Clean and Simple: Dog Sympathy Card
For the next few weeks I'm taking an online cardmaking course on Clean and Simple cards, otherwise known as CAS Cards. It seems a bit strange that the hardest cards to make, at least for me, are the clean and simple ones. Oh yes! I can layer onto one card just about every embellishment, glitter and glitz I have, but challenge me to use only cardstock, stamp and ink with blank spots showing...YIKES! I panic.
Today was the first demonstration of sample layouts and cards with an excellent video and samples. I just know I'm going to thoroughly enjoy this course.
My card uses the first layout we were assigned. Because I make and send sympathy cards for loss of pets, I decided to use a dog sympathy card as my focal point.
Stamps: Cornish Heritage Farms Dog Backgrounder, Papertrey Ink Sentiment, Paw print from Clear Stamps.
Ink: Memento Bamboo Leaves, Versamark and detail white embossing powder
Supplies: White gel pen and foam dots.
