Have a Great Day!

The current challenge theme for A Blog Named Hero is "As Clean and Simple as Can Be." I think this card is about as CAS as you can get. Certainly as CAS as I have ever gotten! LOL

I started my card by die cutting a panel from white cardstock with the largest of Lawn Fawn's "Large Stitched Rectangle" dies. I adhered that to the front of a white A2 card base, then die cut a circle from the front of the card with one of the "Stitched Circles" dies by Simon Says Stamp. I then stamped the greeting, from Hero Arts' "Joy Ride" set, on the inside of the card, so it is visible through the die cut window.

To create some interest on the front of the card, and help break up all that white space, I used Hero Arts' "Tweed Pattern" stencil and some Golden Molding (modeling) Paste. I first masked off the edges of the card front outside the faux stitching, and masked the greeting with a piece of a Post It note. Then I taped the stencil on top of the card front, and spread the paste over the stencil, being careful to avoid covering the faux stitching around the circle window. I did have to scrape a little paste from around the window after I finished, but it wasn't too bad. Finally, I set that aside to dry. And that finished this card!

I'm also entering this card in a2z Scrapbooking's "Texture" challenge.
