Clean and Simple, Baby ....

I've learned that CAS has quickly become one of my very favorite types of cards. I love the crisp look and sharpness of a CAS. Interestingly, though, they aren't all that 'simple' to create. Regardless of how much I like that type of card, they still remain challenging for me to create.

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge for this week is to create a CAS card. Woohoo! Super fun!

The stamp sets used are Sentimental Flowers and .... get this .... For Our Men. :) Yep. The sentiment is from that set. I masked out the 'a' from "You're a special" sentiment in the set and just made it "You're special."

The ScorPal was used to create the scored line around the edge of the card, and a glassy glaze was used over the flower to give a shine and a bit more dimension.

Card Recipe:
stamps - For Our Men, Sentimental Flowers
paper - white, Deep Sea, black
ink - black
Copics - R20 (Sweet Cheeks), Y21 (Pineapple Twist), R22, Y26
accessories - Cricut, SCAL, Sentimental Flowers SVG, glass finish, pearls, ribbon (Sweet Cheeks), ScorPal, pop dots

This was a fun card to create, and I really like the crisp look of the final product.

I hope you have a beautiful 4th of July. Thank a military service person today ..... because they are why the country is free and why you are free. Oohrah to my precious US Marine son, Jared.

Oh, and have a great, big, beautiful tomorrow. :)



  1. Oh this is very pretty Shell! I love that you masked the a out! I agree that CAS are not that simple to do!!! LOL! Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us at Stampin Sisters in Christ!

  2. This is lovely, that wee focal point just stands out so nicely against the white, but you framed it with some lines from a scor pal. The black helps make the flower pop even more. Thank you for coming alongside Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week!
