CASology 64 - Harvest


This week's CASology Cue Card is Harvest!



I have always loved this wheat image by Papertrey. To me it's the perfect mixture of graphic and natural and the fact that the 'twine' tying it all together is a separate stamp which allows you to stamp it in a different colour if you choose, just makes me happy!

To add some interest to this very flat card, I stamped the wheat twice - once in white and once in Soft Suede. I chose the Simon Says Stamp sentiment, because the thickness of the font is similar to that of the stalks of wheat.

Now it's your turn - show us your Harvest projects!

Before you do, here are links to the blogs of the other DT members - go check out what they came up with for this cue card!

This is just stunning. I love the craft and white, with just a pop of red. I don't recall seeing this stamp before--I though I knew (owned?) all of the PTI.

This is fab, Ardyth. I love the way you have used the white to give the sheaf a bit if a shadowy look, perfect on the kraft background. I can see why you love this stamp x
