CAS Cards + Layout

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing some simple, beautiful and easy cards using our newly launched Dies, Stamps and Pattern Paper.

So, let's get start

1. Mixed Media Layout 

How to Create:

  1. First I have gathered all my mixed media products which I want to use. Like, Chipboard, Gesso, Sprays, Stamps, Flower, Charm, Stencil, Pollens, Some Die Cut Leaves, twine and some scrap pieces of ice-cream sticks.
  2. I have some scrap chipboard which I have used here as a base. (You can use anything like paper, mdf, etc. but make sure you prime it before you start work on it). This layout is of 4.5" x 5.5" in size and primed with white gesso.
  3. Once gesso was dried completely I have take stencil and applied modeling paste.
  4. I kept chipboard as it to dry naturally (I have not used heat gun here, but if you want you can use it to make process fast).
  5. Once It was dried, I have stick three ice-cream sticks left top corner and right bottom corner. (It is completely depends upon you, how you want to create any layout).
  6. Applied gesso over it and when it was still wet, I took palette knife and randomly started making lines.
  7. Let everything dry completely.
  8. Take your sprays, and start applying ink where you want some dark and light shades. Here I have start with some Yellow, Blue and Red color water-based sprays.
  9. Once the layout is dry, Start adhering embellishments.
  10. I have started from some leaves, pollen and flower. Once dried, I have adhered stamped sentiment, Christmas charm and white twine.
  11. Now to finish my mixed media layout, I applied some gesso with dried brush over flower and ice-cream sticks. 
  12. For final touch applied some gold color over flower and some on background.

2. Simple CAS Card

How to Create:
  1. Started with 6" x 6" white base card, 5.5" x 5.5" white panel card and a watercolor CS which I have cut in large circle to fit on panel card.
  2. I have used some distress oxides ink to create a background.
  3. Stamped Christmas tree with black archival ink and fussy cut, Santa (colored with zig clean brush markers) and die cut some hills.
  4. Placed Circle die cut on panel card along with Christmas tree and hill die cut.
  5. Stamped Sentiment below circle cutout and placed Santa beside the one Christmas tree.
  6. To finish my card, I have used Gelly Roll White Pen to create a snow and Gold Uniball Pen to give stitched look on panel card.

3. CAS Card with handmade Flower

How to Create:
  1. Started with 6" x 6" kraft base card, 5.5" x 5.5" kraft panel card and used one of a design from new 12"x12" stencil with distress oxide.
  2. Adhered background panel on base card. Die-cut square frames and stacked on background a one up.
  3. Now, create flower using "CUT3 Gardenia die" to make some Christmas flower and hand cut leaves. And also die-cut "CUT3 thanks die" from gold CS.
  4.  Adhered flower, pollen, leaves (both hand cut and die cut) on left corner of frames.
  5. Now, adhered "thanks" die-cut and stamp co-ordinate sentiment.
  6. To finish my card,I have applied some gesso on flower and sentiment strip. 

4. Scrapbook Layout in Card Style

How to Create:
  1. I have started cutting some wide and narrow strips from "Beary Hugs" Pattern Paper.
  2. Adhered right side on 5" x 7" kraft landscape card.
  3. Stamped sentiment on left side of the card.
  4. Die-cut photo with rectangular dies and adhered with foam tape on center of a card.
  5. To finish my card, I have draw lines below each sentiment, adhered sequins and some embellishments from my stash.
