CAS Quartet

I started playing with the flowers of the Alexandra Renke Welcome Butterfly set ... and I ended up with four cards!

I wasn't sure what I was going to do so I stamped 2 sets of the flower with leaf, and the 2 individual flowers.  The flowers had two tones of inks : started with the pale pink, then dabbed on a darker shade to the centre.

I like the curve of the flowers and leaf and thought it would look good along a frame.  I wanted to keep it light so used 2 of the Alexandra Renke Oval Angular frames.

The second card was inspired by the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. I wanted the bigger flower and cut out the leaves of the flower & leaf images.

Now that I had that little flower with 2 little leaves left ... and a tiny piece of ric rac ribbon, thought it was perfect for the CAS(e) This Sketch Challenge.

All I had left now was one big and 2 little flowers. Used the middle piece left over from the lace frame and added 2 die cut leaves.

  10. How beautiful are you cards! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!

  11. I love the cards -- I am especially enamored by the one with the Alexandra Renke oval angular frames. I don't know how you got that. When I look at the frames it looks like hey would have to be much wider or does each of the dies make skinny frames? Thanks for your feedback

    1. The frames are so skinny! That’s why I live them. If you want something light, they’re the best!

  12. All the cards look absolutely elegant. Thank you for joining the AAA Cards Challenge.
