The card above is actually the card that I created with the left-overs from my original card (below), but the CAS look is really making me happy! Sigh! All I did was adhering my die cut sentiment (Winnie & Walter) to a white panel that I had cut using my favourite stitched rectangle die (SSS) and adding a few strips that I was left with after trimming down my panel for the card below. I stacked the panel with another die cut panel before adhering it to my cardbase and added a few sequins (Pretty Pink Post, Sharing Kindness mix) to finish off.
For my original card below, I started by stamping the Hero Arts Lotus background stamp in distress oxide ink (Broken china) and then heat embossing in clear (HA) embossing powder. I then blended two colours of distress ink (Twisted citron and Tumbled glass) before trimming down the panel and die cutting the Hello sentiment. I also die cut the sentiment from blue Core'dination cardstock and glued it into the aperture before adhering 2 stacked die cuts with a thread nest on top, making sure to leave a slight blue shadow at the top.
I also finished off this card with a few PPP sequins.
