Go Surfin'


Okay, it's got the 'white stuff' but has it got enough white space? Oooh it's my cas dilemna all over again! I made this card for a few challenges , one of which is a cas challenge, so I hope it is appropriate.

The sea, sand and surf board were cut on the Silhouette . I coloured them with ink and stencilled and embossed spots onto the surfboard. The sunbeams were made with a stencil and embossing powder. I cut the sentiment on the Silhouette and coloured it with ink - it was actually the same colour ink as the sea , so I don't know why it looks a different colour!

I'd like to enter:
Less is More  no stamps (nearly failed at the last moment and stamped a sentiment...but managed to realise in time!)
Curtain Call surf's up
Time Out sunbeams
Come and Get it  summertime

  1. Ooh, a bit borderline with the white space, Marina, but I think those wide rays just about qualify ;) And how hard is it not to use a stamp, I found it a tough challenge this week! You've created a great little scene, really eyecatching.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

  4. Great card Marina ! I also love to make a card inspired by several challenges! To make it even more CAS I would not have stencilled the sunbeams. It is so hard to know when to stop ! Anyway it's a beautiful design and I love your theme! Thanks for sharing and for playing along at Less is More!

  8. I know what you mean: I also struggle sometimes with the white space and how much to leave it... Then I often end up making "super CAS" cards just to be on the safe side! :) I love the colors and the happy summer feel of this card. The sun rays look fab and I love all the curves in this card! Thanks for joining Time Out and Less Is More!

  11. I've made a few cards where I think the stenciling is what made me doubt about it being CAS enough or not. Such a small and quick thing, but it also has lot of impact. I think this cool design needs those sunrays though, so whatever the answer I think you were right to add them:)

  12. I think it's perfect and without those rays it wouldn't have the same impact! Terrific card!
