M is for Mother Card

by Aga

Hello Everyone! It's Aga here and today I’m back with another CAS card. Recently, someone asked me what is the CAS and today I decided to create an example of my idea of a CAS (clean and simple) style.

So, my definition of “clean and simple” is SIMPLE and means generous amount of white space with minimal layers and embellishments. Less is more is definitely the rule to follow here.

For my card today, I used Vintage Flowers stamp set and a beautiful sentiment from Best Mom set. First, I stamped the sentiment and a few little flowers with black ink to create a background. Then I stamped a flower and leaves with Forest Glades and Evergreen inks and die cut them with coordinating dies.

everything I am 1

As a final touch I added a gold “M” sticker in the centre.

everything I am 2

I love the simplicity of the CAS style. How about you?

Thank you for stopping by today!

The card is beautiful. I love it! You have it a KISS (keep it simple & sweet).. How do you like that expression ?
Great work!

Beautiful card and I love CAS! I must embrace this technique myself as I do find white space very impactful.

This card is very nice. But I must comment on your latest trophy set. It is too bad that there wasn’t also a woman superhero. It seems the the only woman is one looking adoringly up at a man. We are superheroes too. I love your stamps though.
