Happy Holidays Card (ATCAS Cards Challenge #190 GDT)

Hi everyone! :o)

I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer at Addicted to CAS for a Challenge #190after I was chosen as CAS perfectionist in their Challenge #187 - One Layer. I love playing Addicted to CAS challenges, as their challenges are all about CAS (clean and simple) cards, my favorite card design. I'm happy challenges are back after half year break. :o)

The Challenge #190 theme is Pattern.

Card design needs to be CAS. Here is a CAS definition from Addicted to CAS Challenge Blog:

Note: there are various CAS cards definitions on various blogs.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Happy Holidays Card. :o)

How I made this card...

First I prepared all parts for my card: a white top folded card base, a patterned paper stripe and die-cut snowflakes.

I stamped a sentiment with a Distress Ink directly on the card base. I inked the sentiment stamp with a VersaMark Watermark Ink, wiped it with my palm, inked the stamp with the Distress Ink Hickory Smoke and pressed the sentiment on the card base. I prefer to do it this way when stamping with Distress Inks, as the stamping results are much better than without using the VersaMark Watermark Ink.

I glued 3-D foam squares on the back of the patterned stripe and glued it on the card. I cut the excess with scissors.

Then I arranged and glued snowflakes along the patterned stripe, using a glue or a 3-D foam square, just to add a bit more dimension to my card.

Easy and quick to create. :o)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")

List of supplies:

I hope you'll like my take on the challenge and get inspired. :o) Stop by the Addicted to CAS and see amazing CAS creations the Design Team made for this challenge.
