CASology 70 - Triangle


This week's CASology Cue Card is Triangle!



I really wanted to emphasize the rich red of this AMuse Santa's hat (which is almost a triangle!). But I also wanted to create a little interest, so I popped up the panel and edged it in the same stickles that I used for the trim on the hat. I'm not going to lie - it takes good eyesight and/or bright light and a steady hand to get the stickles right on the edge of the card. And it will warp as it dries, but it flattened out again on its own once it was completely dry. But the look is so sparkly and festive, it's worth the effort and the time.

Now it's your turn - triangles are very trendy right now - can't wait to see where this week's cue card will take you!

Yep...pure Ardyth cleverness right here. Amazing what a little sparkle does to a card, eh?! :) Love how that bright red hat just pops right off the card despite its small stature! Love this!!!

Another unique card Ardyth. The cards for your nephews were oh so original - just like you.

HA! Leave it to you to figure a triangle from the hat! You are so amazing in your out of the box thinking!

Geri said...

Love your 'triangle'! I'm totally impressed with your stickle border! The second I read 'steady hand and good eyesight' I knew I was hooped because I usually wear two pairs of reading glasses to do normal card work!

So adorable, Ardyth. I love A Muse stamps..they're always so cute.

Hope my email to you about the stamp got to you and didn't go in your spam.
