CAS with Panda

Hello crafty friends,

I am here today to share some love on CAS cards

I love to make one layer card. It’s really fun focusing on the basics of cardstock, stamps, ink, and very little else to create cards. But CAS one layer card doesn't mean that it's easy to make sometimes but requires attention to detail, right?

For today's card, I created a stenciled background with weave pattern stencil from Expression stamps and distress inks by a blending tool. Stamped the panda wish stamp from expression stamps and fussy cut the image and adhered to the cardbase with 3D foam to give it a dimension. Sentiment is from the same stamp collection. Finished off my card by adding sequins

That’s all for today. Hope you loved my card and got some inspiration to try your own.

Supplies List:
1. Expression Stamp -Panda Wish
2. Expression Stencil - Weave Pattern
3. Ranger Distress Inks - Abandoned Coral
4. Blending tool & Stamping block
5. Sequins
