Hi sweet friends! Today, I started working on the last Verve challenge for this month. It is a CAS sketch and I started with a feminine AnyHero card, but wasn’t sure if it was CAS enough, so I then made a patriotic AnyHero card.  I think I have been hanging out with the Less is More crowd too much (LOL) because I still felt it was not CAS enough.  So I made one more card with lots of white space.  I decided to show you all of them to get input about them, since I am learning how to make CAS cards.

This is the last one I made and the one I think I will enter into the challenge:

I had to alter the sketch a little so the stamps would fit, but I like the card. I paper pieced the balloon and basket, and I embossed the white layer with a Darice embossing folder. The stamps are Verve.


The feminine card:

Now, I love this card. It is so much my style, but I just wasn’t sure if it was CAS.  The papers are Wild Rose Studio, the stamp is Verve and the flower is Inspired by Stamping.


And the patriotic one:

I love the vintage feel of this one.  The large panel background was made using the Wax Paper technique and Distress Inks. I made little pleats in the ribbon and sewed them down. The star is from a Sizzlits die and is embossed with a Verve stamp. The sentiment is also Verve.


So, three cards from the same sketch and all three have an entirely different feel.  Are they all CAS?

Now for the challenges:

I also made this card for:
Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge:
*Operation Write Home: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
