CAS Birthday Card
My talented Blogger friend, Bobby of Bits and Pieces, is fabulous at clean and simple cards and I'm always thinking that I should make more of them. I've decided that I want to try to improve in this area and figure there's no better way than to jump right into a challenge! This week at CAS-ology, the cue word is distress. I've made this card for the challenge.
I started by measuring a Stampin' Up frame and creating an offset of the oval size for my Silhouette. I also designed the file to cut out the middle portion of the oval in order to end up with a window. I then cut out the oval and embossed it. On watercolour paper, I used Stampin' Up stamps for the flowers and coloured them with Zig markers. I cut the image in order to fit behind the embossed window frame.
For the sentiment, I used a stamp from My Craft Spot and stamped it on a banner cut with a My Craft Spot die. I then embossed it with a distressed Tim Holtz brick wall folder.
Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back tomorrow with an Easter card.
