CAS cut and print card

Hi Everyone, another CAS card from me, what's happening? LOL. Anyhow, I saw the image on Create with TLC a freebie of the day this week, and as soon as I saw it I knew exactly what to do, something quite rare for me.

 I took the image into the Cameo design and after a lot of faffing about I eventually made it into a cut file, but, printed the sentiment onto a circle with the DP in it. My black card was thicker than it said on the cover and took 3 pieces of card and a double cut to cut it, not as cleanly as I wanted, but I thought quite acceptable to place on top of the printed circle. I then die cut a circle out of the ivory leather effect top card and raised it on dimensionals then placed black paper under it, placed the printed and cut circle in the middle of it glued flat.

I really wanted to add something and I'm still not sure if it needs something to finish it, I find it quite hard not to add something.

Faith it was so worth all the faffing about huni. Such a very beautiful card.
And NO!!! Do NOT add anything else to it.. tee hee. It is perfect exactly how it is. The hardest part of CAS is knowing when to not add anything extra. Grins.xx

What a wonderful idea, to make this into a cameo file and use dp behind it. I thought you colored it digital, but this is even better.
Great card,doesn't need anything else!

Sometimes the hardest thing is not to add something else. This doesn't need another thing! The beautiful colors just pop with all that white space!
