What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

It's all about the design .
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design .
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design .

Clean & Simple



Hoping you are all having a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy and Happy New Year!

Inspired by a Photo

** My card is going to Connecticut to Sandy Hook Elementary. I know it's not much but it's what we as cardmakers do. If you would like to send yours also here is the info:
Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Sandy Hook, CT. 06482

It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Lovely photo for inspiration, Denise. The candles are the obvious, but I went with the wreaths at their bases for mine.

The candles led me to this "all is bright" sentiment...MY CARD.

What a wonderful idea to send a card to Sandy Hook Elementary! Hopefully I'll be able to get going on a card a little later this morning.....

I did sit right down and make my card. I, too, made a card with a wreath. It was made out of a MS punch and liquid pearls.

When Tim Holtz says his picket fence distress marker dries opaque, he MEANS it! How to tone down the blinding white candle? Eh. Who wants to?

This is a great inspiration challenge, and I hope to get time to play along. Wouldn't this have been a good challenge for the Comfy & Cozy VSN - make a card with a candle. Sure wish I'd thought of that.

Loving all the beautiful cards with or without candles in the gallery.

CAS201 Jolly Old St. Nick
What a wonderful photo! It felt so traditional to me, I decided to do a card with a Christmas/Santa/presents theme. I couldn't forget the lovely holly and berries, so I found some dp to accentuate that element. Here's Jolly Old St. Nick
