Colourful congrats

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s time for a new challenge over at AAA Cards. This fortnight’s theme is ‘use only a third’ and our sponsor is Winnie and Walter.

I often use the ‘one third’ guide to help me ensure my card is sufficiently CAS! Whenever I’m in doubt, I always try to mentally work out if I have ‘used’ a third of my card base in some way. In my mind, using one third or less = CAS!

I also try to ensure I vary my CAS designs as it’s easy to get stuck with a favourite/’go to’ design, One third doesn’t have to mean a rectangle/square/oval etc, it can be any shape. In fact, I even toyed with masking circles for this challenge!

Anyway, for my card, I masked off approximately one third of my card and blended some Distress Oxide inks (Abandoned Coral, Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves) and added some water droplets. I used Winnie & Walter cutaways (dies) for the sentiment and the confetti.

My teammates have shared some gorgeous CAS cards on the AAA Cards blog and we are also joined by two Guest Designers Shay from Winnie and Walter and Ishani from Quillish. They both have some amazing creations on their blogs, so please drop by their sites!

I’m also linking this up to the current Anything Goes with Dies challenge at Happy Little Stampers.

Thanks for stopping by – I do hope you play along with us!

  1. This has been an amazing choice of theme for the challenge Lucie and you’re so right about one third being a brilliant way to equal CAS. And your one third is such an out of the box way to think of it, super idea and a fabulous card.

  2. Lucie, this is a wonderful card! I like that you created ray-like blended area, not just straight. I haven’t thought about this. Beautiful blending makes the glittered die cut stand out perfectly! Have a great day!
