Another Quick CAS Card Idea & Video Tutorial

Need another CAS quick card idea with a video tutorial?  If so, stick around!  This card was one that I shared with my local stampers last week, and the group was split on which card was their favorite – this one or the one I will be sharing soon, so be sure to check back for it coming up soon.

I started with the pretty patterned paper, the Watercolor Patterned Paper.  That gave me my color palette – Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.

Since I have a Daffodil Delight ribbon and not Tangerine Tango ribbon, Tangerine Tango needed to be my card base.

If I ever find myself struggling with which way the card should be, I go to my biggest element on the card.  In this case, it is the sentiment.  If this card was rotated 90 degrees, I would have very little patterned paper showing, and it wouldn't feel balanced because the sentiment is really tall.

Let's take a look at this card idea:

Ink:  Tangerine Tango

Card Stock:  Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White

You need very few supplies for this card as you can see.

Let's talk about my favorite part – the rhinestones!  As I was working on this card, it felt like there was something missing.  It took me a bit to figure out why this card just seemed unfinished.  And as Gru from Despicable Me would say, “Lightbulb.”

The sentiment is a conversation starter.  And how do you start a conversation on the front of a card and finish it on this inside?  A …

And that is how that part of it came to be.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial:

This card can be completed in a handful of minutes, which is why I call it  a Card in Five.  When you need simple cards that you can make in minutes, this new series is one for you!  Like I said, this one was the favorite card of the night for half the ladies, so be sure to check back to see the other favorite!
