CAS





This is my first card in the CAS series. I fail at leaving things alone! I made the card and felt it needed something so I added the butterflies you see in the second image. I dont know, just hard cards for me to love :) I do however like the shaped card, it is the new SU die set - love the shape and so nice of SU to come out with it. I know a lot of demos are happy about that with all the competition from Spellbinders. One thing I learned after making my first two cards like this, I need heavier card stock. After I use the water colors on the image the card curls and no amount of flattening will stop it. The third one you will see I used Gina K's heavy card stock, I am going to order more of that unless someone knows of another brand that's less expensive and as thick. I don't like the Neenah white stuff and don't need it since I don't use Copics. It held up very well :) This image is a Hedgie by, you guessed it, Penny Black. I will use other stamps for the next few cards! I have a Stampavie and a Magnolia coming up.
