2020 Stash Party #31 - A Simple CAS Card

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Today I am taking a break from my blended backgrounds and sympathy cards to create a CAS project for the Anything Goes option of my challenge blog 613 Avenue Create!  As with sympathy cards, CAS is not a genre that I tackle often.  It would seem that it would be easy to create a clean and simple project but I don't find that to be the case.  I am reminded of that famous quote of Henry David Thoreau, "If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter."  Achieving the "less is more" mentality in card making is a difficult pursuit!

 You Can Always Read Me
This year has been all about cleaning out my stash and using stamps, dies, stencils, and papers that I have long neglected.  This cute little image is from an adorable stamp and dies set that is intended to be used to create a cozy "reading" corner scene.  I am not much of a scene builder but I might give it a go when I once again start working on my masking techniques. The background text stamp has been in my stash for a minute as well.
