Inspiration for the July Challenge - Keep It CAS

Hello Squashettes!  Gail here today.  It was going to be Jo, but Corona has grabbed her and her hubby, so you get me instead!!  Hope you both feel better soon Jo.  

Our theme this month is Keep It CAS.  Any embossing folder and a Clean and Simple creation.  I am a big fan of clean and simple and embossing folders can add a real wow to a simple design.  Today I decided to combine nature and technology.   I've used part of Cuttlebug's Bird Call embossing folder and gone slimline. 

I've used a cream DL card base and cut a white panel with Mama Elephant Scallop Stitch Slimline die.  US slimline and A4 sizes are different from european ones, but this die is easy to line up and shorten the panel to make it fit my base.   I stamped Stamplorations plane and sentiment from the Born to Roam set with black archival.  Then I embossed the top part of the Bird Call folder.   Remember, it's easier to stamp first and then emboss......

I hope you get a chance to join our Keep It Simple challenge.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

Oh no! Hope Jo and hubby aren’t laid too low and both make a swift recovery. Lovely interim card from you Gail, the trick of stamping the sentiment before embossing works really well on this.

This is so pretty and I love how you used a partial portion of the embossing folder to create this CAS scene! Great card!
