Oval All Note Cards

Happy Weekend....I know, it's coming to a close, where did it go?? It was beautiful! A bit chilly, but the sun was out all weekend and I got the yard mowed....oh I love the smell of fresh cut grass.

My Oceans 11 Blog roll does a challenge just about every week, and this week the challenge was CAS= Clean and Simple. This is certainly a challenge for me since I love to add flowers, embellishments and bling :)

I used the new Oval All stamp set from the Occasions mini...I can't wait to get the new oval scallop punch, but in the mean time...keeping it CAS, I used the Eyelet punch which I think added just what I needed to make it pretty.

The certainly celery that you see hanging out of the bottom is actually an inside (front) layer of the card, it hides the inside of the ribbon as well. I didn't want to create a bow on the front...that wouldn't be CAS...lots of thought has to go into a CAS card...oh the pressure!

The cards are 3x3 which is perfect since I have little envelopes for them to go into. I made one of each of the stamps so I have: "Thank You", "Best Wishes", "Fabulous Friend" & "Just For You".
Set: Oval All
Accessories: Certainly Celery & Whisper White cardstocks, Eyelet Border Punch, Large Oval Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Certainly Celery Twill, Certainly Celery Ink.

You did a wonderful job with the challenge! These came out so elegant. (And I love the smelly of freshly mown grass too!)

Great CAS card. I still haven't done mine yet. I understand the desire to want to put embellishments and bling on cards too, but this turned out so pretty that it doesn't need anything else.
