CASology “LATE”

Week 284 - Late

CASology is one of the challenges I so often participate in because they seek “making the complicated, SIMPLE” and that’s the defeat I try to work by.  I’ve been graciously invited as their Guest Designer this week, truly an honour.  The cue word this week is LATE“!  A little die-cut and a bit of stamping make for a CAS card atop a white card base is my idea of keeping it simple. Guest Designer Badge

Using a left over piece of painted watercolour paper, dried with cling wrap, a die cut was made using MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangles STAX.  Before adhering the die cut to my white card base, I melted some UTEE to give it some shine, adding a few grains on the card base.  Once glued, using a circle punch, I cut a groove out of the front top of my card to then add an eyelet and a tinted cheesecloth bow (I wanted to make sure that it would nicely fit in an envelope 😀 ).  Finally I stamped and gold heat embossed the dots and sentiment “Je suis un peu en retard…” “I’m a little late…”  for a special late Birthday Card.  I used white enamel accents on the die cut to imitate and repeat the stamped dots.

I hope you’ll join this lovely team over at CASology for this week’s challenge.  I wish to send a warm thanks to this talented group of card makers.

Thank YOU so much for stopping by, hugs, Joanna
