Truly CAS

I received a couple of wonderful Christmas cards that are truly CAS--lots of space with no image.  It's amazing how appealing this type of card can be, so I gave it a try.  My white space is actually green. 
I also have some white white space if the tiny black splatters don't count.  In the strictest definition, the splatters DO count, but I love what they add to my card.  This is my entry for WCMC9 using the Love You, Mean It stamp set that was a gift from a blogging friend.  I stamped the little stem in PTI New Leaf using first & second generation stamping.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black.  I really think it's the best black ink for sentiments as I don't even have to use my stamp positioner--one inking does it!  Originally I planned to add some of the little flowers, but left them off so this can be for hubby who likes green.  I debated about popping up the panel, but keeping it flat seemed to fit with the feel of this card.  Love having cardstock that matches the PTI inks.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday, The House that Stamps Built & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

Yum-Yum, Greta! You know I could eat this with a spoon, I love it so much!! And your splatters are so wee, they really don't count, do they? They look like that awesome paper with the built-in splatters we could get at the turn of the century. Happy New Year Hugs, Darnell

Greta,
Fabulous card, I love CAS...took me awhile to get there but they really do have an impact. I bet Steve will love its design as well but maybe not quite as much as the sentiment. Happy New Year.

Greta this is perfection in CAS. I LOVE CAS cards and your card is a perfect example. Subtle leaf stamping and the sentiment really stands out. I love it!

CAS cards and white (green!) space is always so hard for me, but you've made both look so lovely!
So happy you have you join us over at The House That Stamps Built this week!

Look at that - I am still commenting on last year's posts, sheeeesh! Will I ever catch up? Anyway I didn't want to miss letting you know that I adore this sweet CAS card! The wide, green frame and the branches in different shades of green are lovely!
Happy New Year, my friend!
