Guest Designer Amy Tsuruta - Part1

Hello crafty peeps,

wednesday ist guest-day. As you all now the wonderful, talented, kind Amy Tsuruta is our guest this month. You can read her intro here.

Today Amy has a beautiful CAS card to share with you. (Btw: Did you notice that CAS is also the shortcut for Create A Smile? I love it!).
She used Your View to create this little scene. What I love most about this card are the distressed edges and how she stamped the sentiment onto a tiny tag.

I think those little details have a big impact - especially on CAS cards that are all about the details. Coloring the hat in pink and adding some pink twine pulls it all together!

Let's talk about details on CAS cards, what are your favorite ones? I like to use
- (drops of) glossy accents
- Wink of stella
- wood veneers
- vellum (White or colored, torn or cut)
- enamel dots

I really don't use a lot of embellishments, but just a tiny but to give some interest to a card. I know, I've said that a couple of times, but I really prefer cards that have some detail to touch and feel. :)

Maybe you would like to see us use a certain type of embellishment - what would you like to see?
Are there any embellishments that you love but have a hard time using? (It's flairs for me! Love them, but have a hard time incorporating them to cards).
Let's chat about it ;) You can leave a message here or over on our Facebook-page

Have a nice day, thanks for stopping by and leaving Amy some love! :)
