CAS Many Thanks

Good morning 🙂

Today I’m playing with The Card Concept. I must say I had to get out of my comfort zone and I struggled to find something I would be happy with. But I’m quite pleased with it, and that’s exactly why I like to enter challenges 🙂

As often with Clean and Simple cards, the design part seems easy peasy, but quite the opposite : I must have changed every item three times or more before mounting the feather with foam pads! And then, when everything was set, I decided to dry emboss 3 lines at the bottom of the card, so I had to carefully remove everything… Uhh, maybe one day I’ll learn to plan my design in advance 😉

The feather has been die-cut in teal and also in black to get the little parts. I added Stickles Crystal to the ends of the feathers to give a little bit of the shininess of the real feathers. The rhinestones all around the feather are just like little drops of water, very pretty 🙂

    Oh my, what a beautiful card you’ve created with this lovely shimmery-edged feather, pretty silver dots and embossed lines! Well worth the ‘fussing’ because the end result is fabulous. I, too, struggle with CAS, yet in the end, it’s the style I prefer. Your creation here: crisp, simple and delightful! Thank you for sharing at ATSM!

    It’s worth the effort which you took to re-arrange to the elements as it turned out beautiful, Delphine.

    To answer your question, it fits 3 mini cards in the gift bag!
