Week #24: STAR

We hope you got all those gifts wrapped last week because this week we're hoping you can put your feet up (at least for a little bit) and enjoy the magic of the holiday season.  Take it all in (including a deep breath)!  Reflect on the year that's about to finish and take a little time to look up at the night sky so you can wish upon a STAR!  There's a brand new year just around the corner!

The design team and this week's guest designer, Elise, have provided some inspiration that is sure to get your creativity STAR-ted!

Guest Designer:  Elise
design defined:
Repeating one image to create your focal point adds interest while keeping the design simple.

design defined:
Bold and bright colors and fun elements like washi tape are perfect for CAS designs. Just remember to keep it simple.
design defined:
To add some interest to this one layer card I replaced the 'o' in joy with a clear embossed star, tied some twine that co-ordinates with the background and adhered the panel with foam tape. Even with all of those elements the card remains CAS.
design defined:
CAS requires precise stamping - there's nowhere to hide in all that white space! Using clear stamps or a stamp positioner can help!
design defined:
Masking is a simple way to add depth to a one layer card.
design defined:
Something as simple as dry embossing & a negative die cut can come together to create a CAS card. No embellishments required.
Now go have fun and don't forget to link up your STAR creations by Sunday at noon (CST)!
