Greetings! I am featuring two new releases from the CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) Mega Trade Show in January - Texture Gems™ and Mixed Media Stencils 101 - Hexagon. I wanted to create a mix media meets CAS (Clean And Simple) design and came up with this!
I create a background with the Kraft card base using Pearl and Gold Texture Gems™ and Mixed Media Stencils 101 - Hexagon. Where I overlapped colors, I waited for the first layer to dry before using a contrasting color.
While the background dried, I cut/embossed Contemporary Circles Strip Die with the gold mirror cardstock in my Artisan X-plorer Machine.
Next I stamped my sentiment with Stamper's Big Brush Green Gold Pen onto white cardstock and cut/emboss over the it with Contemporary Circles Circle Die.
I used the Adhesive Sheet - 4 x 6" for the Strip die cut and placed on my card front. The Circle die cut was centered in the strip using 3D Foam Square - Black, Regular for dimension.
For the finishing touch, I added "pearls" with the Pearl Texture Gems™.
Cardstock and Card: WorldWin® Papers (Gold Mirror Cardstock) and Core'dinations ColorCore® Cardstock (Kraft Card Base); Stamp: JustRite® Papercraft (All Boy Clear Stamp); Die Template: Spellbinders® Creative Arts (S4-498 Contemporary Circles and Artisan X-plorer™ Machine); and Adhesives: SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L® (Adhesive Sheet - 4 x 6" and 3D Foam Squares - Black, Regular)
I hope you enjoyed this twist on a CAS card! Thanks for stopping by!
