Texting for CAS-ual Fridays!

Here's another exciting brand new challenge blog!   It's called CAS-ual Fridays.   The "CAS" is for "Clean and Simple".  This one looks fun so I will be checking it out each week.   This past Friday was their very first Challenge and it was all about TEXTING!


For this challenge we can use stamps, texty pattern paper, or anything to get creative.  They were looking for text, not just a simple sentiment.  I had a great stampset for this.  Last year I purchased a stampset called My Game (D1433).  My daughter plays softball and this set has 24 different sentiments that is just perfect for any sport.   I decided to make a card for my daughter's softball coach.  I used nearly all the sentiments lining them up on a 4 x 6 block.  Some were vertical and some were horizontal.   Then I stamped the entire block onto my cardstock to create my 'texty' pattern.  Here is my card:

The pattern is from Originals - Colors and Cubes.   I edge distressed all the edges of each piece of cardstock to bring out the white core and used waxy to make little stitches on the seams.

All products are Close To My Heart.
