AAA Cards #132 - Up to One Third

Hello! It is time for a new challenge at AAA Cards - Use up to One Third of the card. This challenge is one of my favorites because it makes it really easy to keep to a CAS design.

For my card, I used both the challenge and the optional twist of masking.

I love to read so when I saw this stamp set I knew I wanted it. To start my card, I stamped the bunny in the top corner and the pile of books in the lower corner and colored them in with copics. Then I stamped the sentiment in the middle. In retrospect, I should have waited to stamp the sentiment until after I added my diagonal strip to make sure it was centered. To mask my stamped areas, I fussy cut post it notes to cover my images.

I measured out the sides of my panel into thirds and used masking tape to cover the outer corners so I could blend distress inks over the inside.  Once I finished that, I realized my sentiment was a little off center. There is a really cute little heart stamp in the set so I added a few around the words to fill in some of the empty space. I trimmed down the sides slightly and added it to brown cardstock and then added the whole to a A2 card.

Our sponsor for this challenge is CAS-ual Fridays and they are offering a $25 gift certificate to the winner. I hope you can join us :)
