AC Paper Pad Saga Continues...


Birdie Brown/Sweet Stampin'/Addicted to CAS Challenges
 All cards use paper from an American Crafts paper pad.  I have challenged myself to use papers from this pad until it's gone (leave no scrap behind!).

Card 1:  Uses an image from Birdie Brown for her November Challenge.  I am also going to link it up to Sweet Stampin' Challenge as the theme is Snow People.  Also, there is a new challenge site: Addicted to CAS that requires few embellishments and lots of "white space".  With only one embellishment I think this card qualifies.  Their code word is Snow.

Card 2:  I used a Bugaboo Digi Stamp.  I chose one that could be turned in a love themed card for OWH if needed.

OWH #147
Card 3: I saw this sketch and knew it would be perfect for a CASE of one of Dixie's cards (Thanks Dixie!) that uses a banner die. My pad had an extra print on the other side of the perforated edge. When I was cutting the paper awhile back, I realized it would be perfect for this look. I normally would mat with black cardstock for some real pop, but gasp, I ran out. My delivery person (i.e. sister) has not dropped off a new pack for me. The sentiment is computer generated by me.

I did learn one thing from the 6x6 tutorial; I should not cut all the pad up in case I get bored with a sketch.  I had to find a matching red paper for card 3 because I did not have any pieces big enough for the sketch.
