CAS93 - Simple is Best

Whew! We finally had a day with a few minutes of sun, so I was able to snap some card pics. This one is for the Clean and Simple challenge over on Splitcoaststampers; it's a sketch challenge this week. I pared the sketch down to the bare bones - rotated it 90 degrees, left out the layer, and used the sentiment as the vertical element. 

The first thing that popped into my head was a dangling ornament, so I cut a 3 1/2" shape with my Slice, and added a center that I cut and embossed with a Nestie. Stamped the sentiment, adhered the ornament with foam dimensionals, and rounded the bottom corners - easily a 10-minute card (at best). I thought about adding something, maybe a few rhinestones, but then I decided simple was best. Yep, this is definitely putting me in the holiday spirit!

Card Supplies:
Stamp: Studio G; Ink: Ink It Up! pigment; Patterned Paper: DCWV; Accessories: Making Memories Slice / Fa La La design card, Cuttlebug / circle Nestabilities, corner rounder punch, foam dimensionals


  1. Your CAS card is amazing, great detail to emboss the circle, it really makes for a wonderful card.

  2. I really like the beautiful simplicity of your card. There's even detail added in the embossed circle. Lovely!

  3. This is awesome! Love all of your work, actually. So clean, so hip. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
