Sweet & Simple

I know there are thousands of beautiful cards out there that each took hours to make, and I am in awe of the detail that goes into them, but lately I have been leaning towards a more simple approach to card making. I have found that by setting out to make CAS (clean and simple) cards, I am able to make more at a time, thus building my stash of cards. For this card I used the Stampin' Up Wheel "Friendly Words". I love this wheel because it is so versatile! The red glitter embossed heart and the Valentine sentiment are from the SU set " A Happy Heart".

This is another CAS card using the retired SU set "Happy Heart Day". The embossed hearts were made using my Fiskars texture plates and Cuttlebug. I love that cute elephant!

And last but not least this card was made using the SU Level 3 Hostess set called "The More the Merrier", and the sentiment is from the SU set "Grateful Greetings". The scalloped heart border was made using my Cricut Expression. I love it when I can find the perfect matching ribbon! Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that I can inspire you to make CAS cards. Have a wonderful week!

I just love these cards. Many times I strive to make "Clean and Simple" cards, but end up somewhere else! Thanks for sharing them!

I really like CAS cards, I think a lot of times we are giving cards to non crafters who won't appreciate the hours and layers etc, and they will enjoy a simple card just as much, plus they are usually easier to mail since they are often less bulky. These are all so pretty.

What darling cards! I want to try to make more CAS cards too. Sometimes I don't know when to stop and add too many details.
