may wonder, Can she make it simple? A card with no stitching, no
patterned paper and few embellishments?
Surprisingly, she can :)
must admit, when I was new to blogland I had no idea what a CAS
challenge was looking for. I actually had to google it up to find out
the mysterious code stands for "clean and simple" :) Turns
out I did make easy cards now and then, but at least when I
discovered pickpoint, those cards seemed to vanish from my crafting
though I tend not to make cards that are overloaded with flowers, bows
and glitter, there are so many the things a card should have... A
couple of pearls here, a couple of flowers there, a ribbon or a lace, a punched butterfly - and in no time I'm far from CAS.
evening I decided to give it a try anyway, working with the latest sketch of freshly made sketches.
I picked a white paper with a tiny floral
pattern as my main focus, and combined it with a blue background
paper. For the bar that goes through the middle of the card, I used
punched flowers with pearls. As an even line would be too rigid for
the soft blossoms, I arranged them in a soft wave-like line.
Then, I glued it all together, and the card was done. Pretty quickly in comparison to my usual crafting projects. Pretty CAS in comparison to what I usually do.
trace of blue matches my last lavender faggot, which I
decorated with a heart-shaped charm that says "made with love".
(How comes I miss the lavender season every year?)
above all, it matches fluffy white clouds in the blue sky. What a
pity to watch them from underneath!
