Tuesday’s Tip ~ Two Cards From CAS to “All Dressed Up”

:”

Welcome back stamp lovers!

Today I am here to share a Clean and Simple (CAS) card with all of you but I decided to also share tips on dressing up a card with added layers of detail.

Here is my CAS simple card design. Just a simple strip of double sided designer series paper. I used both sides to alternate the designs to really show off this beautiful paper. Then a simple strip of card stock, one stitched die cut and a single stamped sentiment. this gives such a sleek look and is quite striking. But what if we dress it up a little using this week’s Needlepoint Nook Suite of products…

As you can see I used everything the first card had plus more. The white space has been embossed using the stitched die from the bundle. The floral stamps have been stamped and die cut out using the coordinating dies. The stitched circle that the sentiment was stamped on also has a second scalloped layer. Then a few die cut leaves were used, also from the same bundle….. and POW!!!! A multilayered look with a lot of interest and dimension. (Quick tip…. Make sure to order Dimensionals in both the regular size as well as the mini’s. I will link these at the end of this post.) These really help with popping up some of the flowers to add even more to that dimensional look. Here is a close up photo…

I hope you have enjoyed this and feel inspired. The CAS card has sleek lines and is quite striking due to its extra white space and the ‘dressed up’ card has dimension and extra interest. Both designs will appeal to a wide variety of people. Now lets see a CAS & ‘Dressed Up” card that you have designed. CLICK HERE to head on over to my VIP Customer group on Facebook.
