CAS Cards and not so CAS Tag


Hey there Paper Peeps! I challenged myself to get outside my comfort zone and try out a new crafty style. For me that would be Clean and Simple. I know I tend to go a little overboard with the layers and trimmy bits….but I thought I might stretch myself creatively.  I created 4 Beautiful Butterfly Greeting Cards that I believe qualify as CAS…but I relapsed into my old ways  while I had the supplies on the table and went ahead and made a tag that is more my reg style. I hope you enjoy both : )

CAS cards 1I printed a sheet of my Butterfly Circles Digital Collage, clipped them out and punched a border from black cardstock and layered them up on a printed doily. I found the doilies in the Halloween section at Michael’s.  I chose a lovely subtly patterned paper and embossed it for texture. Another black border and added that to a card base. Once I had four cards complete I bundled them up and tied them together with additional ribbon and a metal rimmed mailing tag topped with a fun embellishment and clipped on with wooden clothes pin .  Wide Black Plaid Ribbon. Narrow Black Plaid Ribbon.

  1. Love your attempt to create a CAS style! I have the same trouble…I always want to add a little more. CAS card fronts always seem to be lacking something, or maybe there’s just too much open space. Anyway, bring on some layers and added embellishments!
