BGC#50" BACK TO CAS + COLOUR CHANGE with ANETA


Hello, followers of our challenge blog!

Today is my turn to show you my card in the newest challenge on CAS + black and gold.
I prepared my card for special occasion - my father's name-day. I know, that the tradition of the name-day isn't popular in other countries. It's strongly connected with the main religion in our country - catholicism. Name-day is celebrated mostly by the older people, young people celebrate birthday.

What's more, my card is an effect of my play with my little daughter. I cut butteflies for her to play and then I used the remains for my card. :-)



Supplies:
white cardstock
black cardstock
golden cardstock
sentiment-sticker
adhesive stones
golden marker
puncher


In the end the small reminder of the rules of our challenge:
1. Make a CAS Card (cards Only) . 
    By CAS we mean Clean And Simple having more empty space than the elements on it.
2. Twist - Should Include the colours Gold and Black

I think the challenge is pretty easy peasy this time but yes we want to see CAS... sometimes we get so engrossed in filling up spaces that we lose the essence or the meaning of what we want to say.

Now this is the card I made for the challenge


The card I have made is a 6 inch sqaure. I have used black cardstock for layering. Though I know many crafter's are comfortable using thinner paper for layering, I personally like the strength of a heavy cardstock. What do you use for layering? Do let me know....

When I started out working on this card I first had the sentiment in mind. and I decided to work around it.


Its a Just Rite stamp set having exactly the right sentiments you need for any occasion. 

Keeping in mind the addition of gold , I decided to do glitter stars... I diecut the stars using my Cuttlebug (yes I am using cuttlebug... sounds ancient ... a friend told me)... But somehow the glittery stars just did not fit in ...

So again I went searching for Gold Cardstock and got some really nice stars this time... and a matte gold... looked wow...

To add that touch of Sparkle and dimension to the card i used Black glitter foam and cut 1/4" strips and simply pasted below the sentiment. 


I love how the card looked overall and so I did make one more in a different colour combination. Will share that on my personal blog. 

I hope you all enjoy this challenge... We want you to work around the sentiment . Keep it simple and yet get the message through...
