Forever Friends


Ooh I do struggle to make CAS cards. I don't find them simple at all. I have the idea in my head but when I make it I think it looks too plain. I've used an old Forever Friends stamp along with some old Forever Friends paper. The image has been coloured with Promarkers. I added a glitter frame by using double sided tape. The image has been fussy cut and stuck with glue gel to stand out. The sentiment is an LOTV stamp. I envisaged the card wit no embellishments but I didn't like it at all so I added 2 wooden shapes coloured with DI Wild Honey. Still too simple for my taste but I have another idea for a CAS card so watch this space.
