CAS Cards for Seniors September Meeting

Clean and Simple (CAS), is generally the theme for Cards for Seniors Meetings.  Today I’m sharing two cards we’ll be stamping and assembling at the September 9th and 14th meetings.  Both cards are designed for quick and easy assembly… LOL, I would call them 5 minute cards but with several people sharing supplies, they do take a little more time to complete. Smile

The first card features a trio of panels stamped with images from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, SeniorsLOL… and using up a bit of paper in my stash, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is retired, but one could easily substitute printed paper patterns from the Just Add Cake or Paisley Petals DSP packs.Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, SeniorsThe center Pocket Silhouettes image is backed with Old Olive card stock, popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and intentionally lowered on the faux photo shelf in Early Espresso.Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, Seniors

“Thanks so much” is one of two sentiments included with the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set.  Stamped with Old Olive Classic Ink, it was punched with a word window punch and then added to an Early Espresso Modern Label Punched layer.Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, SeniorsThe card front was then finished off with a bit of Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, attached with mini glue dots behind the knot on the bow, and on each end of the ribbon.

In my Cards For Seniors Meetings, all bows are pre-tied, so all they have to do is add glue dots.

The second card has more of a masculine flair, featuring the Totally Tool Stamp Set along with Well Worn and Neutrals DSP.  My friends, senior stampers and club members are always looking for CAS cards for guys… so I think the Seniors will like this one too!Well_Worn, DSP, Paper_Pack, Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, SeniorsThe card base was done in Whisper White, with a layer of River Rock added to the front.  A mat pack and paper piercing tool were used to perfectly place brushed silver brads onto the striped River Rock DSP layer.Well_Worn, DSP, Paper_Pack, Pocket_Silhouettes, Old_olive, taffeta, ribbon, totally_Tool, word_Window, Modern_Label, dimensionals, Sharon_Field, Createdbyu_Blogspot, Seniors, Brushed_silver, card_stock, brads, mat_pack

The wrench was colored with a silver metallic pencil (retired).  Layered with Soft Suede and Brushed Silver card stock, it was then attached to the card front.

Cute cards! I hope to be able to go to SS the 14th. I'm getting better each day. The 'tool' card is clever! And I love the Pocket Silhouettes Stamps!

Both cards are great! Is the DSP on the second card metallic? It looks like it is to me.
