CAS Thank You

Here's two more cards I made for my Clean & Simple card-making class. This first one follows the same sketch as my last post, only I used patterned paper instead of buttons:

I also added the outer border, where on my last card I left the Kraft card base nekkid.

Here's a close up so you can see the texture on that piece of off-white paper:

Okay, in truth, I only posted that because it's the most in-focus shot of the bunch. :) The papers are from the upcoming SU SAB paper pack, and I am deeply in like with them. You need to place an SU order between Jan 24th and Mar 31st and earn some for yourself. You'll thank me for it.

Here's the second card, and it uses a different sketch:

The flower was left over from another card, and the strips of paper are from a newly-opened pack of Memory Box "valise" papers that I've had for some time. Now that I've fondled them, they won't be put away for a while, so you'll be seeing more of them around here.

Since both of these cards use patterned papers and are Thank You cards, I'm entering them in the Friday Mash-Up challenge to (1) make a Thank You project, (2) use patterned paper on a project, or (3) mash it up and do both! I did both! Whoot! (go, me)

I'm still in my jammies and it's noon. That means I've missed out on doing 2 things I'd had planned to get done today. Oh, well. I suppose I could stamp some more. :)

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love those days where you just get into the task and forget to get yourself changed out of your PJs.

    You have obviously used the time productively and made some very pretty cards, I really like them both.

    Thanks for joining us.
