World of Dreams

CAS279Two of my very favorite sets in one card!  What could be better than that?

The CAS challenge is to make a sunset.  As soon as I saw that I thought that pairing together Work of Art and World of Dreams would make a perfect sunset scene.  This was one of those cards that it is taking me longer to put together a post on it then it did for me to make it!

Here’s the details –

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.  Stamp swish with Tangelo Twist, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay
  • Stamp leafy image and greeting using Memento Black.
  • Cut out using Circle Framelit
  • Add leftover 3 5/8 x 3 5/8 piece to card front using dimensionals
  • Layer on 2 1/2″ Basic Black Circle and add to card front using double layer of dimensionals

Yep…that really is all there is to it!
