CASOLOGY WEEK 240 - FOLIAGE

 
Hello, happy Sunday everyone!
Today’s card I created for this week’s CASology challenge,
Our new cue card for week #240 at CASology is “FOLIAGE”.

 
I’ve chosen to create a simple yet elegant, masculine thank you card design,
I’ve gone crazy with green whilst containing it to a minimized area on my card.
 
My card base is an A2 top folding card made out of Whisper White Thick Cardstock,
Again I’ve used the handy Stampin' Trimmer for all my trimming and paper scoring today.

 
The foliage panel on today's card was made with the Banners For You Photopolymer Stamp Set,
Using one of the small leafy branch stamps in the set, I’ve repeatedly stamped the image onto
the small Whisper White Cardstock panel using Old Olive Ink to bring the foliage to life.
 
To give my card a matching envelope I also stamped the little leafy branch repeatedly
onto the back flap of a Whisper White C6 Envelope, using Old Olive Ink once again.
 
The little Thank you sentiment comes from the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set,
I've stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink onto some Basic Black Cardstock before
heat embossing the sentiment with White Stampin' Emboss Powder.

 
To give my card design some interest I’ve popped the stamped foliage panel up with
Stampin' Dimensionals, I then adhered the sentiment on top of the foliage panel with
more Stampin' Dimensionals to add another layer of dimension.
 
I hope you enjoyed this elegant, yet masculine card design,
Thanks so much for stopping by!

CASOLOGY WEEK 239 - LANDMARK

 
Hello, happy Sunday everyone!
Today’s card I created for this week’s CASology challenge,
Our new cue card for week 239 at CASology is “LANDMARK”.
 
 
I’ve chosen to create a simple one layer card design with minimal colour,
I’ve gone with a popular landmark that I’m sure most people will recognise.
 
My card base is an A2 top folding card made out of Whisper White Thick Cardstock,
Again I’ve used the Stampin' Trimmer for all my trimming and paper scoring today.

 
The focal image on today's card is from the Chase Your Dreams Clear Mount Stamp Set,
I stamped the Empire State Building onto my card base in crisp Basic Black Archival Ink.
 
The little sentiment also comes from the same Chase Your Dreams Clear Mount Stamp Set,
Again I’ve used Basic Black Archival Ink to stamp the sentiment directly on the card base.
 
To add another faux layer of detail to the card design but without actually adding a layer
I’ve added a small amount of light pen flicking using a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker.

 
Lastly I added a wee heart Brights Enamel Shape in Real Red to the side of the building,
This added a nice pop of colour to the design without overpowering the focal image.
 
I hope you enjoyed this simple landmark card design,
Thanks so much for stopping by!
