CAS-ual Fridays card making basics

Today’s card is a basic one from a basic sketch and it was quick to make.  Ideal card making, right?

I made this card from one of the sketches that is available through the Basics & Beyond Online Class .

When I made this card, I scrolled through the 10 sketches in that class, chose one and made this card in less than 10 minutes.  The most difficult part was deciding on how big or small I wanted to white layer to be and how to layer it with the Early Espresso and the patterned paper strip.

    I like a card that has detail on it so I guess that would be ‘beyond’. It provides me with a challenge and shows the person I am giving it to that I have been some effort into it ‘for them’. I also like a sample card that I know I can get the product for. SU is the easiest way for me to get product but I am using Simon Says more.
    Love your card Catherine and look forward to the online series.
