About Me

I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

CAS Card

I wanted to do a CAS card, so I used a chocolate brown card base, cut and scored to a standard sized card. I cut some pale yellow patterned paper (WalMart) to 3.75 x 5 inches. I took my flower stamp (Inkadinkado) and stamped it in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I really wanted the flower to be the focal point of the card, so I used Mustard Seed Distress Ink to stamp the sentiment (Hero Arts). To make the card even softer, I rounded all the corners of the card base and patterned paper. I used some yellow ribbon (Michaels), wrapped it around the patterned paper, and tied a knot. Then I adhered the patterned paper to the card base. To finish the card, I added 5 yellow gems.
