Let’s Celebrate


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week our May challenge hostess Shirley Quarry, continues to bring us a fun challenge.

For our challenge this week Shirley has given us to make a CAS card with scraps.

Hope this is a CAS card … I had started to make another card which got way out of control, so I decided to use that for something else and try something else. I used scraps of designer paper which I cut down to various widths … 1/2 cm; 1 cm; 1.5cm and then attached them to the card on an angle. This would also be great using washi tape which I didn’t use seeing washi tape isn’t scraps … so I will have to make another one soon using washi tape instead.

The sentiment in the centre of the card is from My Favorite Things Birthday Sentiments stamp set. The base of my card is Sweet Tooth cardstock and the layered piece is Paver Red cardstock.


Here is the inside of my card. I added a few more strips of designer paper along the bottom half of my card and then stamped the sentiment at the top part. The sentiment is also from the My Favorite Things Birthday Sentiments stamp set.

Here are the MFT Products I used on my card today:

Very cool CAS card, Frances. My first thought was Washi. Scraps or Washi, it's great.

I can see that it would work wonderfully with washi tape (and you wouldn't need to get the glue or tape out), but I must say it looks fantastic in your paper scraps too. The colours and design make for a great masculine card.
