Er, yes you read the title right! I do not do CAS and as a rule I don't do male cards either, just not enough fluff, fancy and flowers for my liking! That being said, sometimes you just have to and it's my nephew's 13th birthday today so I had to make a simple boy card for a teenager!
Of course the perfect place for teenager style images for boys has got to be Mos, so here is my CAS card..
I have used Authentique papers for my card with kraft cardstock and a sentiment from Waltzing mouse. I have machine stitched all my papers and tied a piece of twine behind a button for my minimalist embellishments!
This is Mos fab image "Paul texting" who is just perfect for teenage boys! I have coloured him with prisma pencils of course!
I guess cards like this are all about the image so you need to choose a good one!
I am entering this into Mos challenge CAS, Sweet stampin clean and simple and Our creative corner anything goes.
Thanks for coming by my blog!
Big hugs

Fabulous card.
The image is so beautifully coloured and the papers are perfect.

Just for the records:
For you this card is CAS - for me making a card like this one would be "almost fancy style" - just a proof how different we all are.

Have a perfect day

Great card for a young man! Your image is coloured beautifully and I love the layers of DP's with the stitching. Not sure I would even know how to do CAS so you're not alone!!
