Saturday

We go together like... CAS card - DIY Tutorial!

Hey Peeps,
I hope you all are doing great!!

Today I am here with my most recent inspiration for Craftyscrappers Blog and new contest: CAS cards!

Yes, the brand new challenge is to make CAS cards. The acronym CAS stands for Clean And Simple. 
The parameters are:

  • One focal point
  • Lots of white (or open) space
  • Minimal layers and embellishments


Sounds interesting? Its more fun to make it. I have made a quick & simple card for the inspiration keeping the center of focus as the Craftyscrappers stamps. The stamp set used is: We Go Together.

The other items used are:
1. Brown thick cardstock for the base
2. Green colored cardstock for the front layer
3. We go together stamp set
4. Zing sparkle black embossing powder
5. Memento ink of your favorite color for sentiments - I used the pink one
6. Adhesives, versamark watermark stamp pad, ruler, cutter, scissors


Let's get started:
1. Let us create the top layer first. Take the green card stock cut into the size slightly lesser than that of your card size.
2. Pick out the favorite combo - I used Tea & biscuit for it.
3. Apply versamark ink and stamp in the center of the card.
4. Sprinkle the the embossing powder to make the perfect cover of it. Remove the excess of it and put it back in the bottle. You can use dry brush also to remove the excess powder.
5. Heat emboss it. I don't have heating gun, so I have used inverted iron technique to emboss it :D Thank god the paper didn't turn black ;)
6. The main image is ready. Now, stamp the supporting sentiment on the card. I did: We go together like Tea & Biscuit
How cute... no?

The final one: Paste the top layer on the base layer and you are done... Tadaaa!
