The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - A Friend Like You CAS Card

Hello everyone and happy Friday!  Did you all have a Happy New Year?  Ours was pretty low key.  My husband ended up getting food poisoning a couple days before and he still wasn't feeling the best so we just stayed home.  Our youngest son had his girlfriend Lydia over so we just hung out watched some tv and had some snacks.  Like I said pretty low key--but that's ok.   

I'm looking forward to 2018 and hopefully it's better than 2017.  Thank you so much to all of my new subscribers from the Seasons Giving Blog Hop!  If you haven't left a comment on that post there is still time and I am giving away a $30 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp so I encourage you to check that out.  You can click HERE to see the post.  I asked what everyone would like to see on my blog in 2018 and watercolor came in number one!  Backgrounds, tutorials, cards and jewelry were all in the top running too.  So I will be working on some upcoming projects with watercolor to share with all of you.

If you are new to my blog I post every Friday for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  For the most part I post cards and they range from CAS (Clean And Simple) to tutorials with watercolor or ink blending backgrounds.

For today's card I went with CAS.  This card could be used as a thinking of you card but also for Valentine's.  The paper collection is from Kaisercraft - Cottage Rose.  I layered a couple pieces of the pattern paper and then added a bow down the center with May Arts Sheer with Gold Glitter ribbon.  This is some of my favorite ribbon.  It's sheer so you can still see the beautiful papers but adds just enough sparkle with the glitter.

The tag is a cut out from the same paper collection and I thought it had such a sweet sentiment.  I added a piece of white cardstock behind the tag and trimmed it to leave a nice crisp white edge around the tag.  I added some Foam Tape to the back of the tag and also a small touch of hot glue to adhere it to the card front and placed it right under the bow.  To finish off the tag I added a  Petaloo Botanica Collection Pink Minis flower to the top of the tag.

I added more foam tape to the card front and then placed that on a white A2 top folding card base.  The paper collection is filled with cut outs so you would be able to create several CAS cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed the card share.  If you would like to see more card inspiration I encourage you to take a look at the Stamp Simply Blog.  All of the supplies are listed and linked below and can be found at 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
