Birthday Bear


Today I made a quick fun card using Stampendous stamps to play along with two challenges, Color Throwdown #386 and CAS(E) this Sketch #165.  In case you don't know what CAS and CAS(E) are, here is the definition from the CAS(E) this Sketch blog;
The acronym CAS stands for Clean and Simple.

1. Usually only one layer but can include a simple layer or two.

2. A lot of open space sometimes called "white space" can include subtle color, texture or pattern.

4. Usually no embellishments but can include something minimal. (1 or 2 embellishments)

3. Only one focal point. Embellishments should only support not dominate your card.
(Exception to this rule is that you've made the focal point an embellishment and not an image.)

5. Minimal color palette. (up to 3 colors in general)

6. Simple, uncluttered, quick and easy to create.


The acronym CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.

Here is what I used to make my card;

My Colors Cardstock-Waterside Fern, Poolside
