This is the CAS (Clean And Simple) card I made for this week's family letter. I broke in my Serene Serandade solutions cartridge. What fun! I have to admit though that this was the first time I've tried the layers and I was a little confused about how to cut out the pieces. And with it being a solutions cartridge it didn't have the nice little book that shows you how to press the combination of feature buttons with the key pad. But after about 3 attempts I got it. Would still like have more time to play around with options and explore all that's possible - maybe on our next holiday. But overall I was happy with how it turned out. Used a cute acrylic border stamp I got way back when we went to Ben Franklins and a new acrylic sentiment stamp I just got last week. It was nice and convenient that they were both acrylic as I could mount them on the same block and make sure they lined up OK. Looking forward to Tuesday night and trying to get a few more Christmas cards done.
