Today I had this 'ah ha' moment because I needed two cards pronto and I was actually contemplating on buying them as my craft mojo had taken a hike ... yikes! ... imagine that with $$$$ of supplies in my very own craft room. You see, I'm off on a little holiday with my mum tomorrow and time is precious, so I decided to just make them very clean, simple, quick and easy and guess what? ... I actually like them.
The first one was a request from my daughter; a birthday card for a friend. It had to have a tree stamp or something 'naturey' and have a copper 'element' on it. I did have some copper coloured paper in my stash so I stamped the cute little tree from Happy Scenes on it, cut it out with a circle punch, glued it on a doily and then onto some black card stock cut from the scallop circle die. I cut a large white circle for the back so there was room for a message and made it into a large tag to attach to the present. Laura was pleased with how it turned out.
The second one was super easy. I just love the simplicity of a black stamped image on plain Kraft card stock. This one's for my brother's birthday. His obsession is restoring wooden vintage caravans so I side-tracked from all things, SU to purchase a Darkroom Door stamp set called Carved Caravans and this is the first time I have inked up one of the images.
I must remember to make more CAS cards to have in my stash!
Thanks for stopping by,
