Home Sweet Home


 
Here's a super easy layout for you, and the formula:
 
Large print  + Large sentiment + One color =
this CAS card. (clean and simple)
 
I wanted to use a layout that was simple, to make the sentiment the main focus.
 
 
By using vellum for the sentiment, the "wallpaper" pattern can still be enjoyed. It's inked on the edges with Distress Ink, and attached with four brads.
 
A white border helps the black "chair rail" look clean and polished.
 
Striped paper from my stash of old CTMH B&T resembles bead board.
 
 
The card needed something more, so I used my Cricut to make three little hearts, and used
Platinum Liquid Pearls to dress them up.
*Ranger PLATINUM PEARL Liquid Pearls Decorative Glue LPL09719
I used a simple sentiment inside, along with some designer paper, pop-dotted to hide the brads.
 
 
Here are the challenges I am entering this card in...

Enjoy your life's journey,
