Hello everyone, today I have am finally getting around to enter two challenges that I have wanted to join in with for a while, but never had the time to do it.... although I think I might have joined in with one of them before! The first one is Waltzingmouse Challenge 137 where I have used the sketch and the other one is Less is More Week 5 where the theme is pastel colours.
For my first card I layerd three layers of matt white card with the top layer being embossed with an embossing folder from craft concepts called cottage floral. I then used a stamp from the Waltzingmouse Victorian Frippery set and some lilac ink to create the background. The sentiment is also from Waltzingmouse but it is from the fancy phrases set and I finished off with a row of bling.
I mounted the sentiment onto my card with some foam pads for a bit of dimension. I really loved how this card turned out and I'm starting to get the hang of CAS cards....so much so I made another one!!!
This card is made in exactly the same way as the one above, except I stamped the background with sage ink and I had some matching sage ribbon in my stash.
One more image from another angle! I really loved making these cards and I hope to do a lot more in the future. They are so quick but yet so effective..... it takes me longer to figure out what to do than to actually do it!!
