It’s time for another challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card using as much white/empty space as possible. Out optional twist this time is ‘metallic’. Pink & Main is our sponsor.
When I saw the optional twist, I immediately thought of some of the very first cardmaking supplies I bought. Back in the day, I couldn’t afford many stamps and I think Sizzix were the only dies in town and they were totally outside my budget! So my cards used a lot of pre-made elements. I loved a lot of them and couldn’t part with them when stamping and die cutting became more accessible.
After a crazy hunt through my craft room, I eventually found my metallic embellishments in my last cupboard (isn’t that always the way?). I’d originally intended to emboss a rectangle using a die but my die cut the cardstock despite the rubber mat (I always have problems with this on my Gemini Junior). Anyway, I adapted my plan, added a piece of acetate behind the rectangle and adhered the embellishment. I finished off my card with a Clearly Besotted sentiment.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Maria, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
