Good morning and I hope this finds everybody well, albeit rather cold if you are in the UK.  The challenge today at MAWTT is CAS, as chosen by Amy.

My Card

6" square card base - using purple cardstock
Deco Swirl embossing folder - Crafter's Companion
Star Flower dies -  John Next Door
Sentiment - computer generated

I have had this embossing folder for a few years - along with a couple of others - and never used it.  It worked perfectly for this challenge. I like the way the top flourish  is embossed and the lower one is debossed.  I know some people find CAS cards very difficult but I quite enjoy it.  However, it wouldn't be something I do on a regular basis because I love adding die cuts and embellishments.

Why not pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the DT have made for this challenge?

Well that's it for today.  Take care.

  9. That's a great embossing folder for CAS because it leaves so much clean, un-textured space. Well done! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
