The Paper Players Challenge #118 - Anne Marie's CAS with Frames

This week at the Paper Players, Anne Marie is hosting, & has presented another fun challenge:-


Well, everyone's perception of CAS varies, so I hope this card fits the bill:-


I've included two frames on this card, the shiny, blue bike frame & an interlocking frame.  Here's how the card works:-



These cards are really quite simple to create - you make a gate card base & then stick down half of your frame on the card, add adhesive to the opposite side of the central panel, sit it within the frame & push down to adhere.  Easy peasy!  :)

I've used four of the new incolors here.  Midnight Muse for the base card & frame, & then Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple & Gumball Green for the ribbons & colouring.

I used Versamark to stamp the bike/presents & then heat embossed with black.  The colouring has been done with blender pens & inkpads.  A touch of clear glitter pen over the midnight muse bike frame adds a lovely sparkle.

Here are the links to the rest of the Team, so you can see their fabulous CAS creations:-

Love this interactive style card Helen, the Midnight muse and crisp white are so fresh and the ribbons add the perfect pop of colour. xxx

I love the colors and I love your interlocking frame with the addition of the ribbon - such a fun touch!

Dawn Easton said...

Oh my goodness, Helen! This is FANTASTIC! Love the design! Such a pretty card and those ribbon tabs are fabulous!!

Jen Arkfeld said...

WOW! So clever! Your framework is awesome. But your coloring is fantastic. The shadowing under the bike really made it look 3D. I had to do a double take just to be sure! You did a superb job!

Amy White said...

Wow, love that interlocking frame idea with the strips of ribbon... and that bike image is coloured to perfection!

You lost me at "you make a gate card base" ...... but I do love your card, Helen! So fun and whimsical. The ribbons are a lovely addition.

Such a cool card, Helen! I love how the frames are interlocked and the ribbons add such a great splash of color. I love the added dimension from the poped up bicycle, too. Just an awesome card all-around! Wow! :)
