CAS-ual Friday Challenge

Happy Friday everyone! There's a new challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays and it sure is a fun one!

For this challenge we are going with Michele's idea of summer which is to create a clean and simple project using Tan, White and one bright color.

For my bright color I chose orange
To create this card I started with a 3.75" x 5" Neenah Solar White cardstock. I then used the cute sun from the CAS-ual Fridays Sunmbeams stamp set and stamped it with Simon Says Orange Peel Ink.  I then stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) with VersaMark Ink, added white embossing powder and heat set it on some "tan" color cardstock.  This wasn't really the tan I was going for but I didn't have any so I figured since some of us tan more than others this kraft cardstock was fine :)

Before putting everything together I felt it was missing some detail and since I wanted to keep it very CAS I decided to use Avery Elle Dotted Border Dies and die cut the left and right edge of my card with the straight die to get a stitched edge.

Now it was time to put everything together.  I decided to add my panel to my base with foam adhesive to give my card a pop.  The sentiment strip I adhered with the ATG gun.

I have entered this card in the Simon Says Wednesday challenge: Anything Goes



I love hearing what you think... :)
