Bundling Up CAS Style

The latest Jingle Belles challenge is "All Bundled Up" - use 3 or more layers.  Well that is a real challenge for me as I prefer more CAS cards, so I decided to do a CAS Card with three layers on top of the card base.


I have a stitched die cut layer with my sentiment on it, then a narrow green border layer, and then my image layer.

The image is stamped on watercolour paper and coloured with my Gansai Tambi paints.  I've added tiny red gemstones for the holly berries.

I hope this CAS version qualifies for the Jingle Belles challenge!!

It should definitely fit the AAA CAS challenge "Christmas in July" so I'm linking it up there too.







Supplies:
Stamps - Memory Box bird, A Muse sentiment
Ink - Archival Jet Black
Paper - white and green cs, watercolour paper
Size - A2
Accessories - Gansai Tambi paints, red gemstones, Lil Inker stitched rectangle die

  1. Beautiful watercoloring, Susan! I particularly love the soft wash you added to the background, something I've had little success with. Yours is so well done. Fantastic CAS card.

  9. CAS with layers is such an oxymoron, but you accomplished it! Sweet card, Susan. Beautiful colouring once again. The red gem stones are a nice touch. xx

  10. oh WOW! yes, you totally pulled off a completely CAS card that's still got three layers, fair and square! i am really impressed by that and it's an awesome addition to our "all bundled up" gallery at JINGLE BELLES! ♥

  12. Great example of CAS with laeyrs ... the faux stitching is the perfect touch to add visual interest to the white-on-white ... so glad you helped us *bundle-up* at Jingle Belles.
