CAS Birthday Card

January 17th, 2010 · 5 Comments

CAS Birthday Card
This was just a quick, “clean & simple” (aka CAS) birthday card that I created with the colors from Verve’s January Release Color Challenge: Turquoise, Gray, and Black. I thought it was a great color combo.

The textured papers and bold images really make the card for me. I stamped the images from Fancy Florals Remixed with turquoise and black ink on white card stock and cut them out with a square Nestie. Because of their geometrical design, I’d say these florals even work for masculine cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera, You are right on both accounts: the color combination is great and it would definitely work as a masculine card. I really like how you put it together.
