Simple CAS Card

I came across a great video by Catherine Pooler.

After watching the video, I sat down and made three cards in succession, all similar, but all different. Above is my first card.

Watch the video to understand the basics of this card.


I’m not going to give instructions for this, because it’s all included in Catherine’s video. You’ll see in the video that my first card (shown at the top of this page) is very close to the card Catherine made.

Here’s my next card:

For this card I made the sponged shape slightly different, and added colored rhinestones. I also moved the ‘numbers’ further across to the right.


Here’s my last card:

Again this one is different. I’ve made one end much narrower, and this time added some plastic circle stick-ons that were in my stash.

Each card has only been changed slightly, but each one is totally different from the others.

Different stamps, colors, and embellishments will make a huge difference to the finished card. Each card only took a few minutes – I’m taking way under five minutes – so this is a very quick card to make if you need a card in a hurry!

Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!






P.S. You can see Catherine’s full post and a photo of her finished card here.

  1. These are great, Cheryl! I checked out the video. Under 10 minutes? Wow! My kind of cards! I like your interpretation even better!

  2. Thanks everyone! I must admit I was amazed at how quick these are to make. I’m going to try more girly colors next time and see how that turns out.

  3. Thanks Denise. I want to clarify that each card was under ten minutes, not all three!

    But…. each card did take under five minutes (with all supplies out and ready to go), so…. hmmmm, maybe.

  4. Catherine, THANK YOU, because I looove this design. So easy, and yet so effective.

    I’ll be doing more of these for sure, and will most likely make some as thank you cards for the oncology ward. Quick and easy, and not bulky, which is what is required.

    Thanks so much for stopping by.

  5. Hey, neat card! I really love that color fade/ombre look! Thanks for the link to that great video, by Catherine Pooler. I am like everyone else…stunned that such a great looking card can take only a short amount of time. Hmmmm. Do I feel a “pack of gift cards” coming on? OMGosh….right? What a brilliant idea to assembly-line an assortment of these cards for a gift pack! What’s not to love about that? LOL Change up the sentiments? Yeah, I am liking where this is going….thanks for that cool idea!
    Thanks for sharing, Cheryl. Glad you look around and find these fun videos, and share them with us!!!

  6. Thanks Kristie! It’s amazing how each card looks so different despite using the exact same colors and stamps!

  7. Hey, Anna! That’s a great idea. These would make a great gift-pack of cards for whatever occassion.

    I’ve been brainstorming how I could take this idea and make it into Christmas cards. I can’t imagine it would be that hard. Just change up the colors and use an appropriate stamp.

    So glad Catherine Pooler made this video!!
