CASology 81 - AND


This week's CASology Cue Card is AND



Ampersands are all the rage right now, but there are other ways of showing 'and'! I decided to make a love equation. The scale of my CTMH people stamps were bigger than I had seen in my mind, so I had to expand my card to allow for adequate white space. My original plan was to use a solid heart as the 'answer', but when I went through my stamps looking for said heart in the correct size, I came across this Neat&Tangled Everyday Circle stamp.

I decided to break out of my box and put the panel on a Sand cardbase rather than black. But that required an additional layer. (the nice thing about black is it forms a really solid frame around your images!) So I cut a red panel to create a thin border to better frame my image panel. I love the additional pop of colour!

Now it's your turn. Before you go, check out the rest of the DT's blogs to see what they did with this week's Cue Card:

This crisp and clean design just wows me, Ardyth. The color combo is very appealing. I love the pop of red against the sand base.

If math was this cool and funky I'm sure more people would enjoy it! Love those little people and the love circle is perfect!

...I'm really liking the sand base! Especially so, with red! Sweet he & she stamps, paired with "LOVE" rather than an expected heart!

I marvel at how precise your mats are layered - amazing!!!

The size/proportions of all of your images look great. This card would be perfect for Valentine's Day, engagement, wedding, or any just-because-love-you occasion:)

I tried picturing this without the tiny red border, and you're right (of course you are), it makes a big difference! Love your non-ampersand "and" card!

*And* this is simply wonderful! Red + sand + cream + images = awesome!
