Reason to Smile CAS card

I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) card for you today. This card is made with the Reason to Smile stamp set.

                Stamps: Reason to Smile. Petite Pairs 
            Paper: Marina Mist, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White, Marina Mist DSP 
            Ink: Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, Lucky Limeade marker 
            Accessories: Lucky Limeade bakers' twine, blender pen 

The base is Marina Mist. I stamped a flower image from the Reason to Smile set twice on Whisper White cardstock in Not Quite Navy ink, colored the stem in with the fine tip of a Lucky Limeade marker and used a Blender Pen and Marina Mist ink to color the flower. The greeting, from Petite Pairs, is stamped in Lucky Limeade. I added a strip of Marina Mist designer paper to the bottom and some Lucky Limeade bakers' twine. That is then mounted on Lucky Limeade cardstock. That's all attached on the base.

I used the coordinating stamp from Petite Pairs to stamp the card liner, added a strip punched with the Scallop Trim border punch and a bit of Lucky Limeade designer paper. This created a quick but pretty inside for the card.

This seven-piece stamp set "Reason to Smile" is available this month only. Best of all, you can get it for only $5 with any $50 purchase (wood or clear mount).  Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up!
