A CAS Card and some Crochet

Day 7 of the online CAS Card Making Class is entitled, Plainly White. Julie Ebersole demonstrated how to use the expanse of white space on a card to your advantage.

I made the flower accent this afternoon so tonight I decided to pop it onto a clean and simple card that demonstrated some of the techniques from day 7.

If you've been following my journey, you'll realise I have skipped a few days of class in my blog posts as I haven't had a lot of time to keep up with my 'homework' this week. The good thing is, I have access to it 'forever' and that's a relief because there are SO many more ideas and techniques that I want to play around with in the near future.

Plainly White

I used Confetti White Card Stock as it needed to match the off white colour in the flower.

Flower Accent

Not having done any crocheting for a few months, I went around to a friend's place and got another lesson today. I was a bit rusty but was able to get this little flower finished to pop on a card (Thanks Andrea :)

I found the pattern at Crochet and Other Stuff via Pinterest. The pattern is for a three layered flower but I only did two and used different colours.

Project Details:

Stamp Sets: Creative Elements, Precious Butterflies (both SU)
Card Stock: Confetti White (SU)
Ink: Old Olive, Marina Mist (SU)
Accessories: Moda Vera SOMBRE 100% Organic Cotton - Blue and Cream (Spotlight), 3 mm crochet hook, Mini Paper Blooms (Kaiser Craft), Dimensional

It was quite a productive day to combine two craft loves and actually use an idea from Pinterest!

PS: This was named as a CAS favourite for the week at Splitcoast Stampers. Thanks, ladies.

Thanks for stopping by,

It's gorgeous Bronwyn! You are so clever to be crocheting flowers for a card! Just beautiful.

These kind of cards are my absolute favourite - less is definitely more. Love the touch of blue on while. Pleased to see you're still playing with your hook and yarn.

Beautiful, Bron. The touches of blue perfectly complement all that lovely white space; I love this.

Glad to see all that pinning paying, this is beautiful Bron, love all the white space and the lovely soft colourings and your flower is perfect, 3 layers would have been overkill l think.
