CCC #88

IMG_4082


It's time for this week's new CASology cue card.
This week the cue word is:


I cut my base and then cut on thinner piece of Vintage Cream for my sentiment.  I embossed the VC panel in woodgrain after stamping my sentiment.

How the Basics of CAS cards applies to my card:

1.  One main image--my sentiment
2.  Lots of open space (uncluttered)
3.  Limited layers & embellishments--one additional layer over base
4.  Quick & easy to recreate--4 steps
