Here's a bit of information for those of you that may not have heard of the acronyms CAS and CASE:

The acronym CAS stands for Clean and Simple.

1. Usually only one layer but can include a simple layer or two.

2. A lot of open space sometimes called "white space" can include color, texture or pattern.

3. Usually no embellishments but can include something minimal.

4. Minimal color palette.

5. Quick and easy to create.

The acronym CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks for stopping by!
