AAA Cards Game 26 - CREATE

And this week at AAA Cards it's another Halloween themed card we're after, but this time it has to be CAS!


I know there are a few definitions of CAS out there, but I thought I'd just share what mine is:
a card that has empty (white) space, with minimal layers and embellishments, one main image and a general tidy unfussy look.

So I started with a black panel and stamped the spider and its web in white. This was mounted onto two thin mats of orange and purple - seems they're essential colours for Halloween.


I stamped the sentiment banner, added another spider web and then handcut it before mounting onto pads.


So some layers, but still lots of empty (white) space and a simple design to keep it CAS.

Supplies:
Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Fright Night & Halloween Spirit
Inks: SU, whisper white

Thanks for your time today. Remember to pop over to AAA Cards and look at the wonderful creations by the rest of the team.
