AECP - Clean & Simple Boutique Cards
Hello!! So anyone that knows me, knows that CAS (Clean and Simple) cards are a challenge for me. When I think of CAS cards, I think of more white space (or colored space if using colored cardstock) and I always want to add more! This class got my creative juices flowing and I have been wanting to use the Berry Branch stamp that I received as a free gift with a order earlier this year, so I thought it was the perfect time to play with it. I also bought the coordinating die when I got this free stamp, so I wanted to use that too. One of the looks I love is a simple wreath, and the Berry Branch was perfect for a wreath!
First, on 110lb white cardstock, I stamped out eight Berry Branches with black Memento ink and cut them out with the coordinating die. For the color scheme, I wanted to do rainbow colors, so I colored each branch a different color of the rainbow using Copic markers. I then cut out Hugs die in white 110lb cardstock and the shadow in vellum. I then used two shades of purple Copics and colored the Hugs sentiment in a gradient style.
I then cut a piece of white cardstock measured 3.5"x4.75" and splattered it with purple Distress Mica Spray. I then arranged the Berry Branches the way I wanted them to be, and then took a piece of Press N Seal and laid it on top of the branches to keep them in the arrangement I wanted them to be. I then flipped it over and added foam tape to the back of the branches, then flipped it back over and placed it onto the splattered card panel and peeled off the Press N Seal. I then glued the Hugs die onto the vellum shadow and then popped it in the middle of the wreath with foam tape. I then popped the card panel onto a white card base with foam tape, and them added some teal pearl embellishments to complete the look.
I think this card looks very CAS and very beautiful. It has the right amout of color and still has that simple look!
I hope you have a great day and I will see you soon with another project!
