Hey There......{CAS w/Jessica}

Morning Trendy Twiners!
Jessica from Chick-n-Scrap here to share a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using one of the featured colors for the month~Pink Midnight

It is always nice to have a stack of cards on hand for those last minute Just Because cards, Birthday cards and/or Thinking of You cards. Adding embellishments as a focal point not only makes your quick and easy card really stand out, but makes it look like you spent more time constructing your card than you really did :)
Here is the card that I made.....
I was able to use all scraps for my card, picking out the pink Bazzill cardstock and a small black piece of cardstock that match the colors in the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine.
Once I cut my colored cardstock to size to fit my white card base, using my ATG I attached the black to my pink paper. 

When adding the Pink Midnight Trendy Twine, I cut 2 small notches on either side of where I was wrapping the twine around the cardstock. This adds a place for the twine to sit and helps it to stay in place on my card as well.
Next I stamped my sentiment~ from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set right above where my colored cardstock will sit using Versifine Onxy Black Ink.
After adding the colored cardstock to my base, I further embellished my card using some enamel dots.

The GREAT thing about this card is you can make several in no time, and by just changing up the twine colors, sentiments and papers make it work for any occasion :)

I hope you have enjoyed my card and remember that tip I mentioned about wrapping twine around your cards :) It really does work GREAT!
