Wishing You Brighter Days

Hi everyone. I have created a CAS card today – an idea I had yesterday and going round in my mind. I changed my idea several times, and this card is the one I prefer. Isn’t it strange how such a CAS card can lead to several versions?

I have wanted to use this die set for ages – and have left it out on my desk since I bought it – which is probably a few months, actually! There are 6 small square dies in this set – and I’ll probably make some encouraging cards with the rest of the images.

I die cut the Pink Fresh Studio square from white card stock with double sided sticky tape on the back. This was placed in the centre of a square card whilst I toyed with a couple of ways to add the extremely glittery blue card into the petals.

I first inlaid them on one card, then I made another and this time I inserted the white petals in first, then added the blue petals on top – that way the blue petals stood a little proud of the outline.

It’s very difficult to show the glimmer here – but trust me – it’s very sparkly!

As I am currently making cards with encouraging sentiments – mainly anyway – I used this sentiment from a Clearly Besotted stamp set.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  2. Cool! I love the clean layout and the sparkly petal inlays. Lots of white with a pop of colour looks amazing. Thanks for sharing your beautiful spring card with the Daring Cardmakers this week.
