CAS thanks

Hello again, my crafty friends! When I told you that my mojo has shot up into super-charge mode, I wasn't lying! Bwahaha! While I had the new chevrons die out, I created a CAS thanks card. What better time than just before Thanksgiving, right?! I angled a few of the lines... I like how this took shape.

After cutting the chevrons into the front panel and backing the apertures with a scrap of some gorgeous Autumn/Fall-themed double-sided paper, I matted it on Tomato Soup cardstock and popped it up on the card base with dimensional foam pads.

Love the gold cording - this stuff looks good on anything! ;) The 'thanks' sentiment on the front is from one of my favorite stamp sets, stamped in Morocco ink.

I kept the inside simple. This sentiment is so awesome and really speaks from the heart!

I'd love to enter this 'thanks' card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury Ivory and Tomato Soup cardstock
  • Bo Bunny Autumn Song double-sided paper (scrap)
  • Paper Smooches Simply Said stamp set
  • GKD Fabulous Holiday Fillers
  • Memento Morocco ink
  • YNS Chevrons die
  • GKD gold cording

That's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by - we'll see you next time! ;)
