My CAS-iest CAS Card -- Ever!

Hi, everyone.

Seems like forever since I've been able to play along with a CAS-ual Fridays challenge. It's so good to join in the current challenge to make a card featuring three of something that uses only one-third of the card's area.

When I first read the challenge, I thought of three squares/rectangles with "thank you" in three different languages -- a slightly different take on one of my "your thoughtfulness meant the world to me" cards. I originally considered different options for the squares/rectangles -- stenciling, sponging, punches, punched-out negatives, etc. Since most of the cards I make are for Operation Write Home, I tend to layer patterned papers and cardstock -- adding at least a few embellishments.

Then a friend at work gave me some 6 by 6 pads that were headed for a post-craft-room-cleaning garage sale. So, I decided to make this thank you card for Mary Anne. That's when I decided to challenge myself to make an uber-CAS version of this card. I decided to make a one-layer card -- embellished only with 3 tiny brads -- with a completely digital design... aside from those little brads.  :)

3 rectangles with "thank you" in 3 languages in 3 fonts, adorned by 3 tiny brads
digital design on Bazzill white; SU brads
inside sentiment: Your Thoughtfulness Meant the World to Me
Okay, I'm interested in getting feedback on this little card. It's such a change of pace for me... hope it's a good one. And, hope that Mary Anne likes her thank you.

Parting Thoughts

There's still a little time left to link up a card for this month's Words 2 Scrap By Bloom Where You Are Planted challenge. The link closes on May 21, and we'd love to have you join us!

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!

  1. LOVE the simplicity of this card - and digital, too! The three little brads are the perfect finishing touch.
