Oh…I’m SOOOOOO excited! I tried out for the CAS (clean and simple) design team over on SCS and this time I made it! I tried out for this a couple times before and am so happy to have made it this time! Over the next three days I’m going to share the cards I made for the DT search.
The theme for the first challenge was ‘back to nature’ and it needed to be an ‘encouragement’ card. I was looking through my ‘stuff’ to try to figure out what I wanted to use and, of course, this set was sitting on the top of my desk and I thought the greeting was a perfect ‘encouragement’ greeting. I wanted to make it bright and fun along with being encouraging so this is what I ended up with.
The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 Whisper White. I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting using Basic Black and Melon Mambo. I added this to the card front using dimensionals. Next I made the ‘clouds’ using my Cupcake Builder punch and ran them through the Polka Dotted embossing folder before adding to the card front. I stamped the kites in Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight, added the kite ‘strings’ stamped in Basic Grey (and yes…I was crazy enough to cut those puppies out!) and added to the card using dimensionals. Finally I punched out the hearts from the Silver Glimmer using the smallest heart in the 3 Heart Punch and added to the kites to finish it off.
So…that was my card for round 1. I do like this little set…alot of fun!
