CAS Cards and Fun Folds

CAS cards are "Clean And Simple" cards.
These cards don't have a ton of layers or embellishments.
They can be easily recreated by any skill level stamper.
And... the best part...
they can be elaborated on by the experienced stamper!
I like clean and simple cards because
they encourage me to be creative and think outside my box.
When I see a CAS card that I like,
I ask myself, "What can I do to this card to really 'dress it up'?"
What is really fun about this card is the FUN FOLD.
Here is how to create it and the pattern paper within.
I scored this 4-14 x 11" card at 2-1/4" and 5-1/2".
My DSP (that's Designer Series Paper) is cut as follows...
1st cut:  4 x 12 (three cards can be made from one piece of DSP)
2nd cut:  (from the 4x12) 4 x 5-1/4", set aside
3rd cut:  (from remaining piece) 2 x 4 and 3 x 4
Each of these pieces fit perfectly into the spaces
seen on the front of this CAS card (see photo above.)
Isn't it just darling how it opens?!
To recreate this card, you will want to purchase...
I {heart} Hearts stamp set
Full Heart Punch
Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, and
Whisper White Card Stocks

That's it!
