I’ve got a CAS card to share today, with a rainbow twist! I’m using the new Wish dienamic from MFT for this card. I die cut a piece of white card with the single stich rounded rectangle frame.

I'm joining in with the challenge at Addicted to CAS today. Their code word is Wish. I started by blending pink distress inks onto a piece of card, flicking it with water to create some details.

Along with the triangles in the Mama Elephant Trifecta stamp set, it also comes with some fun arrow stamps. I used them to make a summery background. I used the mini Misti stamping tool to help me line up the stamp properly, choosing inks in some bright colours. Next, I die cut from gold glitter paper, a 'birthday'… Continue reading Arrows
