CAS-ual Fridays #94


Get out your sunglasses!  I'm sharing a card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to use chipboard on your clean and simple design.  Play along and you'll have a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, too!



I have lots of old sets of chipboard letters from my scrapbooking days, including a set from Making Memories in black, red, yellow, and pink.  I chose this pair of brackets to frame a sentiment from Truth Is, adding texture to the white border with PTI's Linen & Canvas impression plate.

For the accents, I die cut small circles from a chipboard coaster, covered them with white cardstock, and stamped them with flowers from Loving Thoughts.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Daffodil Delight), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  CAS-ual Fridays Stamps (Truth Is, Loving Thoughts)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Real Red), Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Linen & Canvas impression plate), WPlus9 Design Studio (Lacey Layers die), corner rounder
Accessories:  Making Memories (chipboard), Papertrey Ink (coaster)

I hope you have plenty of real sunshine in your part of the world today, and not just the bright yellow cardstock variety.  :)

Have a great weekend!
