CASology 40 - Word


Today's CASology Cue Card is Word!



You can make your card by focussing on a word (or words), like I did here, or you can take the challenge to another level and play a word game with your card.

 Like I did with the word 'word':

W- Whisper White (and LOTS of white space!)
O- Only Orange
R- Real Red
D- Daffodil Delight

This is completely optional, and if you do choose to play like this, you can choose any word you like to build on.

It's impossible to cut foam tape or dimensionals to fit behind the delicate die cut, so to make the word 'birthday' stand out (literally) and give the card a bit of dimension without giving up white space, I cut 3 birthdays and stacked them together. (Unfortunately, this technique, along with the very grey weather we're having here in Toronto, made it difficult for my little camera to get a clear photo!)

So now it's your turn - give us the word! But before you head off, drop by the blogs of the other DT members and see where word took them!

Love how you interpreted word. Fabulous design.

Great idea! Love the stacked letters and the bright pops of color.

I feel your pain when photographing white on white...which tends to create grey! If you happen upon a magical soluttion, please do share it with us!

Love the sparkly white on white, and how those balloons appear to be lifting the letter "I". Love the alignment of the three elements, too - very pleasing on the eye. Well, both eyes, actually.

Very nice b.d. card! Like your interpretation of the letters in "word" each represented by a color. :)

Sian Ridley said...

This is gorgeous! The time spent stacking the letters was definitely well spent ;) I'm glad I'm not the only one who has photography issues when it comes to showing white on white and dimension - yours shows up perfectly though so I wouldn't worry :)

Another clever card from the Percy-Robb studio! Love it :)

Jenny said...

Ardyth love your cheery birthday card. Great tip to staack the die cuts!

Jen W. said...

Awesome take on the cue word and is that sparkle on the birthday?

Judy1223 said...

Ardyth, another awesome card! Seems we all leaned toward using die cut sentiments (at least in part), and I love how you stacked them for some depth. Love!

Kelly Griglione said...

Holy moly, how do you think of these things?! The card recipient will have NO IDEA of the origin of their card. Love how your black outlined balloons balance your black sentiment!

Jean said...

A perfect angle with the balloons lifting up the word ~ a classic Ardyth original ~ love it!

Denise Price said...

Love the white-on-white look--so classy!
