CAS02 - One Button Will Do!

CAS has become very popular and we're so excited! We even have a design team every season. Come check us out! This week we would like you to use one button on your card.

What is CAS?
The idea of CAS is to keep it Clean and Simple.

Definition: A clean and simple card has limited layers and sometimes just a card base. It leaves a lot of "open space". It uses little or no embellishments. Any techniques should be the old standard everyday kind like sponging, distressing and piercing. Limit the number of tools you use. Any colored images should be small and quick. Don't go overboard on tons of punches and embossing. CAS cards should be easy and quick.

Here's my 1st card for CAS02 - Checker Flower

Stamps: flower - DRS Designs
Colors: regal rose, pretty in pink, so saffron, bashful blue, certainly celery
Accessories: button MS butterfly punch, celery marker


Here's my second button card for the CAS challenge - You're Fabulous!

Stamps: It's Beautiful wheel, Absolutely Fabulous
Colors: riding hood red, black, white
Accessories: ribbon, button, stickles
