Citrus CAS

Hi and Good Morning Everyone :)

Back today with a card I made for the Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog

Well I was feeling bright and summery when I made this card, and I also fancied a bit of a challenge!  I dont do CAS very often (or very well!) and I also never play with orange!  So this ticks both of my 'out of my comfort zone' boxes. lol.

I started out with a 6 x 6 inch scalloped blank card base and layered First Edition papers onto white American Crafts Cardstock.

I then placed the Dutch Scalloped Square frame over my dotty paper and then added the scalloped square and square die cuts.  I cut the gorgeous Sophias Heart mini doily for my centrepiece and added the sentiment on top.  For a finishing touch I made 2 daisies from the Daisy Flower strip and topped off with a little card candi.


All dies used on this card are:

DL140 - Dutch Scallop Square
DL238 - Sophias Heart Mini Doily
XL-2 - Scalloped Stackers Square
L-1 - Classic Silver Square Stackers
XM-5 - Scalloped Circle
XM-4 - Circles
B259 - Daisy Strip.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I will absolutely be trying to pop along and catch up this week!

Have a smashing week,

Hey you! Love this one! That square doily die is beautiful and the orange and white combo is really clean and fresh. Hope you are OK, sweetie - sending love and hugs xxx

Love the way the soft oranges of the patterned papers are accented by your bright card candi & the terrific crispness of the white contrast. The inner doily echoes the edging of the square scallops beautifully.

Hi Alison, My word, for being out of your comfort zone you are one fierce woman. This card is simply gorgeous!!! I love the simple line of it yet the beauty is just stunning... I think you are a very talented lady and I always enjoy coming over and seeing what you are up to. I think I have mentioned it before, but it is because of you that I have found a new respect for my dies and tend to go towards using them more on my cards than I ever have before. I bet when little punches came out your were one of those girls that could make a masterpiece out of just a couple different shape. :O) Anyway, I love the orange of this card and all the elements in between. Hope you have a great weekend. Hugs, Lisa G
