AAA Cards Challenge #112 - A Favourite Technique

We have a gift of a challenge starting today at AAA Cards - we like you to you your favourite technique to create a CAS card. How about that? Easy or what?

So I plumped for inlaid dies. I often use dies on my cards and love the look that popping them back into the aperture gives.

Sugar Peas is sponsoring this new challenge and I used some of their kindness products on my card. I love the idea of sending out cards - yes actually mailing them out - and the flat inlaid die technique helps keep the costs down.

Stamps: Sugar Pea, Kindness Matters, Caring Hearts
Ink: SU tempting turquoise; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: Sugar Pea, Kindness

Have you spotted all the favourite techniques from the rest of the AAA Cards DT? I've had fun trying to guess before reading their posts to discover what they actually are. Check them all out HERE.

Thanks for looking today, I really appreciate your time. And if you're still reading this far down my post and would like to receive this card I'm happy to mail it out to you. Just leave your email in a comment and I'll get back to you.

I'm popping this card into the challenge at Just Us Girls as they're looking for CAS cards.

And keep crafting!

  8. Jane, this is so pretty card! I just thought on weekend that I haven't been using inlaid die cuts for a while. Colouring took me over completely. I should revisit my craft stash and check what is good for your technique. Thank you for inspiring! Happy Easter to you! - Sweet Kobylkin

  9. That sentiment is so true! I think I am going to have to pin this card Jane. I love the simplicity of it! So happy to have you with us in the gallery at Just Us Girls for Wild Card Week!

  10. My CAS-loving heart is crushing all over your tumbling envelopes and fabulous kindness sentiment! So delighted you shared this gem in the Just Us Girls gallery!

  11. Hi Jane. Die cut inlay is one of my favs too, i actually am a jigsaw addict, so I love how the pieces fit right back in the aperture. I love the super CAS design and the awesome sentiment on the card. Great use of the die with blue card stock. Hugs - Bharati
