CAS One Layer

Hello friends! Here's my weekly offering for Less Is More: One Layer Week: Curve

I'd also like to enter the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge: Create a Scene

My scene only involves a snow bank an a night sky so I do admit it's on the boring side when it comes to scenes... Just remove my card from the gallery if this is way too simple! I hope to come up with a better scene before the challenge closes. :)

Anyway, I made a very quick CAS card:

-masked the snowbank using a SSS snowbank die
-sponged three shades of blue and green inks for Lapland inspired night sky
-added some extra texture to the sky part with Marianne Design bg stamp using white pigment ink, barely visible in the photo but nice, subtle look IRL
-die cut the stitched curve with the matching SSS die
-gold heat embossed the Finnish Christmas sentiment 

No embellies, no nothing. :)

Thanks for popping by!

  11. This is wonderful Nonni ! A perfect representation of what CAS means ! I love your colour blending and I'm sure that the addition of white pigment ink is great IRL (I can imagine it on the right and left borders). I don't understand Finnish but the big and swirly sentiment is just gorgeous embossed in gold ! Really gorgeous card !
    Thanks for sharing and for inspiring.

  12. So simple, So elegant, So great for this week's LIM challenge
