It's a C-A-S Thing...



I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.....I’m guessing that mine is fun at the moment-I am in Las Vegas with my Sister. (so you know I pre did this post...hehe)
For today’s challenge I used the new Occupation Bears stamp set.

I totally had my girlfriend in mind when I made this card...she decided to go to school about 3 years ago now....and I am so proud of the strength she possesses (and always has).

I have to admit I was a bit stumped when I found out we were having a Clean and Simple Challenge...I love layers and always have, and who doesn’t love tons of embellishments right???  But I totally lucked out as I had a magazine sitting on my desk (it’s a couple months old) and low and behold if my inspiration wasn’t right on the front cover...so I totally cased it (I like being honest..lol).


I coloured up this adorable nurse bear using my Copics and then I used an oval punch as a stencil to trace out the sentiment bubble and all I did was draw on a little point. Then I went ahead and cut it out by hand and ink the edges with Old Paper Distress Ink. I then went ahead and finished the card off by using 3D foam squares to pop up the image and the sentiment and finally I tied on a piece of white/ pink Baker’s Twine.....and voila C-A-S.
