CC&S #347 – Hugs

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:

And here is my take:

Forget Me Not Hugs | by karen h @ carefree creations

This is actually my second card. The sketch flustered me that my first card was not CAS (I’ll post it in a few days). But after a few days of thinking on it, I came up with this one.

Now, I could have done this very easily by using pattern paper in the back, but nope, this is stamped/colored.

To get started, I first used a ruler on the back of the front panel to draw the shape I wanted. Then I cut the panel. The result is that the front panel is in 2 pieces – top & bottom. I added some detail with a cross-stitch impression along the opening.

The card base is where I did my stamping. I laid my front panel on the card base and made little marks so I knew where I needed to stamp. After my stamping was done, I went back in with a light-blue Copic marker so there was no white left.

The sentiment die is 3 layers and the front panel is popped up on foam tape.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!
