Clean and Simple\Plain and Simple

This is a card I made for the Caardvarks Clean and Simple challenge, the Allsorts Plain and Simple challenge and the clean and simple challenge at My Partner in Crafting Crime. The Scrappy Saturday Challenge this week is CAS and\or tags so I'm submitting to that challenge too.


CAS House
Stamp (Hero Arts) - House with Plant

I really admire CAS cards but I find them very difficult to make. With this one I embossed the house in white and added the Hero Arts heart pearl to the door. Then I machine stitched the frame and ground around the house. I added some twine that Sue had kindly sent me a while ago along with lots more fab goodies - thanks again Sue. After that I needed to sit on my hands or tie them behind my back so I wouldn’t fiddle around with the card anymore or add anything else – oh it was so hard to resist doing something else with it! So I quickly took a photo and uploaded it.

Hi Heather, your card is gorgeous. The white embossing really makes everything pop. This card is perfect just the way it is. you did a great job. I love kraft paper embossed with white and the red card base is terrific with the kraft paper. Take care and God bless.

Great CAS design, Heather! I love the red heart & twine against the kraft.

Simply perfect! That little heart is just the right touch and the red throughout just ties it all together.
