CASology 197 - Tear


This week's CASology Cue Card is Tear.




I went for cry rather than rip and made a sympathy card. CAS design works well for Sympathy cards - for this one I let the sentiment (which is quite large) stand on its own, with a row of tiny pearls for an addition of (hopefully) elegance. This old "Verses" sentiment is one I often use for sympathy cards.

Now it's your turn to tear into this week's challenge! Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT for more inspiration:

It's a perfect sympathy sentiment - I love the mixed fonts - and the pearls are most definitely an elegant touch.

This is a wonderful sentiment and translates to a thoughtful card! The pearls are the perfect understated embellishment!

Such an interesting cue word, with its entirely different meanings. Such a perfect sympathy card. (I need a few for the stash... let's see how I do...)

Your card is beautiful in its simplicity. I loved it immediately because I have this Verses sentiment, too; it was one of my first sympathy sentiments when I started stamping in earnest.

Lynn said...

Beautiful. That sentiment deserves to take center stage.
