Super simple, CAS styling with lots of bling! I know CAS does not normally entail lots of bling….but those beads pack a punch in small doses. My card is based on the CASE Study Challenge this week. Here is the original inspiration photo by Agnieszka.
I love how she showcased the letter M for Mother’s Day. My birthday card stash is getting depleted, so I first thought of HB for Happy Birthday. Design Team member Debby Hughes mentioned using beads on her card. Light bulb went off! I have tons of beads that I have owned for over a decade, unopened! Since I am on a mission to use my stash, this was the perfect opportunity. Here is a closer look at my bead detail-
My photos do not do them justice. In real life, they shimmer and shine! All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
D1400 Birthday Stamp Set
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
1386 Black Cardstock
Retired Raspberry Cardstock
Tuxedo Black Ink by Memento
Glass Beads by Gary M Burlin
Z1104 Clear Sparkles
RV17 Deep Magenta Copic Sketch
Design Tips-The font is from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. I used the negative image and popped the layer up from my cardbase. I colored my clear sparkles with the Copic Sketch to match my color scheme. The Raspberry cardstock was retired many years ago from Close To My Heart. I failed to purchase a reinker for this pad....and after 14 years of use....my Raspberry Ink pad has bit the dust. If anyone wants to part with a Raspberry Reinker, let me know! I hoarded the cardstock away.....sadly not the reinker!
