I Carrots Your Birthday!


Hi everyone,

Yes it is Saturday! So it’s time for another challenge with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Our challenge hostess Tammy Hershberger is continuing to challenge us this month!

Our challenge is …. One-Layer CAS – cards with the base of the card as the only “layer” today! Only exception is cutting out images and/or one die-cut embellishment.

Now CAS cards are definitely a challenge for me and one-layer CAS cards even more of a challenge … I normally hate the cards I create when I have to make them for challenges. But I must say, this is the happiest I have ever been when I have finished making a one-layer card. I used Kraft card as the base of my card and as we were allowed to cut out an image, I stamped my rabbit on both my Kraft base and some white card and cut out the white piece and adhered it over the Kraft base image. I kept everything flat which is something I normally don’t do either. I scored some lines at the top and right side of the card and added a sentiment.


Here is the inside of my card .. the basket of carrots was included in the stamp set with the rabbit, but the sentiment I used on my card was one I found in my stash I didn’t know I had until I went looking for a sentiment in my stamp catalogue … it’s one I got from Hambo Stamps years ago, it works so well with that rabbit don’t you think?

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
