CCEE1303 - CAS Sympathy Card

Joanne asked the CCEE Stampers to make a CAS sympathy card this week.  When I think CAS, I think:  one layer/minimal imaging/lots of white space.  I think I achieved that with my card.


To make my card I first embossed a Labels Five shape into the center of the card.  Then I stamped the image inside the die and sponged around the edges.  It's hard to see the embossed frame, but you can definitely see the sponging.  I used two different stamp sets from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, on my card:  Pussy Willows and Oopsy Daisy.

If you'd like to try your hand at a CAS Sympathy card, join us over on the CCEE Blog and link your card up at the end of the post.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Pussy Willows, Oopsy Daisy
Paper:  MFP Premium Heavy White
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Distress Weathered Wood
Accessories:  Labels Five, Sponge applicator, Copic markers

Lois, this card is beautiful! I love the shadowing inside the nestie, and that bird from MFP is still oone of my favorites. Great job, my friend.

Lovely and beautiful, Lois! I love how you used the Nestie shape on this for your one-layer card and the soft sponging is perfect.

Lois, that is just so sweet. There are some really gorgeous CAS cards this week but you know me and birds - I think this has to be my favourite for that sweet little chickadee and your lovely sponging. I really like dry-embossed frames for adding a little something extra to one-layer cards.

It's a beautiful CAS card, Lois. I do love that sentiment for sympathy cards. The image is beautifully done.
