$15 gift certificate

We’ll pick a top winner and some runners-up.
It could be you!

I have 2 cards to share with you today.

 Here’s card #1: This is the type of Clean and Simple (CAS) card that meets of AAA Cards CAS definition.
Lots of “white space” space (any color) WITHOUT ANY texture or pattern.
I did some stenciling, creative stamping, fussy cutting, heat embossing and dry embossing to make the card.
Here’s card #2. This card is Clean and Simple, BUT it does not meet AAA Cards’ requirements for “white space” because of the all over embossing.

img_5943_edited-1If I had dry embossed only part of the card, maybe the edges of the card or simply the center panel, it would meet the AAA Cards’ CAS defintion.

img_5944_edited-1I made the center panel of this card I used some liquid masking medium through a stencil
and then did some ink blending over the masked flowers.img_5949_edited-1
 I did some fussy cutting, attached the panel to the middle of the card front and then stamped the sentiment. img_5947_edited-1
Then, I dry embossed the front of the card. I love this card, BUT it DOES NOT meet AAA’s Clean and Simple requirements.

Here, once again, is my embossed card which meets AAA’s CAS definition.

I hope that you are inspired to play along. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members’ blogs.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

I’m happy to be here today for AAA Cards Game #89 – Bright & Beautiful.

Our Sponsor: So Suzy Stamps – $25 gift certificate

We’ve also got four of the So Suzy DT guesting with us for this challenge!

Here’s my card:img_5899_edited-1

I love using stencils and I love butterflies. img_5904_edited-1

So, this week, I combined a favorite stencil and a favorite butterfly stamp to make a bright and beautiful card.

img_5910_edited-1I stamped the sentiment, did some fussy cutting and added the chevron butterfly panel to the card front with foam tape.
