CAS-ual Fridays Tic-Tac-Toe and Lawnscaping CAS

This week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge is a fun little game of Tic-Tac-Toe!


I used this challenge to FINALLY get my friend's wedding card done. It's late, but it would have been late no matter what since it has to go all the way to Japan.

I chose the middle column: gems, dies/punches and flowers. I tried to get the card to flow with the theme of her invitation.


The card base is made with the exterior sheet sent with the invitation; a beautifully textured paper. I had to reinforce the inside a bit since it was rather flimsy.

The leaves are from PTI's Turning a New Leaf die. I inked the edges a bit with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink. The flowers are die cut from PTI's Beautiful Blooms #1. To add some interest on the white blooms, I stamped some flowers from Sending You with Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder. It gives it a fun shimmery effect, which you can see better here:


For the sentiment panel, I die cut and stamped Fillable Frames #4 in Versamagic Pixie Dust ink. The sentiment is from Mega Mixed Messages and stamped in Memento New Sprout.

The current Lawnscaping challenge is all about CAS cards and so I'll be submitting this there as well. I love CAS challenges! Maybe I'll try again... with some Lawn Fawn stamps this time! ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
