MFP Stamps Challenge 23 - CAS theme: Beach

MFP Stamps Challenge 23
CAS Theme - Beach
(CAS=Cards can not have more than 1 other
full layer besides the card base. There needs to
be a one stamped image as your focal point.
There needs to be lots of white or open space.)

Here's my sample card as a design team member for Mark's Finest Papers! Thanks for looking and head on over to JOIN IN the challenge fun!
I have really come to LOVE the CAS cards.
This was very simple, aka EASY, and it turned 
out nice. :)  Better yet, I think it can be used 
for guys or gals. I started with the main card
back. I then cut another piece, a 1/4" smaller,
and ran that through an embossing folder for
some great texture. Then I cut a piece a 1/4"
smaller than that one and that is the piece I
stamped my image and sentiment on. I used
Copic markers to color and just took my black
pen and dotted around the edge to add some
dimension. I love the sentiment!! 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to join in

I used MFP stamp set

"Silly Shells"



  1. I love this MFPSS set and wish I owned it. I love the coloring you did. It really makes the image pop! TFS!
