I tried something a little different for this hop…clean and simple cards.  I don’t know why, but CAS cards are so much more difficult for me. 

All-American wm 1

My first card uses a cut file purchased in the Silhouette store.  I “filled” the pieces with digital patterned paper from the Stars & Stripes by Peppermint Creative.  It looked a bit blah when I dry fit them, so I embossed the square panel with the Stars embossing folder and the quilt pieces with the Tiny Stars embossing folder.  I inked around the edges of everything before mounting them on a mat of Night of Navy with a matching center medallion.  A few enamel stars to finish and the card was done.

I Heart USA wm 1

I made this card with the USA cut file from The Cutting Cafe.  I filled the letters with patterned paper from the American Made Collection by J Baechtold.  Once I attached them I ran the entire front of the card through the Tiny Stars embossing folder.  I added the little I “heart” and coated it with Glossy Accents.

Show Your Colors wm 1

And for my last card (and least favorite), I printed a Subway Art panel and added a bit to it by coating the God Bless America with Glossy Accents, inserting Eyelet Outlet Star brads. 

Now kindly hop on over to my friend and blogging buddy, Amanda’s, blog.
