS cards are a challenge, nod your head so I know I'm not alone.
I dry embossed the top section of the white paper. For the flowers, I took one single stamp by Hero Arts. I used Stampin Up Ink and Stamped the Red on the flower section and the green on the stems. Then I would go along the page and stamp 3 times before re-inking. The card is a three generation card. One generation is the brightest ink, the middle color is the second stamping and the lightest is the third stamping. It almost looks like different color pinks, doesn't it? Then I mounted that sheet on red paper the length of my card and then stamped "Just for You" in the bottom corner.
This is my CAS card...and I prefer it to call it Clean and Sweet!
