Paper Players CAS Male Birthday Card


The joke is on me! 

Last week when I looked at what the challenge was going to be at The Paper Players, I only saw "masculine birthday card."

I completely missed the"CAS" part. Most of the cards I make usually ARE clean and simple, but for some reason, this time I went in a different direction and used quite a few layers and embellishments. 
I had it all done, ready to post, when I noticed the CAS. 
Oh no.

No time to make another card, as we were headed out of town, so I quickly looked at cards I had ready for future posts, and found this birthday card that I think works better for the challenge than the original one I had made.

(Here is the one I had made)

So the joke is on me, one of the few times I don't make a CAS, and that's what I needed after all! 
Oh well!

Here is the challenge: 

(Notice CAS is prominently displayed...I guess I need new glasses!)

I made this card with textured paper, Lawn Fawn stitched journal card die, Lil inkers stitched rectangles, and Stampin Up's Amazing Birthday.

Head on over to The Paper Players and take a look at all the cards...even better yet, play long!

A good generic card. I do like these LIL Inkers stitched dies that are appearing everywhere....must add to wish list. Love the blue and green and the little buttons just finish it off...lovely design.

Great card, Laurie, I love the colors! Now I'm curious to see the other card...

LeAnne said...

I think your card is perfectly CAS....more so than some that we see, LOL! LOVE the color combo and I had not seen that stitched banner fun is that? A great masculine card!

Greta said...

Clean & fresh--so appealing & could be for either sex!

The colors are terrific and I love all your die cut details. When you post your original card you will have to let us know.

Outstanding! I always look forward to your posts, they are excellent! I love how you die cut the side and added such vibrant colors to your card!

LOL, that is funny considering CAS is so YOU! But I love the card you've made. The colors are perfect for anyone and the stars and banners are FUN! Great card!

Laurie that's so funny - especially for someone who makes such beautiful CAS cards! I love your final card though, especially the choice of colours - this card is so zingy, which is great for a guy card. Love it!
