AAA Cards #69-Stash Favourite

Hi All,

We have a fab new challenge at AAA Cards for you today. We are asking you to make 'Clean and Simple' cards using your stash favourite.

Here is my card:


I use butterflies quite a lot on my card so do have a few left overs in my stash and here I have used 3. I layered them up. The top one is actually wooden and has been in my stash for a long time now. I embossed the base card to give some texture and then added some clear stickers for the sentiment and the black whirl line. I am amazed how much I like this card. Stickers and wooden elements are not things I would normally use on a card plus I can't remember the last time I used this embossing plate. So I am pleased this challenge.....challenged me to step out of my comfort zone but still make me create a 'CAS' card.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Ksenija. I have been following Ksenija for a long time now and am always amazed by her creativity. Take a look at her blog, Sweet Kobylkin, and you will see what I mean!

  3. I thought it was patterned paper so I had to zoom on in. The embossing gives the card so much movement. I love how it makes it feel like the butterflies are zooming around the card.
