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.


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!

    This is HUGE!

    Simply Sent iPhone App SentApp
    It has been hard to keep this a secret-we're so excited about it! We have created a card-making application, and we already have a great name for it: Simply Sent!
    This iPhone app allows you to create an e-card-from a template or completely on their own-and send it via e-mail or post it on Facebook. And it's free!
    Here's something you should know about this app: it's not My Digital Studio on a mobile device, not even close. This scaled-back version will give you a taste of what they can create when you buy MDS.
    Download it from iTunes or the App Store today! Just search: SIMPLY SENT
