CAS Expressions

I love to create textures.  This project gives you a quick tutorial on how to create a simple but effect textured background to express just how much you love someone.  Well, the background is great for just about anything – especially masculine cards!

I made a video for you to see exactly how I created this background – it’s a quick one, and if you need a bigger size, be sure to check it out on YouTube here.

The Concept and Inspiration:

I took a look at a few challenges this morning and made this card with them in mind.  The first was to get the design down – I used the CASe this Sketch idea and then incorporated my concept from two others – the feel of the card from Muse and the colors from The Card Concept.  I love the final result, and it is a super easy card to make.  Of course my favorite part is the textured background.  I entered this card into the following challenges:
