Just Living Is Not Enough - Brick Wall CAS

Yogi here today with a CAS- one layer card. Easy Peasy... using a stencil and embossing folder for the background. Love the little butterflies - they make me smile, which in the frame of mind I'm in is a good thing.

I'm using a Quietfire Design quote stamp "Just Living is Not Enough..."

Scored and side folded my white cardstock (5"w x 7"h).

Masked off the parts of the stencil (Crafter's Workshop "Tuscan Wall") I wasn't using. Sponged Distress "Old Paper" all over the brick wall part. Then went over some areas with a dirty brown sponge.

Masked off everything but the ivy on the stencil and sponged with "Mowed Lawn".

Used my hard rubber mallet to randomly emboss the brick wall (Taylored Expressions "Bricks") here and there.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Die cut the flower spring (Memory Box "Honey Blossom"). Sponged "Mustard Seed" and "Wild Honey" on the flowers and "Forest Moss" on the leaves and stem. Adhered to card.

Die cut a bunch of tiny butterflies (Memory Box "Butterfly Delights") from some Brusho colored watercolor paper I had in my stash.

As a final touch added some Stickles dry glitter "Thistle" to the centers of the flowers with a Quickie Glue pen


  1. Love, love, LOVE the random texture in this card!!!! What a wonderful idea! It so reminds me of an old building with hints of its past peaking out from underneath the newer facade.
    Thanks so much for sharing, Yogi!
    Gotta go find me a hard rubber mallet.........

  2. beautiful! I adore that brick wall!
