CAS-ual Fridays #10 -- Shaped cards


I believe I made the deadline for CASual Fridays' tenth challenge which is shaped cards. I love using my Nesties but thought I'd make an actual shape to go with some Paper Smooches stamps that needed some inking.


I adore this birthday set. Very punny sentiments and the images are so darn cute! Apple. Worm. Need I say more? Party worm! And I love the large sentiment set, too.

I don't know if this is considered CAS because it has so many pieces, and I ink distressed the edges of the apple and leaf to give it some depth.

Is that a no no? Is it supposed to be cleaner and simpler?
I just wanted it to look like a worm and not a finger....

Thanks for stopping by today...Hope you're having a great week so far!

Stamps: All Paper Smooches
Cardstock: Papertrey ink
Ink: Memento, Versafine, Ranger distress inks
Other: Copics

  15. Wonderful job with CAS! You've proven my point that CAS can have layers and depth of color and still be Clean And Simple! You have lots of "white" or open space and your focal point is clear :) Love it to pieces and so glad you played along at CAS-ual Fridays!!
