Summer Solstice: CAS for Seniors Card

Today’s Summer Solstice Card Share is a clean and simple (CAS)design featuring fresh and fun colors:  Poppy Parade, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight.

The colorful bright palette is one the Seniors seem to love, and is also a fun way to celebrate and commemorate the arrival of spring!!Clean  and Simple 5 minute card for senior stampers April 2012

The card was stepped up a notch by using a little rhinestone jewels bling, and sponging techniques.Retired daffodil delight ribbon in simple knotted bow

A simple knotted bow will travel well through the USPS.  In my senior sessions, I generally pre-tie bows and knots so there is less waste and frustration. 

This particular ribbon is retired Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon… not sure why it’s retired though, as it is a perfect match to the Daffodil Delight card stock.  Winking smile I’m pretty sure my Senior Stampers won’t care!sponge dauber and rhinestone in center of flower

Notched corners provide an additional architectural detail, offsetting the daffodil delight sponge daubered flower center and rhinestone jewel.large oval and scallop oval punched sentiment

An additional rhinestone jewel was added to the layered oval punched Friendly Phrases sentiment after sponging along the edges with a sponge dauber too.  The sentiment was then popped onto the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional “pop dot”.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a collection of clean and simple cards, each constructed in under 5 minutes… hope you’ll stop back by to say hello!

I love it, Sharon! Thank you. A friend and I have been looking for a simple project to do at a church women's conference. We only have 30 minutes so we need something clean and simple. I think you just provided the inspiration we were looking for! Have a great day.... Thanks again for all the inspiration you provide. ~Deb

Great simple card!! Pretying the knots is a great idea. Love the notched corners. I couldn't be without my ticket corner punch. It just totally dresses up anything you use it on. It's amazing the difference that tiny little punch can make.
