New Heights - CAS

9/04/2016: This card is a Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers!

Making masculine cards is always enjoyable for me, perhaps because there are plenty of men in my family. CAS cards are sometimes a challenge and I like keeping masculine cards CAS.

A panel of designer paper with a photo depicting a forest scene was adhered to a panel of black cardstock then to a panel of green print designer paper, all adhered to a white card base. The sentiment was stamped and adhered with dimensional foam tape.  The inside of the card was decorated with a leaf stamp. Click on the photos for a closer view.
