There a few challenges out there that are looking for a CAS style of card. CAS (Clean and Simple) is very hard for me to do. I always want to add a little bit more, especially texture. This time I kept the card very clean.
Inspired by the following challenges. Subject / Style: The Paper Players (#546), Color: Color Throw Down (#647) and working with the diagonal row from Tic Tac Toe (#118) Single Layer, Free Square (CAS) and Sentiment.
Here is what I created:
- Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
- Background Single Layer: (4” x 5¼”) Very Vanilla cardstock.
- The Berry Branch from the Sketched in Nature stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and again in Crumb Cake ink. The image was heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder using the Clear Color Embossed technique.
- The image was colored with a variety of Stampin’ Blends. Berries – Polished Pink and Poppy Parade, Leaves – Mossy Meadow and Old Olive and Branches – Crumb Cake.
- Glossy Glue was added to the Berries using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. The wet glue dots blended the Polished Pink and Poppy Parade colors somewhat.
- The sentiment, Anything is Possible, from the Hand Penned Petals stamp set was added using Mossy Meadow ink.
And that was that. A single layer of cardstock, stamped and colored, added to a matching card base. Clean and simple.
Anything is possible…see how the cut stem did not stop the plant from thriving!
