Create a CAS Card with Big Impact

Hello friends!
I know that I am supposed to post less, but here I am with another...Lol.
Currently I am traveling with my son David in Taiwan. It has been hot hot hot!!!
It's a luxury to travel as mother and son together as we know that young people these days are "busy".    I am constantly reminded how blessed I am as David is quite the perfect companion. His keen sense of directions and navigation (and patience) save me ( I am totally clueless with directions) from all the stress. I am savouring the time and will be cherishing the memories in years to come.

Don't forget to check the sales item over Altenew(see HERE)
Also, you can now order the NEW Distress Oxide HERE ---All 12 New colors!!!
Ps: I am editing the post with my IPad as it can be a little challenging....

And now, I am popping in to share a quick and easy card hope you don't mind.

There are just 4 ingredients in this.

2. A stamp set with outlines like this Best Bud (SSS), Best Bud (Altenew


3. Embossing Powder ( I used white)

 Shop Altenew here, Simon Says Stamp here

4. Pattern paper 
such as New Day Card Kit (SSS, Altenew)
You can use ANY type of pattern paper.

thanks (2)

The trickiest part of this project is the embossing on the heat-resistant acetate.
 To prevent the stray embossing powder is to use an embossing power bag or EK SuccessPowder tool. Mine is not perfect, you can still see tiny bits of white embossing powder...
but hey, isn't that a great "artistic touch"?


 All the supplies that you need to create this project are color-highlighted
 I hope that you find this post helpful.

Have a great time in Taiwan, Virginia. I'm also often lost with directions, but my husband is a master of it what is helpful when we travel somwhere. :-)
Your card is fantastic, thank you for tips!

Oh my. Is this ever an eye-catcher. Love the embossing on the acetate (always a challenge for me but the powder bag does help). It looks so incredible over that patterned paper. This card may be simple but it has huge impact. Hope you're enjoying you time with David. Also, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one without a sense of direction.

Fabulous card! I find it hard stamping on the slippery plastic but you've done a great job of it!
