Kraft Hello Card

Hello Crafteteers!

I tried my first CAS card yesterday.  It feels very weird to not use distress ink or sanded edges or bling or big bows...but that is the beauty of challenges: trying new things.  The Kraft Journal's challenge this week is CAS so I thought I would play along again. 

The plaid paper is from my scrap bin, the hello stamp is a Michael's bin find and the lovely tree is Spellbinder's Whimsical Tree.  I have had the tree die for a few months now and never used it (ugh...why am I so bad like that?) and the scrap paper has been in my bin for I can't even guess how long.  The white dots on the tree are made from my white enamel accents that I bought last summer and have used (including this card) on one project!  LOL.  My goal is to start using those lonely, unused dies, tools and scrap paper.  This card definitely meets that goal!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
This card is entered in the Kraft Journal's Challenge, CAS:  (

  8. CAS cards are so very difficult for me, but I think you nailed it. The pink and kraft look lovely together, and the best part of CAS cards is that you can actually put them in an envelope. (YAY!)

  9. Well, I think you did a wonderful job on this CAS beauty! I would have never guessed this was your first go! You are a natural. I am so delighted you shared with us this week at The Kraft Journal!
