Hi, Friends.....
 
I am back with another card for the Winnie & Walter WCMD Challenges There is still a little bit of time to enter before things close up tomorrow, so please join us!!!
 
This time I made a CAS style card.......not the easiest for me!!  But it wasn't that hard this time because I was using some wonderful Winnie & Walter products: the W&W - In a Word: Happy Cutaway die, and the W&W - Scenery: Big Bang Confetti and W&W Bigger Bang Confetti stamp set.  (That last one was a limited edition and apparently no longer available....too bad because I LOVE it for coordinating with the other size!).


I am quite proud that my Clean and Simple style card is allllllllllllmost one layer!  Ha. 

For this card, I first figured out where I wanted my Happy die cut to go.  Then I stamped the graduated sizes of stars from both of the W&W sets with Versamark ink using my mini-Misti......in case I needed to restamp them....which I did!  :)  I heat embossed them twice with silver powder.  Yum!

Then I used my Distress Ink color chart to find which color best matched my Happy die cut......Blueprint Sketch was nearly spot on!  I smooshed some of it onto an acrylic block and misted with water to make random splatters on my card.  You can see this process in this "craftie" shot.
 
Finally, I adhered the Happy die cut and my card was complete!  Yay!  This was a super-fun one to make....and easy, once I got the design nailed down.  It would be simple to replicate and I think it could be used for a variety of occasions when I need a masculine card.
 
Hope you enjoyed seeing it. I'll be back later today with at least one more card for the Winnie & Walter WCMD Challenges.  See you then!!!!
