A CAS bird card

Usually my style consists of cards with lots of layers.  Recently I have seen lots of CAS (clean and simple) cards as people are taking part in the online CAS class.  I saw Sue's post with her lovely bird CAS card which she is entering in the Less is More Week 50 - One layer bird challenge.  I struggle with having lots of white space on the card, but thought I should have ago.  I liked the idea of making something for the Less is More challenge, but the only bird stamp I could find was a very small one.  The stamp is from Inkadinkado clear stamps Garden flower (97616). Hopefully it still counts.  I stamped it many times until I came up with something I was reasonably happy with.  Here are two cards to show you.  The first one I will enter in the challenge.

Card No.1
CAS bird card No 1

Card No. 2
CAS bird card No 2

After looking at some of the other cards in the Less is More challenge, I saw a card featuring an owl.  I suddenly realised that I have some owl stamps from The Craft's Meow so perhaps I will have to try and make another CAS creation.

The CAS online card class still goes for another week and  it can be done at anytime, although I know that doing it now at the same time as others is probably better.  Perhaps I should look at taking part and learn some new techniques for CAS cards.  I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on my two cards.

Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Hello Angela
    You will notice I have had two attempts already to post a comment. I was just blown away that I had actually inspired you to make these two gorgeous cards. Thank you so much for you visit and your comments, your little bird is lovely.

  4. Oh Angela I love your entry... Love the drama of the wee bird in black against the lighter colours of the green and blue. I too have struggled with a card for this challenge!!

  5. Lovely Angela. You did well with your tiny bird... the flower going round it, looks superb.

  6. What a lovely delicate stamp. Of these two versions I prefer the first one as the colour of the sentiment doesn't detract from taking the eye directly to that dear little brown bird.
    Thanks so much

  7. very prety card - love the bird stamp

  8. Beautiful card, I prefer the sentiment in blue s the bird draws you eye into the design, whereas the dark sentiment detracts, I
    Many thanks

  9. Thanks for your comment. The sentiment with the blue is my preferred one too.
