It's been a while since I played along with CASology - CAS#88 and Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#34, and, as luck would have it, they have the same theme LUCKY/LUCK. Did you see what I did there? Sorry! I've used the colours from CAS - Colours and Sketches - CASC&S#66. My best of luck card is for moving into a new home. I used the stitched rectangle to die cut a white panel and in the centre I embossed a smaller stitched rectangle. I adhered the white panel to a dark teal mat, leaving a very narrow border. I stamped the sentiment in dark teal. I stamped a couple of house keys onto white card, fussy cut them, tied them together with twine and adhered them to the card with dimensional tape. On the inside I have a mat layer of dark teal and on the white panel a simple greeting and another house key.
Yesterday morning I was checking through various challenges and saw, to my huge delight, that I'm the Featured Stamper at The Colour Throwdown with my very CAS birthday card - this one here:
I am thrilled to bits. I love the clean and simply style of card making and I try very hard to achieve good CAS cards, sometimes it works and sometimes not so much! But I did it with this one. I think you could have heard my happy dance around the world :)) I think taking the Clean & Simple 3 class has helped a lot!! That's all for now. See you soon.
