A Doily Hi

The super talented Anne Marie has a great CAS (Clean And Simple) challenge for us this week at the Paper Players:

I decided to really focus on the CAS aspect of this challenge, because I often struggle with this.  And struggle I did — I have several versions of this very simple card in my trash can.  Either I didn’t line the two layers up properly, or I stamped the sentiment crooked, or I got a random smear of ink on the white card stock, or somehow otherwise messed it up.  I was quite frustrated with this little card by the time I finished.  Guess I need more practice with CAS, huh!?

  1. LOL, don’t you hate it when the simplest things take the longest?! Grrrr! I love this, though….your end result was well worth it. LOVE the “hi”!!!!

  2. Amy, CAS stresses me out too! I had a chuckle about the little smear of ink, because that drives me bananas, too. Your card came out beautifully! I love the raised layer and the big, bold sentiment! Perfect! 🙂
