Now that's just crazy talk, so I decided to see how opposite I could be while still being CAS. Boy, howdy! Thanks to Susan R. Opal, I NAILED this challenge.
First, my card.
Here's the list of things I did that are the opposite of what I normally do.
- Colored card base...only a tiny slip of white card stock (you have no idea how hard that was!)
- Masking (it's not hard, but I'm lazy)
- Cutting and piecing the popped envelope together (trickier than I supposed)
- Big bow (on those rare occasions I use ribbon, I don't make bows!)
- No bling or shimmer or shine of any kind--Eeeek!
- Whimsy (to pun or not to pun...visually)
- Purple (definitely not a go-to color for me)
- Music (y'all have never heard me sing...for a reason)
- A challenge other than One-Layer Simplicity!
Isn't her card so sweet? I just love that sentiment. I stole the bow and the layout, which may be too much, all things considered, to enter my card in the SOS Challenge. Just not sure it's "original" enough. But really, I had so much fun making my version of her card!
In keeping with the challenge, I used all old supplies: the SU card stock, Hero Arts clear stamp set, and ribbon are all at least 4-5 years old. Even Susan's card comes from an old issue of Stamp-It Challenges.
So that was lots of fun! And now I can't wait to make a white-based, one-layer card and get back to normal.
