Hi friends,
 After my CAS card casualties (from my last post), I decided to get help for my problem. I admitted to having a problem (creating CAS cards) - the first step, so the next step was to do something about it. So as they say, "Those who can't... take a class from those who can!" I signed up for a CAS class online :) Hopefully, that will help some.
Since I had my Maggies out as well as my Prisma pencils, I decided to make another card.
Here it is:

 and a closer peek:
 I played along with this week's sketch at the Sweet Stop:

Of course as soon as I saw this sketch, I thought ---> envelope. So I had to do that too *Ü*

It's 1/2" deep since I can't keep it CAS! ;) I made the envelope from pink vellum as are the Royal roses (MFT).
ETA: I usually create my eveloboxes on the Crafter's Companion board or the Martha Stewart Score board. Here are the measurements for an A2 size at 1/2" depth:
Paper: 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
Score: 2 5/8" & 3 1/8" & on the opposite side
turn & score remaining 2 sides: 3 1/4" & 3 3/4"

Well, that's it for now.
Thanks for peeking today :)


  1. Your card & envelope are gorgeous & I love the added roses * sentiment to the envelope! Do you have a link for the envelope for the measurements & score measurements? I would love to make one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Last week I convinced myself at M's that I didn't need the SB Round Hearts and now you go and create this fabulous card! With an equally fabulous envelope too! What's a girl to do?!?!?

    Thanks for the envelope measurements. I love my MS SB.

  3. Love that pink vellum envelope and your sweet card. I can't believe you've signed up for a CAS class! Your cards are so wonderful and you are just following your heart. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Very, very cute. Love all the details. Thanks for playing at The Sweet Stop.

  5. Pretty! That envie is divine. Who ever opens it will be thrilled with such a gorgeous masterpiece inside. The card is stunning, great coloring and love the heart edged die. Beautifully done as usual. Don't worry about be a CAS gal, you have Karli style, and that is all you own and very special!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment :) So appreciated!
