Hello, happy Sunday everyone!
Today’s card I created for this week’s CASology challenge,
Our new cue card for week 244 at CASology is “STRONG”.
I’ve interpreted the word STONG as staying strong through a tough situation,
In this case I’ve chosen to create a compassionate card design for a friend.
I’ve chosen to create a minimal card design with plenty of open with space,
I’ve used a simple colour scheme with a big pop of colour for the sentiment.

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 pretty focal image on today's card is from the Beautiful You Clear Mount Stamp Set,
I’ve stamped the silhouette image directly on the card base in Basic Black Archival Ink.

To give my card a matching envelope I also repeatedly stamped the silhouette image onto
the back flap of a Whisper White C6 Envelope, using Basic Black Archival Ink once again.
The “brighter days” sentiment also comes from the Beautiful You Clear Mount Stamp Set,
I’ve stamped the sentiment with Basic Black Archival Ink onto Bermuda Bay Cardstock.

To complete the design, I trimmed the sentiment end off at an angle before popping it up
with Stampin' Dimensionals, this adds some dimension to the design so it isn’t completely flat.
And lastly I added three Brights Enamel Shapes in Bermuda Bay around the silhouette image.
I hope you enjoyed this minimal, compassionate card design,
Thanks so much for stopping by!
