CAS Congrats!

I have a few CAS cards (clean and simple) to share today, using the new Donna's Stylin Sayings set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This set is perfect for so many different background affects and includes sayings that can be used for a variety of occasions.

My first card combined three different Distress Inks on the same image.  A simple “Celebrate” was heat embossed across the center, using Purple Spark Embossing Powder.

The texture was added using the small dotted image with Versamark Ink and White Detailed Embossing Powder.

Most CAS cards involve a single layer but I decided to use three, using an embossing folder to add design and texture to the second layer and a simple sheer bow on the front layer.

This second card uses the same technique and colors in two corners.  This gives a great pop of color but plenty of white space for the simple "Congrats" sentiment.


Once again I used three layers, this time using some coordinating color for the second layer.  

Both cards are very quick and easy – perfect to have on hand for that last minute card!

This is a really neat looking card. I love the white "spots" all over which looks like it is just glistening.
