CASology 110 - Letter


This week's CASology Cue Card is Letter!




Oh, this is a fun one - so many different ways to go!

I chose to focus on one letter. U. I originally thought this would be a love u card, but at the time, Struan was writing thank you notes after his birthday. I figured this design - clean, graphic, black and white would be masculine and fun enough for him. I popped the U up and then matted the white panel up to one corner. I really thought that it would look better in the bottom left corner (and give some balance with the 'thank') but it didn't (in my humble opinion). I offset the inside white panel in the same way. Anyway, this little card has already been sent to a generous relative and has done its job.

And, I want to say a very heartfelt thank you to all of you who left such kind comments on Kate's blog (and mine) - she's quite proud of her chance to be last week's GD and has been telling all her friends! We both really appreciate your kindness and support!

Now it's your turn - how will you interpret letter? Don't forget to stop by the blogs of the other DT members for more inspiration:

I think you make your cards look so easy but we know that is not the case. Your cards are so unique to you and one could find them in a sea of cards.

Ardyth this is a clever way to interpretation Letter...I think also to make a card with U or I L U...but problem is I have no cutting machine...LOL if I cut by my self looks not proffesional am I right..maybe if I win Lotto I will buy a die cut machine (my wish :) )I love the black bold behind the white card and the U that pop of your card...LOVE YOUR CAS IDEA dear Ardyth...
