What is a "CAS" card?

I have asked this question and have finally received the answer! This is copied from Jenny Charboneau (known as Miss Boo at Split Coast). She is the CAS Challenge Hostess at SCS...so is definitely the expert answering "what is a CAS card?".....

"What is CAS?CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.

There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.

1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it. OR

2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique. OR

3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques. OR

4. any combination of the above"....

There you have it! You can check out her beautiful examples by clicking on her name above...now that I am clear on this....off to CAS ...:)... LOL

I've only been stampin almost 2 years and thought CAS and CASE were the same until I read Miss Boo's definition!
