CAS63 - and a Bonus Card

I made this card for SplitCoastStampers Clean and Simple Challenge #63, which was a sketch.  It's also for SCS Technique Lovers Challenge #269, which was to use piercing.


The stamps I used are both from Repeat Impressions.  I stamped the daisy multiple times on a strip of white cardstock.  I used three of them for this card, and then I decided the others ones were evenly spaced well enough to use for another card.  I cut the three for this card with a Circle Nestability.  I colored them with with Stampin' Up! markers and sponged the edges.  I pierced the line of holes, then sanded down the back with a sanding block so that it would lay flat on the Almost Amethyst matting.


Like I said, I had these flowers left over from the previous card.  I used a dotted circle stamp from Papertrey Ink to stamp around each of the daisies.  I matted it with Barely Banana cardstock (SU!) which I embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder.  I also added Stickles on the flower centers of the stamped flowers and the embossed flowers.  The sentiment is from Verve.  (The inside of the card says "a Very Happy Anniversary.)  I also added another layer of Barely Banana matting.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

You always put things together so well. I have those circle stamps from Verve and forget to use them.

Both of your cards are wonderful Lynette. I do favor the one with the embossing on it though.
