This is true. A clear concise thought is more powerful than a verbose statement. And a CAS card often makes a stronger impression than one with many layers and embellishments. Not that I favor one over the other. It depends on what mood I am in. I mean I am a Gemini with that dual nature and attraction to opposites. I have been intrigued with cards that are white on white with the only color coming with the focal point. I thought the latest Just Us Girls challenge to use dry embossing would be a great time to use this plan. I pulled out some of my metal stencils, light box, and stylus along with an impression plate.
Country Stencils. This company has some lovely designs. If you are a quilter and attend quilting shows, you may see a Country Stencils booth; if so, be sure to stop and check out their products. Of course you can also order online.
After embossing, I stenciled the image using Lavender Moon dye ink and Spring Moss pigment ink. Use stiff bristled brushes and blot brush on a paper towel, so that the brush is fairly dry before stenciling.
Next I added the rick rack border which I ran through the Cuttlebug with the impression plate after I cut it with PTI's rick rack die. Finally, I attached the panel to the card base.
I like the light summery mood of this card.
