CASology 29 - Flame!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Flame!




I knew I wanted to make my whole card the flame so I sponged various shades of yellow orange and red distress ink onto white cardstock. But then I needed a good sentiment. I thought about "Come on baby, light my fire", and decided to Google and see if there was anything better. This is an Ardyth-paraphrase of a Bruce Lee quote. I know! Bruce Lee - I don't really think of him when I think of romantic, but I thought this was really good.

Here's the whole quote:

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”

Isn't that amazing? I think this will make a great engagement card - I can put the full quote on the inside to demonstrate the long-lasting nature of true love.

Now it's your turn to set the world a-flame! But before you do, warm up by checking out the blogs of the other members of the Design Team:

You could not have picked a better quote! I love that your whole bg is a flame- really makes the sentiment pop!

Fantastic sponging ~ love your card and thanks for sharing the full quote. I am hoping I will soon be needing an engagement card for a friend of mine.

Seriously, the whole card is your flame? I LOVE IT!! So when I saw the word and looked for your card I was expecting to see a boyfriend or something. But, I have to say, even though this is a literal flame, I think it's even more creative! Who would have thought to go so micro. My favorite part of the card itself is the black glitter letters. They totally represent the coal from your quote (right, doesn't it glitter slightly?) So in love with this, Ardyth. A beautiful quote too.
