CAS28 - Masculine Cards (8-17-09)
What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.

1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it.

2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique

3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques

4. any combination of the above

************************************************** *******

Now on with the show!

This week we are making masculine cards. It looks like our stalkers guessed correctly. LOL!

If you haven't seen the new CAS design team search thread, you can find it in the CAS sub-forum here.

Keyword: CAS28

DT samples to help you get started with ideas:

Ann's Card

Harriet's Card

Lisa's Card

Jen's Card

Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

It's always a challenge to come with masculine cards. It's double the fun when they are so quick to make. I feel like I get so much more done at the end of the day. I'm going to get stamping and make a few more today to have on hand. Thanks for the great challenge. Here's mine


Aimes 08-17-2009 05:19 AM

Well I've had to make 2 masculine cards this week and I find them SO tough! LOL! However, I've found that adopting the CAS style really suits the masculine theme! I hope you like my card!

Here is my card.

luvs2stamp2 08-17-2009 05:43 AM

You guys are all so talented. Been looking at all your cards. Now it's time for me to figure out what I'm going to do. Male cards are always hard for me as well.
