A Monsterously Good Birthday
Well I am giving CAS (clean & simple) another go, as you can see & what is more, I am back to making cards for males in my life. Always a little tricky to do as you know, I have gone all 'monster' as I reckon monsters & dinosaurs etc. are fairly 'safe' territory image-wise. This card uses part of an image from A Day for Daisies called 'Monster Chris', (image name totally co-incidental I might add, as it bears no resemblance to my good self - at least I hope not! LOL) & I have my chosen monster peeping out of his circular mat. I have of course, used my Promarkers to colour him in.
Having layered my selected Spring-coloured papers in a simplistic kind of way as befits a CAS card, added a hopefully appropriate circular sentiment I created myself to go with the image. My beloved Cameo did the honours for my shapes (which having made the shapes I wanted used & found the relevant papers, used the print & cut feature).
Unlike my last CAS card, I managed to keep the insert very simplistic too, opting for just a 'plain' paper one. Yes, not quite entirely 'plain' as I added a row of 'Monster Chris' at the top edge and a subtle larger version for the area I will eventually handwrite the 'to & from' on. The added sentiment hopefully matches my papers too.
Yep, as you can see I also made this card twice - well, this is my busiest time of year for birthdays! LOL.
