CAS Wednesday!


Hi everyone! I really admire the clean and simple technique.  Those paper artists that truly excel in this area make it look elegant, beautiful and oh so simple.  I thought I would give it a try and create my version of a CAS card. This is also the 'What's Up Wednesday' post over at The Aviary so please check it out!


Turns out this technique is super hard for me.  I made 4 different fronts for this card!  My favorite was the first I created but I kept thinking it was too simple so I kept right on trying. In the end, I used the very first one :) However, I stared and stared at this card thinking I needed to layer more stamps, more paper, more embellishments and had to keep reminding myself that the beauty of these cards is in their simplicity.  I even went to bed and woke up the next day wondering about this card and how I should/could change it!  But as I looked at it again, I realized how I quite liked it and what better way to show off the sweet images in the 'Marcel' stamp set.


A picture of the inside of the card which again is very clean and simple with a printed sentiment. The CAS technique is definitely something I am going to work on and hopefully someday I will be able to whip up one of these cards in less time than a super embellished one!
