I'm back from my little break in Cornwall and have some great news today.
A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a challenge at Crazy for CAS and in doing so I have been given the opportunity to be Guest Designer for the next challenge! I absolutely love CAS cards and my style has slowly evolved to become clean and simple so its an honour to be given this chance to be part of the Design Team for this challenge.
This time the challenge is to make a CAS creation with twine or ribbon. I've seen twine and ribbon being used in so many ways to accent cards, its a great staple to have in any stash.
So, without further ado, here is my card...
I started by die cutting the geometric rose out of some pink cardstock. Next I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves. I threaded the twine through the button leaving two long strands and then, after adhering a large glue dot to the back of the button, started looping and securing the twine in a floral pattern. I then used a second glue dot to adhere the button to the flower. I used a clear stamp for the sentiment which I curved on the acrylic block to follow the curve of the die cut before stamping. And to finish, I added a few co-ordinating sequins and rounded the top corner.
