I love making Clean And Simple cards! I used the new Scripty Word Die Set, the Flourishes clear stamp set, and some Black Gumdrops. You may think that you can’t add texture to CAS cards, but you can using the Flourishes set just around the edges of your panel. This still leaves lots of white space, but helps your eye travel around the card.
You may also think that you can’t use embellishments on CAS card, but our fabulous Gumdrops are the perfect finishing touch – they add just a little dimension and you can use several of them and not overwhelm the card.
I hope this inspires you to create some CAS masterpieces! Thanks for stopping by! ~Maureen
I consider my own card making style to be fairly CAS (clean and simple)… I like my cards to have clean lines, one major focal point, and I do very little embellishing.
I used the new Bitty Bugs set today. These tiny bugs are a perfect focal point for a CAS card with a lot of white space.
For a long time I thought CAS meant one layer and flat. It doesn’t have to be that way though… you can add simple details while still keeping a clean design.
Here, I popped up the spider’s body to add a little dimension, and to give room to tuck the “web” behind it. I also drew in thin black lines on each panel… it adds a bit of interest without being too bold to take away from the design.
I hope you are getting lots of inspiration for your CAS card making!
Stay tuned in here each Tuesday for more CAS ideas!
