Pink CAS

Hi everyone,


Clean and simple (CAS) cards are always a challenge for me as I automatically go for layers.  So I wanted to try the current challenge at Less is More which is to create a one layer card with
3 stamps.


Yes this was definately a challenge for me. I had lots of ideas but nothing was working and I nearly gave up.  In the end I just started to try out different things to see what worked.


In the end I settled on Very Vanilla card stock and a monochromatic look in pink.  I have used Regal Rose, Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink for the inks.


I have used two stamp sets Word Play – love all the sentiments in this set and the Vintage Vogue stamp set which I have not used for a while.


I stamped the sentiment in Melon Mambo in the left hand corner of the card and then created a sort of border with the swirly flowery image from the Vintage Vogue set. This was stamped in Pretty in Pink.


I left a space near the end of the swirly border and stamped the smaller flower image in the space in Regal Rose ink.


Couldn’t resist adding some bling to the flower :)


Here is my card:







Stamp set: Word Play, Vintage Vogue

Card: Very Vanilla
Ink: Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo

Accessories:  Basic Rhinestones 



Happy that I managed to create something and I used the sentiment I wanted to use – bonus!
