CAS56: It's Hip to Be Square! (3/1/10)
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

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

It's a new season of CAS challenges! And today we welcome 3 new design team members and one guest designer! Welcome to the DT: Carly, Kelly, & Alanna! And WooHoo for our first GD: Diane

Today's CAS challenge is to make a square card. My card measures 4.25 square. (I use 4.5 A Muse envelopes.) You may make any size square card you would like!

Keyword: CAS56

DT samples to help you get started with ideas:

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!
