CAS - With Love

Hi everyone,

I guess some of you know how much I LOVE Clean And Simple cards, even though I don`t see myself as a CAS - cardmaker! I always enjoy trying something new, and that`s just what I wanted making this card set. Not only are these super quick and easy to create, they are also suitable for mailing because they are neither heavy or bulky in any way :)



Believe it or not, but I actually own a Cricut - machine! I`ve had it for years, but never really used it much. As going through my stash I found this cartridge called Home Accents, and just had to try it:) I also used a nestabilities die to cut out the square. One pearl for each card and a sentiment from Flourishes - and voilà!



I might have to make these in other colors too:)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
