CAS Background

Happy Monday :) Today I am one of the Guest Designers in the CAS Group at Splitcoast!! Yipee!! The challenge this week is a technique: Make your own background; one of my favorites :) I started by lining up the 3 chairs from "Have a Seat" on my grid paper and picking them up on my acrylic block. Then, I repeatedly stamped the images in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. I rounded the upper right corner and added some ink to the edges with my dauber.

I have been loving the look of layered punches. So, I did a lot of that here. Using the Decorative Label Punch, I punched out a Crumb Cake label and stamped it using the polka dot stamp from "For All You Do". I used the same stamp, but the short end, to punch out the "miss you". Lastly, I used my Oval punch and layered that behind the sentiment!!! The top layers are popped up on dimensionals. This was definitely a fun one to make. I love how detailed a CAS card can be without getting over-embellished!!!
