Two Birds

Hello dear blog friends,

Usually I do shabby/vintage designs but change is sometimes as good as a holiday, so I did another CAS card today. For the 365 Cards Challenge I used brown, birds and branches to do the challenge of three B’s. The CAS[E] This Sketch  this week is another beautiful design. For my card I flipped the sketch to the right to suit the stamp. I chose a Crafty Individuals stamp to do a masculine card, a theme I always neglected. It started as a one layer card but after a little bit of thinking I decided to pop a part of the image with a little tag to give a bit of dimension. This was such a quick card I think I will duplicate a few more in various colours and with different sentiments to keep at hand in case of emergency occasions.

Challenges:

 Here is my take on the challenges:

 A close up of the pop-up tag:

Project details:

  • Crafty Individuals stamp CI-234
  • JustRite sentiment stamp “Heart to Heart set”
  • Ivory cardstock
  • Tim Holtz distress inks “Walnut Stain” and “Vintage Photo”
  • Sizzix die “Tags, Rounded” 657568
  • Wax cord

Hope you like my CAS card. Thanks for visiting today, I appreciate your time so much. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    I love how you popped the tag up but the image runs off onto the card base! So glad you played along in this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch!

    Great card Amelia. I think all card makers shy away from masculine cards – but this is a great idea. Love it.
