Recycled CAS Cards
Hello, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: recycle something.
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is: CAS, showcasing Hero Arts Products.
I recycled one of the shop bought Christmas cards I got last year (not last Christmas, they're still on display :-D).
Anyway I would never touch those beautiful handmade ones and they have they're own keep safe container.
For the first card I had an option of 4, almost went with the gold bird, but that was actually too pretty .
So I chose this windowed one, and cut our a circle, trying to include the sentiment, but it didn't fit completely so I just chopped off the edge and placed the circle off centre for more interest.
But first I used the Simon Says Stamp retro Deer die to cut out a silhouette.
For the Hero Arts bit I stamped the Classic Christmas Borders with Memento Sky Blue ink in the bottom, this instead of Merry Christmas and there's a sentiment already, albeit a Dutch one.
For the second card I used the Retro Deer I now have left over. I glued him onto a stitched circle I diecut from Craft card.
Mounted the circle with foam tape.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Color Layered Deer. I found out I'm not very good at lining those up ;-). I've used Distress Oxides Iced Spruce to stamp the sentiment onto a grey/green card base. Added a red rhinestone for a pop of color and I know Rudolph is not a deer, but hey .artistic freedom? haha.
