The Clean and Simple style (CAS) has gradually become more and more popular in paper crafting. Nowadays the CAS style is just as popular as more complex styles like Vintage and Shabby Chic.
The Clean and Simple style is suitable for all occasions.
On projects made in a Clean and Simple style text is often used as motif. It is also quite common to use animals and objects which are stamped and colored. Sometimes even humans are used as motifs, but this is more rare.

Simple geometric shapes like circles, quadrates and rectangles. Often repeating patterns. On projects like cards and layouts made in this type of style there is a lot of “White Space”.

The motifs used on projects in Clean and Simple style is often stamped and colored by using ink, paint or markers. Fuzzy Cutting, where you cut around the motifs by hand or die cutting is also common. Dymos has sometimes been used for making texts. Many cards in CAS-style often has only one layer.
