Over at Addicted to CAS the challenge theme right now is SUN. I had an idea right when I saw this. I am trying to get better at making CAS cards. Especially single layer cards. I always struggle when trying to make single layer cards. I just stare at it and think….ooohh it so needs at least one layer! But the idea I had for this card seemed like a perfect fit and I really liked it when it was finished. I never had the urge to add layers. So check it out and let me know what you think!
Here is my challenge entry:
And here is a blue version:
I did the blue version because I realized I also have a number of blue inks that might transition well. I think I might actually like the blue one better! But yellow certainly matches the SUN theme more ;-). I also did not have the perfect ribbon for my yellow card but I still think it looks nice, just a little thicker than I would have wanted.
This card could not have been much more simple to make. Once stamp set. 5 ink colors, one paper color and some ribbon. You could easily recreate it with lots of different stamps. I do really like how the chevron looks though.
Hope everyone has a great week! I needed the get away of my paper crafting today. I am so glad I have it. 🙂
