Calling all CAS card makers! The Perfectly CAS card blog would love for you to join in our challenges. This month our theme is Gold.
The idea behind the PCAS challenge is to use only 1/3 of the front panel in your design. This isn't always as easy as it sounds.
I've found that the use of a transparent 4.25" x 5.5"grid as an overlay is extremely useful when creating a design. The easiest way to explain my process is to determine the total number of squares on your grid and divide by three. Your finished design should use only this number of squares.
I utilized the scraps from a previous alcohol inked background to create the colors you see peeking from behind the die cut panel. I also used it for the sentiment grounding strip as well as the tiny die cut hearts. The sentiment is from a pre-printed package of foiled greetings. I popped the panel onto the white card base with some fun foam. This is an easy card to recreate and it uses almost exactly 1/3 of the squares according to my transparent overlay grid. :-)
