CAS cards(so not my style)!!!!


There is a new challenge started this week called CAS-ual Fridays, now CAS means clean and simple which is so not my style, so I have found this card quite hard to make.  I think that's why I chose to make a masculine card as generally ribbon and bling don't get a look in .LOL


My local craft store has just started stocking these Kraft cards and I love the shape, they are 8 inches by 3 inches so tall and very narrow. I have stamped the Beetle car and then stamped over with some text from the Hero Arts Dictionary Greetings set. Next I have distressed a little.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I am looking forward to a crafty weekend,  its raining here so no gardening and I know my DH will be glued to the TV watching the motor racing!!



Supplies:-Hero Arts stamps CL479 Dictionary Greetings. CL478 Going.  Distress inks and Memento Black ink.
