CASC&S - Sketch ....

....  Morning! This month is simply flying by! I've come to the end of my month as Guest Designer at CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#224, and I really have to say thanks to the Team - I've had such fun with all colours and the sketches. So this week we have a sketch to inspire us, and I've made a simple floral card:

Stamps: Altenew - Spring Daisy, Painted Butterflies
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - So Saffron, Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz
Dies: Altenew - Spring Daisy
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Kaisercraft DP - Bombay Sunset




I got some lovely new design papers at the weekend. In the pad was this lovely gold embossed piece of paper - perfect for my card. I cut a strip and adhered it flat to the card. The flower and leaf are multi-step images from Altenew. I think that Altenew makes the most amazing multi-step flower sets. The first layer was stamped with Versamark, and heat embossed with gold powder. I added colour for the second and third layers with SU inks. The flower was cut out with the matching die. I created the leaf in the same way, although this was fussy cut as there's no die for this leaf. Before attaching the flower and leaf, I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI - I was able to ensure that it was perfectly straight and in the right place for adding the flower. The leaf was glued flat to the card and I used dimensional tape on the flower. For the inside I used up the rest of the design paper for the mat layer and on the white panel added another flower and a greeting.

I'm submitting this card to AAA Cards - AAA#90 where they want to see embossing - here I've got gold embossing as well as the lovely embossed paper. Do visit CAS Colours & Sketches to see more inspirational cards from the rest of the Design Team.

I hope you have a super day - mine will be spent ironing and doing a TV catchup - it makes the ironing go quicker!! That's all for now. See you soon.
