CASology 111 - Under


This week's CASology Cue Card is Under!



I incorporated the cue card in two ways on my card. 1) the 'you' is under the 'thank' (Stampin' Up "Hey You"), 2) the whole sentiment is under vellum.

I cut the vellum in a circle, to provide a bit of a subtle frame around the sentiment. The trick with vellum is to attach it to your card. Most adhesives show through the vellum, so alternative methods must be used. I chose an old (OLD) heart brad as my method. I love how the vellum softens the look of the black sentiment.

Now it's your turn. Drop by the rest of the team to see even more inspiration!

If I could get inside your head just for a moment Ardyth. As soon as I saw this is our gallery I though how does she think of these things! Brilliant. As for the die cuts? I usually have such a hard time lining them up, totally stamp dependent. I cut the fish first--did three, the one I used was best. Glasses ob a must, but I do have another technique--we'll chat.

Love this graphic design, and that brad is a very clever way to adhere the vellum.

Clever card Ardyth! I love how you interpreted the cue card. Such a wonderful idea to put the sentiment under the vellum and of course the most vision one with the you being under the thank. Great card! Hugs, Brenda

This is so CAS, the brad in the center is clever.

Melissa said...

Yep! This is clearly an Ardyth card. :) Love how clean and to the point this design is! That pop of red is simply perfect! I'm with you on the vellum...always looking for ways to successfully attach it! This is the perfect solution! Now if I could only find my brads... :)

The vellum circle is such a cool touch and the heart brad is genius!

Ah HA! I wondered how you attached the vellum overlay so cleanly! I didn't realize the heart was a brad...brilliant! Love this CAS card!
