Its my turn to be on the blog today, sharing a birthday card with you all to celebrate CAS-ual Fridays Stamps 5th Birthday!!! I'm very fortunate to have been part of the CFS family since June 2015 when I joined 'The Clean and Simple' Challenge team. I was very fortunate to then be asked to become a 'Girl Friday' and I've loved seeing the company grow. You couldn't ask for a better boss than Michele, she is incredibly supportive and generous, and her product designs are spectacular. I couldn't be happier being a part of her CFS family!!
Since I started with the CAS challenge, I decided to create a CAS birthday card with lots of die-cutting and my favourite colour combo:
I've always loved bold, graphic cards and even though this is hard on the eyes to look at, I love the topsy-turvy design.
I started by die-cutting the largest shape from the Bubble Box Fri-Dies from some turquoise CS. From that shape I then die-cut the next shape down, putting it on an angle. I continued to do this, alternating the angle and CS colour until I got to the smallest die.
To stick this all together I firstly adhered the large blue shape to the card front. I like that it overhangs the sides because you can us those bits to flip open the card. In the space in the middle of that die (where the smaller white one would go) I put lots of strips of double-sided tape. That way I could put each die-cut shape in place. Once all the shapes were in I die-cut another blue piece with the smallest die and heat embossed the sentiment from Franklyisms with silver embossing powder. This was put on foam tape over the inlaid piece and I glued on blue and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I hope you liked my card and its given you a few ideas for your next CAS design. If your interested in purchasing any of the products I used today or any others from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps please use my special Girl Friday code to save yourself 15%.

Enjoy the rest of your week and I'm going to ben here again tomorrow with another card on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog but you'll just have to wait and see what it will be.....
