Good afternoon. It just hit me I didn't realize it was this late already. Time flies when your stamping. Lol
As the title of the post says, I am going to progress you through my single layer card. I was feeling like CAS cards get the rap of being easy but sometimes I think they take a lot more design ability than layered cards.
I started my card with a sketch idea.
Then my color palette.
This was my first card. Now I am going to share all the reasons I had a problem with it:
*to many candles
*even number of candles
*cake to close to top of card
*birthday greeting to close to edge of card
*greeting strips to far apart
*cake plate not solid enough to ground image
So for all those reasons I started over.
Supplies: 110lbs top folding white card base
Altenew, Papertrey Ink and Stampin Up inks
CAS-ual Friday's Shenanigans stamp set
Essentials by Ellen Wonky Backdrops stamp set
Concord and 9th Happy Day stamp set
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday is celebrating birthdays. So today's card will be entered in the challenge.
Finally the card has two of my favorite techniques. One layer cards and using words as design elements.
Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
