AAA Cards - Challenge #50 CAS Halloween

Although we always ask for CAS cards at AAA Cards the new challenge starting today has CAS in its title and means we'll be less lenient when it comes to picking winners.

So maybe a definition of CAS would be helpful? Here's what I use as guidelines:
  • one main image
  • minimal layers 
  • minimal embellishments
  • white space (doesn't have to be white, just empty)
And here's my card following those guidelines:


I inlaid the die cut into the base card, so in my book it's a one layer card. There is one main image, no embellishments and lots of purple coloured white space. 


And here's a second version which I would still consider to be CAS, but perhaps not adhering to the guidelines quite so strictly because of the layers.


Supplies:
Stamps: Digid Stamp Boutique, Halloween Duchess; Clearly Besotted, Fright Night
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; SU, whisp[er white
Dies: Lawn Fawn, large stitched circle stackables; Lil'inker, stitched mats rectangles
Prp markers: tulip yellow, leaf green, cool grey 1,4,5, violet, spice, peach, burnt orange, marsh green, tan, ivory

Well I'm hoping this post will have been helpful and inspired you to give CAS Halloween a try. Remember to pop on over to see what the rest of the DT have created - here.

Thanks for dropping by today. And keep crafting!

  3. Adorable image, colored beautifully, and perfect CAS. I do love the way the second version creates a sliver like a crescent moon. Great card Jane.

  5. Both are great but the second one is my fave - that off centre look is cool. Also that stamp is so cute - you did a cracking job of colouring.
