CASology 128 - Date


This week's CASology Cue Card is Date!




Inlaid die cuts are a popular trend right now, and I thought that they would be a simple, subtle way to add a date to my very simple New Year card.

I started by stamping the Papertrey sentiment in Versafine Onyx. I then lined up the Memory Box number dies on my graph paper before laying a strip of repositionable tape across their backs (this makes proper positioning so much easier!). I cut them out of the stamped panel and then laid them back in.

Now it's your turn!

This is really cool. I was staring at it trying to figure out how you accomplished such straight lettering over the numbers.

Love the clean, crispness of your card and the graph paper idea is so clever! Must remember that in future especially as I found a pad of graph paper while I was cleaning out recently.

Super CAS with high impact. I would have known this was your card anywhere. Love it, and thanks for the graph paper tip. I don't know why I never thought of that!

Super card, Ardyth. Those inlaid numbers are so cool. And I love that it's white on white. Speaking of white...is it cold by you, and/or snowy? Bitter cold here! Stay warm my friend. Bev

Geri said...

'Simply' stunning! Thanks for 'splaining your process of stamping first, then die cutting! I likely shouldn't say this out loud, but I instantly wondered "how did she stamp the sentiment so perfectly in the grooves of the diecut letters?

Yes, I know! Duh! Let's just say that I've not been sleeping well lately....
