This is my DT card using the Daffodil Delight set birthday greeting the set .  I love this 'Happy Birthday' stamp!!
This card has one layer of designer paper, one piece of ribbon and two butterflies , pretty simple! I outlined the greeting with black marker to give it more definition on the patterned paper.
 
 
I few hints on clean and simple card making. I am loving CAS cards more every day and I am enjoying making them too.    Here are a few ideas for your CAS card making!
I think the most important thing is to use really good base paper. 100# paper gives you a beautiful sturdy card.  When it is in the hand it feels heavy, even if you are only making and A2 size card (half sheet)!  Light weights, and thing under 80# for CAS is going to feel flimsy and not be nearly as appealing.  The hearvier papers are just more elegant, it is like the difference of eating a hot dog on a cheap paper plate or china, of course it is going to taste better on china!!  It is all in the Setting
 
 
 

 
Use contrast!!  Simple still needs to an attention grabber!
 


Use quality bling very minimally


Tie it all together Simply!
 

 More than anything else, make it with Love!!


Thanks for stopping By, Have a great day and if you were wondering :
I have 48 more days to go and I am doing good!!!
