CASology Week 232: CUT

Welcome to Week 232 at CASology!

Our generous sponsor this week, STAMPlorations, provided the Design Team members with the word die cut of our choice to create a card. I love the font Shery has used on these words and picked "amazing" for my card.

Wanting the word to be the star of the show, I cut it from a piece of heavy watercolor paper that has been painted with Ken Oliver's Color Burst pigment. I'm very new to this product and was a bit heavy with the intensity so it is hard to see the color variation in this piece, but there is some. Two layers of the word die cut are adhered together and then adhered over the star embossed, star die cut on the card front.

A few Mama Elephant mini-stars are die cut from the same watercolored piece and scattered over the the card front to finish it off. I like having a versatile card like this in my stash to use as a congratulations or birthday card.

For more terrific ideas, check out the Design Team cards!
