WOW on a CAS card!

Clean and Simple (CAS) one-layer cards are oh, so simple - so you think!  Honestly, they are probably a little more tricky b/c you skip the layers, ribbons, & extra goodies.  But what if you want to add some WOW! to that card?  Here's an easy technique that will give you some WOW!  

1. Stamp your flower image
2. Take an Exto-knife and cut around the edges of the petals (about 1/2 - 3/4 of the way down the petal). Do not cut all the way down because you will end up cutting out the image instead of just a few key petals.
3. Slightly curl up the petal edges.

As you can see in the pictures, it really adds a special touch to a one-layer CAS card.

Challenges:

Supplies: All Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, Rose Red
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Word Play
Accessories: Waterbrush

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
May your holiday be filled with family & friends, love & laughter!

Your card is very beautiful and would not have guessed that you just partly cut the flowers. Great tip.
