Your card must include some stamping, at least one die-cut, and then one or more of the "your choice" options listed on the right hand side of the CAS Mix Up blog.
For my card for the Design Team, I chose dry embossing, gilding flakes, and heat embossing for "my choice".
I covered a piece of cs with sook wang tape, removed the protective layer, and covered with gilding flakes.
I die cut the bird on the branch and added it to a dry embossed background. The branch is stuck down flat but the bird is popped up with a bit of foam tape.
I cut another piece of the gilding flake covered cs as a border. It seemed a shame to hide all of that lovely piece behind my focal image so I cut a square out of the middle of it and set it aside for a future project. I cut the same size square out of a scrap of cs and filled in the gap so that it had substance behind the dry embossed piece.
My stamping is a simple heat embossed sentiment.
You have until June 24th to join in and add your card (remember to keep it CAS!)
to the challenge. There is some wonderful inspiration from my fellow Design Team members and our Featured and Guest Designers.
