Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Voila One CAS Card

I am trying to make up for my silence earlier in the week and I am back with another card this morning.  I am not actually at home this morning and I have scheduled this post, so I have no idea what the weather is like today.  Is it cold and overcast or warm and sunny, what is the weather like with you today?

This CAS card may look quick and easy but it took me ages to make, in fact it was a long time in the 'thinking how to make it' phase.  First I painted some white card with metallic acrylic paints - bronze, silver, gold and copper.  I then used the Spellbinder Shapeabilities Foliage die set to cut the leaf.

Next I cut a strip of white card, I made it a little smaller than my blank card, I distressed the edges with Ranger Vintage Photo distress ink.  I then made a 'swipe' of Antique Linen and wrapped some bakers twine around the card before attaching it to the blank card.

After attaching the leaf to the card I felt the card looked incomplete and I went in hunt of a sentiment stamp, unfortunately I could not find one the size I wanted but all was not lost because I remembered my  old stash of peel offs.  There was a time I used peel offs all of the time but they went out of fashion, however like most crafters, I never throw anything away, yeah!  I finished the card by edging it with some more peel offs.

Voila one CAS card.
