Every Thursday my friend and fellow A Muse Studio Creative Consultant, Chris, has "CAS Thursdays" on her blog, showcasing cards that are made in the "clean and simple" style. Chris does such a great job with this style of card. For me, this style is a bit of a challenge, but today I have a CAS card I made, and I love how it turned out! I used Mod Backgrounds 1 for the tiny dots, and embossed it with Satin Pearl Embossing Powder for my rain. The sun was cut from Papaya card stock using a die from Cupcake Toppers Die Set. I inked around the edge with Bellini Ink to add some depth to my sun.The clouds are cut from Vellum card stock using our Cloud Duo Die Set. Sentiment is from Days Like This and the background paper is Bermuda card stock. All these items can be found on my web store HERE. I hope that you will go and check out Chris's blog too, she has lots of inspiring creations to look at!
Hope your day is full of joy! Thanks for stopping by!

All products used for my card are from A Muse Studio. For my card I used Cobalt card stock to create a frame with my nestabilities labels #8. I embossed my snowflakes with Diamond embossing powder over Sky ink, on our velum paper. The sentiment is stamped with Cobalt ink directly onto the Sugar card base, then covered with the velum layer. I used the cobalt frame not only to draw focus to the center of my card, but also to hide the lines created by the glue on the velum! The ribbon is from my stash, and wraps all the way around the front flap of the card. It's kind of fun to do this if you intend to add a photo inside, just slip it under the ribbon to hold it in place on the inside of your card! I just realized that this stamp set is not in the current catalog, but our new holiday catalog will be out at the end of this month, I am hoping that this set will be in there, it is so lovely!
Enjoy the hop!! Have a wonderful day!!
