With Love, Today and Always

This post is to share the CAS card I made for the new challenge on the

Today I have used the Poppies digital stamp from SheepSki Designs, one of our generous sponsors for this challenge to make two cards.   You can read all about the new challenge, the generous sponsors and the details about my layered card on my first post HERE or by clicking on the photo below.


I started my card by opening the digital image in Silhouette Studio.  I cropped the large area of "white space" from the image and sized the panel to 3 3/4" wide x 2 1/2" high.  I created a sentiment (font details below) and added it to the image panel to created a card front.  I printed the panel on X-Press It blending card, trimmed to size, heat set and coloured with Copic markers.  I created a 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" card base using heavy smooth white cardstock.  (No, I don't know why it ended up such an odd size, I usually make 5" x 7", 6" square or A5 sized cards, perhaps I was going to mat the panel instead of it being so CAS ... maybe I will do that next time.)

... and one last pic of both cards together, the CAS card
looks tiny but it's only 1/4" smaller than the layered one,
the CAS card 6 3/4" x 4 3/4", the layered is  7" x 5"


NOW it's YOUR turn!
