CAS202 Technique Challenge: POSTAGE (01/07/13)

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


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



Happy New Year everyone! It's good to be back, but that was a MUCH needed break for me! Onto a new year filled with new challenges, fun times and new friends! Join us!

Technique Challenge
Postage or Faux Postage

This can be interpreted many different ways besides a technique challenge...I want to see all the ways you can!

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

Check out these samples from our talented and dedicated Winter Design Team!

Good morning ladies! I completed my card using a small set I got in my Crafty Secrets prize package from the 2011 HYCCT challenge drawing. I don't exactly have postage on the card per se but made a post card of sorts!

Flying by to say Happy Birthday
Thanks for the instructions on how to link a card. I've got my fingers crossed that I did it correctly.
I interprested the postage by creating the background of a postcard. I looked at the tutorial for faux postage. It looks interesting but I'm not ready to try that yet.
Thanks for looking at Flying by to say Happy Birthday.
