CASology 98 - Shine


This week's CASology Cue Card is Shine!



One of the shiniest supplies I have is mirror card. I used the smaller of the two petal dies from Papertrey and simply inlaid the petals into the white panel. Keeping it small allows for lots of white space, making your card feel very clean. I used a light, airy sentiment to help with the clean feeling.

I ended up creating another card so that I could also use the negative part of the mirror card. I simply cut around it with a circle nestability and then inlaid the whole thing into a popped up white panel.


Now it's your turn - let's all be magpies this week - get your shine on! Before you do, make sure you stop by the blogs of the other DT members for more inspiration.

Love these. So great Ardyth and clever to use both negative and positive pieces. Don't know how you create a wonderful cards every time. Surely you must have a card or two that hits the wastepaper basket?? Probably not.

Barb Ghig said...

Awesome cards, Ardyth! I love the shine from the mirrored cardstock, and of course your beautiful CAS designs...so pretty! Loving how you used the negative space on the 2nd card, too!

Sheila H said...

Both are gorgeous, Ardyth. That shiny paper works so well. And the large sentiment is perfect.

Jen said...

Oh wow! The mirror card is a perfect choice for this challenge. Both of these cards are just stunning!

Joyce said...

I love both of these--how fun to use mirror paper and make cards that are mirror images of each other. I love to see another person who can not let part of a die cut go to waste.

Mirror paper; mirror images - how cool are these cards! Yet another 'reflection' (sorry..had to...) of your amazing talent!

WOW...times two! The mirror paper is so neat! Love Joyce's comment about using mirror paper for two cards that are mirror images of each other! Another amazing idea & card pal!

Gerrina said...

The first is beautiful! But the second is a great idea! (those bits end up in the bin here most of the time...) Hugs, Gerrina

Ardyth, I just recently found your blog. I plan to take a tour of it soon! In the meantime, your bold and beautiful birthday card inspired me to create a card for CASology. Thank you for the wonderful inspiration ...and for leading me to CASology.
