In a continual effort to challenge myself with the CAS style of cards, I wanted to play along with the the challenge at Less is More Week #80 to make a One Layer card with a theme of Fur or Feathers. By Jove - I think I've finally done it! I think I've finally created a One-Layer CAS card, and one that I actually like :o) I tried the masking technique (another technique that I want to get better at) so I stamped the hat first - and then put my mask over it so I could stamp the bird. My hat mask slipped a little when I stamped the bird (note to self - next time use dotto to hold the mask down) and it covered a teeny bit of the rim of the birthday hat - so I stamped it one more time separately and snipped out just the rim of the birthday hat and glued it on top of the stamped one. I didn't expect it to go perfectly the first time but it was darn close and I was very pleased - whoo hoo :o)
I am also entering this card in the ATS Theme Challenge #2 - Cards for Boys. I have a brother-in-law who is having a birthday next week. I know he will appreciate this card as he is a silly kind of guy who is always joking around and using puns. I think I was in a silly mood when I created this card :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today! I hope you enjoyed today's One Layer CAS card.
Details and Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock base - Whisper White. I used my SU Color Coach to come up with this creative combo of Midnight Muse (NEW), More Mustard and Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment is from Curly Cute - I used SU markers to color the words separately and only colored "day" in the word birthday to put next to the bird. The bird and his party hat are from the stamp set called Papaya Collage.
