Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a CAS (Clean and Simple) love birds card. The fun of making CAS cards is to keep a card as simple as possible so you don’t need a lot of material to make one.
For my CAS Love Birds card, I used one stamp set only and of course several Scrapbook Adhesives® by 3L adhesives. Add a technique called Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside. I would love to share how I made my card. Will you join me?
Love Birds Card Panel + Base
Start by making a yellow circle on a white piece of cardstock. Simply ink an ink blending tool with a little yellow ink and create a yellow circle by dabbing the ink on the middle of the cardstock and gently smooch the ink outward to a bigger circle shape.
Remember to build the circle with multiple layers of light inking. This prevents ink stains.
Next, adhere the colored cardstock onto a piece of kraft cardstock using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser with the E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill for extra-strong adhering. It’s easy to switch to your needed refill, see the How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers video.
OR you can use the stand-alone E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Next, adhere to a white card base.
Adding the Love Birds
First, stamp some birds onto white cardstock using a black ink pad. Then color the birds. Next fuzzy cut the birds. For a branch, I used a real twig from my garden and adhered it onto the card base using the Dual Tip Glue Pen.
Now let the glue dry thoroughly. Since the branch is quite thick I stacked some 3D Foam Squares White Mix and 3D Foam Squares Micro White to adhere the birds onto the card.
This makes the birds really pop up! Then adhere the sentiment sticker onto a kraft banner which I cut using scissors. Adhere the banner to the card using 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
Wear Your Adhesives on the Outside with Glitter
To add a finishing touch to my CAS Bird card I used a technique called Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside, making your adhesive shine! I adhered some hearts using the E-Z Runner® Hearts Refillable Dispenser onto the card base.
For precise adhering I used tweezers. Then rub some red ultra-fine glitter with your finger over the adhesive hearts. Next, gently tab off any excess glitter. And voilá…your CAS Love Birds card is ready.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and wish you happy crafting!
