I am the hostess for the new Crafty Friends Challenge. Since I have been on a CAS card kick lately, I thought it would be fun if that was my challenge to do. Create a clean and simple card.

I created my card a while ago for a Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I started with a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, folded in half. The top right and bottom left corners were rounded and the background stamp from Simon Says Stamp exclusive Music 2 My Ears stamp set was stamped on the left hand side in Key Lime VersaMagic Ink.

More white cardstock was cut with one of the Holiday Labels dies. Two of the Hexagons were stamped with the snowflake hexagon from the Holiday Labels stamp set in Turquoise Gem VersaMagic Ink, on with the Hexagon outline stamp. The hexagons were adhered over the stamped background. A snowflake was cut out of white cardstock with the Faceted Snowflake die, topped with a button that was tied on with silver cord and adhered to the empty hexagon.

Blue Calipso Fourz Bazzill cardstock was cut with the Snowflake Bracket die and adhered to the right hand side next to the Hexagons. A sentiment from the Holiday Label set was stamped in Ocean Depth VersaMagic ink to the lower left corner. Rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestone pack finish off the card.

Check out my fellow Crafty Friends for more  inspiration:

    Thanks so much for looking! I hope you have time to join us in the challenge. It’s easy and fun! Come back Monday and Tuesday for more CAS inspiration!!!  Have a wonderful week!
    Hugs and smiles
