June - CAS Mix Up Challenge - Reminder



Hi there, crafty friends ~
I was asked to be Guest Designer for the June CAS Mix Up Challenge, and I'm back with a mid-challenge reminder! As the winner of the April challenge, I received some gorgeous copper die cuts from Loll, so I thought it would be fun to use one of them on my card: 


My apologies for the glare...this is the best photo I was able to get. I love the simplicity of this sprig, and the impact of the copper is amazing in person. To fulfill the parameters of this challenge, I kept the design CAS, stamped the sentiment with Versamark, sprinkled it with copper EP (my choice), and centered the copper die cut. The panel is cut slightly smaller than the card base, and placed with foam tape to add dimension. 

I hope you'll be able to find the time to check out this month's CAS Mix Up Challenge, and play along...the challenge will be open until June 24th, so there's still plenty of time!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

A beautiful CAS, with loads of color & dimension. Love these copper twigs (and yes this is a photo challenge). I've tried with the heated copper, and have yet to get a result this stunning. Well done, and well deserved at being a CAS Mix Up Guest Designer! TFS & Hugs.
