A Very CAS, Scrap-tastic Card!


Happy Saturday! Woo Hoo! Just love my Saturdays! Not loving the thought of going back to work on Monday - I've had way too much fun away from work!

Just posted a lil' card on the PTI Blog and couldn't resist posting it here too:

I have to confess, it's not really my style but I kinda like the clean, graphic look! I think my New Year's Resolution is gonna be to throw myself into the deep when it comes to cardmaking and just go with the flow!The longest part of this card was heating up the Clear EP LOL!

Anyways, the best part about this card is that it was made from scraps! Yup, just got rooting through my bag-o-scraps for a challenge posted by Nichole Heady entitled Scrap-tastic. I just love that I used no new stash in the making of this card!

Would you believe that I still have a couple of Christmas cards to share with y'all still too?! Promise to upload them soon, that is, if you're not kinda sick of seeing Christmas cards by now!

Catch ya later!

I REALLY love this one, so simple but so elegant. I can see a whole set of these as a gift set ...

Alison said...

Wow - less is definitely more!

I cant do this style at all, but you've nailed it here - so professional and elegant. I could see this as a great masculine card, and it would be fab for an super-elegant wedding card. Might case ya!

That is simply stunning - so easy on the eye!! One of my crafty resolutions this year is to try to make more pared down, less fussy cards - this sounds like the right challenge for that so might have a go myself!

I loved that post on Nicole's blog...I have tons of scraps and have a hard time throwing them out...but I'm getting better at remembering that new paper is always coming out. I keep my scraps in large freezer bags according to colour...but all the dp is just in a couple of different ones. I check them before cutting new paper. Love the idea of embossing a design...lovely :) And thanks for all the continuing hugs. I'm off next week still but have a good teacher on call (sub) going in :)

Alex said...

Love the clean and simple look of this card Aimes :)

Hope all's well with you.

Bye for now,

This card really hits the spot for me!

I adore the stark simplicity of this card - so many cardmakers insist on over- embellishing their cards and then, in my opinion, ruin them.

Well done for resisting the urge!

i love the simplicity in this card. but i could never do anything that simple yet still look amazing like this. perhaps i need more practice. =)

Maureen said...

congrats on the nod from Nicole!! YAY!! When I saw your card I said, "hey! I know her!!" Wow!! On Nicole's've hit the big time!! Just goes to prove that sometimes the sweet, simple cards have the most impact. Fabulous, Aimes!!

Just for fun, I decided to dig deep within the depths of your blog, and I just had to stop and say that this card is AWESOME!

The purpose of this treatment is to stimulate the pathways in the body and remove the blockage in the flow of energy.

From a Chinese medical point of view, energy moves through the human body
along fourteen main pathways and when the flow of this energy is obstructed or
blocked, the result is disease or injury, such as pain, reproductive disorders, or gynecological
problems (to name just a few).

Getting referrals is one of the bst means to find the one you
are searching for. One well equipped pen - which certainly needs a pocket protector before I carry iit around - can function as a grenade.
In this case, make some research early on even before the actual unfortunate
