Get Creative a month full of challenges - CAS card challenge!

Good morning!!!

Have you heard???

At Get Creative we were so ecstatic with the participation in our October card challenges that we are going to start off the year with another month of challenges!!! So here is how it is going to go... Every couple of days a new challenge will be set by one of the design team. The challenges will be for cards and layouts - it will be specified in the challenge. All challenge entries have to be uploaded by January 31st. You can enter as many times as you like in as many challenges as you like. The winner of each challenge will be chosen by the design team and the winner's prize will be...

Guest designer on Get Creative for the entire month of March!!

It doesn't end there... all the participants of the challenges will be then placed in the random generator and one lucky winner will win a fabulous prize from Sfragidomania!

So today it's my turn to start the card challenges with a really "simple" challenge. So the challenge is to make a CAS card, ie "Clean and Simple" card!

I'm sure most of you know what this is, but in case you wonder...

Clean and Simple cards are the ones who have clean sketches, clean lines, minimal and smart embellishments, "white spaces" (spaces that do not have any images, embellishments, layers)... The cards however can have colour, pattern papers, embellishments... they just have to be used in a smart way!

I have prepared three cards so that you get an idea and (hopefully!) a bit of inspiration.

The first card has quite enough white space, almost one layer (the sentiment is an additional layer), on stamp that was coloured with distress inks, water and pencil.

The second card has clearly one focal point, without any embellishments other than the frame that was drawn by hand.

And the third card has again enough open spaces (they don't have to be white, they can be whatever in colour you like), discreet embellishments with just a bit of sewing and black marker.

I hope you like them and they can inspire you to make your own cards! Just come over to Get Creative to share them with us!

Hugs, Anastasia-Natasa
