Triple Word Score!

You may remember, way back in April, how I claimed that I was going to make one CAS card a week...well, here's my second one-layer CAS card, ha!

Mom called me some time back and asked if I could use a bag a old Scrabble pieces. Why yes, I replied. I don't know what I'll do with them, but I'm sure I'll think of something! Well, here is...something!

I was inspired by the One Layer / 3 of something Challenge at Less is More, as well as the Clean & Simple / Wordsmith Challenge at The Paper Players. I used Clean & Simple Sketch #199.

I was concerned that the tiles would count as extra layers...but I looked through Less Is More's One-Layer cards from the past, and it looks like embellishments are used... I know it's not a perfect one-layer card, but I sure had fun!

I used masking and TH Vintage Photo distress ink to create the border. The sentiment is from a Unity stamp set; I just inked the "Missing" part of the full "Missing You" stamp, and then heat-embossed it in brown.

This was super-simple, but I do really like the result. Thanks for the inspiration!


  1. I love your card too, but the tiles could be construed as added layers... or are they embellishments?
    Tricky question!
    Super CAS design however!
    Thank you.
