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!
always the last cupboard 😉 great way to use older supplies and the metallic twist
I agree it is always the last cupboard. Your card is beautiful, love the metallic embellishment.
Fabulous! Love how you’ve added the metallic twist, it defeated me! And yes always the last place or sometimes it’s back to the first place and look again more carefully with me!
Stunning card!! WOW!!
