Hello, Happy Saturday everyone!
Today’s card I created for this week’s CASology challenge,
Our cue card / challenge at CASology this week is "Congratulations".
I wanted to create a soft and elegant look for this wedding day congratulations card,
I ended up choosing Basic Gray, White Linen and Silver for today’s colour combination.
I started today’s project by making an A2 top folding card out of Basic Gray cardstock,
Using my We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board to do all my trimming and paper scoring.
Using My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints die set 23, I die cut a banner for my sentiment out of Trophee Board White Linen cardstock, I then stamped my banner using the Best Birds Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!, stamping the word congratulations in Smoky Slate ink.

Next I used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints die set 22, I then die cut a thin strip of Silver Glimmer Paper to sit under my banner, for the last of the die cutting I used the Hollyhocks die from Impression Obsession
to die cut some flowers out of Trophee Board White Linen cardstock.

To add a bit of interest to the card, and to help the die cut elements stand out from the card base I adhered a small messy bundle of Silver Metallic Thread under all the die cut pieces, for my last finishing touch to the card I also added a few Pearl Basic jewels around the focal area.
 Another quick and easy card  to make - three die cuts, thread and some pearls!
I hope you enjoyed this CAS (clean and simple) congratulations card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
