Hi everyone, Yvonne here with a sweet Lovely Day CAS (Clean And Simple) Card that is really easy to make, which makes it suitable for beginner card makers too!
A Card Base for a Lovely Day CAS Card
Start by folding a piece of white cardstock to a rectangle card. Then trim a piece of blue cardstock to a card panel that is slightly smaller than the card base. Next, adhere the blue card panel onto the white card base using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser.
Making a Frame
First, trim a piece of white cardstock to fit the card base. Make sure that the panel is slightly smaller than the blue card panel. Then die-cut a circle from the white card panel to create a circle frame. Now make a grass border. To make the border, I used some green cardstock and a punch. If you don’t have such a punch, you can also die-cut or fussy cut the grass border. Now adhere the grass border onto the blue card panel using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser to adhere it.
Make sure that the grass is located so it shows within the die-cut circle frame. Then adhere 3D Foam Strips to the back of the frame card panel. Next, remove the back liner and adhere to the card base. You’ve just created a dimensional frame for your Lovely Day CAS Card!
First stamp the dog and its ball onto white cardstock using black ink and then color the image. Next fussy cut the images. Adhere both into the frame using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix. This way you create extra depth on your card since the frame is adhered with the slightly thicker 3D Foam Strips. Now stamp the sentiment onto a white banner using black ink and then adhere it onto a blue banner using the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. For a subtle uplifting effect, adhere the banner onto the card using Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix.
And voilá, your Lovely Day CAS Card is ready. I hope you enjoyed this simple tutorial and wish you happy crafting!
