Simply Pretty

Hello Everyone,

For today I am going to enter in the Less is More sketch challenge.  CAS cards as easy as they MAY seem are very difficult to create.. I have been working on CAS cards throughout the year.. Well here it is I hope you like it...

Sentiment pops off the white paper.
I guess I should never underestimate how such
pretty paper can be so pretty and detailed and still remain CAS.

So I was looking through all my PP the other day and discovered this gem... I completely forgot I bought it but I am so glad we were reintroduced. It is very graphic and somewhat detailed in its design but I think it does work as a CAS card. Why? The pattern is big and bold with minimal colors. I just love the way this turned out..

Entering Challenge: Less is More
Week 268; Sketch 16
How to:

  1. Found amazing PP from my stash..
  2. Cut and scored my CS to an A2 size card base.
  3. Cut PP at an angle then adhered it to the card base.
  4. Die cut 'birthday' sentiment then adhered it to the card base.
That was it.. Again easy peasy but actually very difficult keeping it so simple.. Late night again, yes Petra it is turning into a habit, so I should turn it in for the night.. One more post and I am seeing the inside of my eyelids. If you could leave a comment and let me know am I headed in the right direction with CAS design? Or should I go back to the drawing board.. Thank you for stopping by and we will see you sooner then later. 

All the best,

LOVE it! The small amount of the bold pattern really looks fabulous

It is indeed lush paper and, aside from the strong sentiment, needs nothing else at all - FAB
