Curvy Flower and Field CAS Birthday Card CCS 404

by Joanne James26. January 2021 13:00

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at CAS Colours & Sketches. Today we have a sketch challenge and Jeanne has asked that we incorporate a curve into our design. Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when making your card.


Following last week's inner wrestling, for my card today I went uber clean and simple - just 4 items make today's card:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Curvy Dies - Jeanne's sketch was a gift to Curvy Dies this week! A swift run through the diecutting machine with the simple dotted edge die and my Seaside Spray panel had the necessary curve I was looking for. 

Quite Curvy - I added a birthday sentiment from the co-ordinating Quite Curvy stamp set in Tuxedo Black to my panel; it aligns to the contour of the diecut perfectly and has the bonus of being photopolymer, so is super easy to line up too.

Flower and Field - Having chosen to keep my top layer completely 'clean' (remember, 'white space' doesn't have to white in colour, just free from detail), I decided to add a little detail to the edge of my card base below with a strip of designer paper. This pattern is one of the designs in the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper pack, one of the items that can be yours FREE with a purchase of £45 during Stampin' Up!'s Sale-A-Bration promotion. The patterns in the pack are a collection of bold florals, perfect for all kinds of projects.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Just love this Joanne! You've picked out exactly the right colour from your pretty floral paper to use for your clean space. Love the die cut and the way the sentiment follows the line of the curve too. My papers are turning up tomorrow, fingers crossed!! Vicky x

I love how clean this is!  The curvy die really makes for a pretty line across the card and you’ve paired that so well with the paper.  Those florals are some of my favorites from Sal-a-Bration this year

I love the pattered paper behind the cardstock. Stamping a message in a wavy line is so perfect! Stunning!

That dotty edge curve is my favourite thing in that set. It adds elegance and style to any otherwise simple card.
