I started with a white 8"x8" card base then added a mat of brown then custard coloured card stock.  Next I cut and embossed another piece of custard coloured card 4 times using the border die from the Australian Collection.  To the back of this card I attached a piece of double sided adhesive sheet then glittered the front with Diamond Sprinkles.  Next using the outer cutting die and the matching decorative die from the Australian Collection I attached them to the centre of the custard card and cut and embossed it.  I matted this to brown then white card, used mounting foam, to give it dimension, and attached it to the base of the card.  I cut and embossed the outer and the larger decorative die from the Australian Collection in brown card and placed it in the centre of the card to give a 'step up, step down' design.  The sentiment was stamped to a smaller piece of custard card then cut and embossed using the tag die, again from the Australian Collection.  I then cut and embossed 3 flowers, added a flat back pearl to each centre and adhered to a white bow.  To complete the design I made 2 stick pins and secured them into the knot of the bow

Second Black & Yellow

I used the same card stock and method as the previous card to create this one but with the yellow card as the more prominent colour.  I also used the Exquisite Poppy Die to create the flower and adhered it to the top left of the card and added 3 black pearls to the bottom

Black & Yellow

I created an A5 base card by folding a sheet of A4 black card in half, portrait style.  I then cut a mat of yellow card, then black card and a final mat of yellow card.  To this piece of yellow card I cut and embossed the main focal point then added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the design. The 2 layers were adhered together and mounting foam applied to the back to give dimension.  Diamond Sprinkles was applied to the front of the aperture.  I then cut and embossed a bow from the same black card using the classic bow die and again using the filigree bow die in yellow card. The bow was attached to the bottom of the layers and I completed the design with 3 black gems to the top left side of the card

I would like to add this to:
MAWTT - CAS Challenge Blog

This is my final CAS card design for MAWTT.  For some reason I'm unable to load the previous card to MAWTT hence I've designed a totally different card and hope to succeed in adding it to their blog challenge!

I blocked a border with easy lift off tape, by Creative Expressions,  on a piece of white card stock measuring 8.5" x 3".  I used 4 Ranger Distress Inks - 'Broken China', 'Mustard Seed', 'Spiced Marmalade' and 'Victorian Velvet' and using my ink dusters by Inkylicious created a subtle background.  Next, from my stash, I used a stamp by Clarity to stamp3 images (second generation stamping).  A second Clarity stamp from my stash was also stamped (second generation) as I wanted to show a few flowers and I used a ProMarker in 'Poppy' to colour the flower heads

I then created a narrow black mat for the panel and finally added this centre panel to a white card base that I had also added a narrow black mat, then white card.  Finished card measures 10"x6"

All for now...
