Tuesday Talk

Hi! I'm here today to share a card I made for the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the code word is PLAID.


Here's my card:

I knew I had a pad of plaid papers lurking in my stash and went searching for a suitable colour to paper piece a flower.  As the plaid pattern is quite a large design I needed a large flower stamp so I chose Uniko's Gerbera.

I kept my card CAS by simply adding a bold sentiment under the flower head.

Stamps: Uniko, Pure Florals: Gerbera, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Paper: Paper Cellar, squares

I'm also popping this card into Less is More's challenge where they want designer paper in a CAS style.
We'd love you to display our banner

So pleased you had time to drop by today, thanks so much.  And keep crafting!

  1. The Uniko gerbera stamped over the bold plaid pattern looks amazing, Jane! Great to see you over at Less is More :)

  2. I would never have thought of paper piecing that yummy Uniko gerbera Jane but this looks FABULOUS! Stunning in fact and it's great to see you've linked up at Less is More and ATCAS with it too. Thanks so much. Sarah x

  3. What a brilliant idea using this flower with the plaid. Love this flower from Uniko and together with the paid its perfect. I need to get more paid, I couldn't believe looking through my stash I had one piece lol.

  4. This looks great, Jane! The whole card is so clean and crisp, and the flower looks really impactful with the paper piecing. Great job!

  5. Wow! That plaid paper in the gerbera looks amazing! Such an eye-catching card Jane.
